Well, I finally pulled the trigger and bought a 2006 Grand Cherokee SRT-8. Great looking SUV and performnace that is ridicolous to say the least. Interior materials are subpar at best, kind of like the V. There are a few mods out there that can be done to make the GC accelerate in 911 TT, F-430 and so on territory. So far this thing is a blast even though it is automatic.

I got to drive one of these at the SRT Track experience. When one comes near you - GO! The GC SRT8 is the fast 0-60 vehicle I've ever experienced. 4.5 seconds with no wheel spin. I drove it on the slalom course and it holds it's ground well. Wish my wife wanted one. As for the interior, believe it or not, it's the best of the SRT-8 bunch by a long shot. :thumbsup: Congrat's on the purchase.

I was considering the GC SRT8 not too long ago. Then I noticed my Denali is basically a GM version of that. Only thing is, it's not quite as fast or as agile. I'll consider a GC SRT8 in the future when GS Motorsports doesn't blow motors with their supercharger kits.

it is black and has all the options aside from the rear DVD player. GS Motorsports and Hennessey engineering have a few trick engine mods that can make GC SRT-8 insanely fast.

Very nice vehicles. Keep your gas card handy though...they seriously suck down fuel at a comical rate. You will not believe how rediculously bad milage it gets. But who cares right?? Take some pics of that baby and post 'em! :D

The gas mileage for the V is bad when you really get on it, compared to the Jeep at full throttle the V seems like a prius. I really did not even consider gas mileage when I bought either of the cars. You really can not make fuel consumption a priority when you buy a high performance vehicle.

:alchi: :alchi:
