I was going to get one, but with the way I priced it compared to the TB SS, it was about 6G's more.....so I decided to go with the blazer....

Defiantly a bad ride though

the front air dam seems a little big or something. its just kinda a little bit off. i would still drive one. i just don't really like a lot of the new jeep front ends.

on SpeedTV, the SRT guys where claiming 0-60 in under 5 seconds, wet or dry. that kills everything in the truck/suv segments. i think they are perty good looking. they put out 420 or so horsepower. very very nice.

definitely love the SRT-8 and the TB SS but who here has driven a 4.6IS X5? theyre bad and theyre quick 0-60 but wont beat an srt-8 but will kick its *** at 150+. but for half the money ill take the SRT-8. hopefully dads dealership gets one in soon, and if i can persuade him to keep it for himself ill post a write up.

There was a thread on 300c forums about them......they said the curb weight is something like 4800 lbs....AWD is great for 0-60 though.

i think jeep should stick to offroad performance, they can keep the hemi but if you want a high perfomace suv go with the SS TB. What do 4th gen f-bodys run 0-60? I think the srt-8's get 425hp but it might be less because of AWD.

The 300c srt8 has 5 more hp and is about 360rwhp so probably a good bit less than that.

i drove a standard 5.7 hemi jeep. thing felt like a pig. you could REALLY feel the weight in the thing...wasnt impressed by the "smaller" engine.

however you cant argue the 0-60 times. they will out 60' the other srt8 cars, but i think the mph is only like 101 vs 108 and the ET Is 3-4 tenths slower i believe.
