Factory 570 HP minimum.
As far as I'm concerned, the rest of the stuff on the 2010 is just fine so I couldn't care less about fancier wheels, fancier radio, etc. And 5 speeds in the transmission is plenty.

1. Much more power. Needs to be up there with the GT500 & Camaro ZR1
2. Minimum 6 speed transmission
3. A bumper that stays on the damn truck.
4. Drilled & Slotted rotors
5. A head unit that's worth a damn. The one in this WK2 truck sucks & so does the the new ones in the Chargers/300's. (my wife has the new 300C and her radio is garbage also)
6. A much more aggressive sounding exhaust.
8. folding mirrors
9. LED everything
10. Stock 180 T-Stat
11. Tuning
I can go on for days!!!!!!

1) Not having to read about it for nearly a year waiting for order arrival in Australia...
2) That is all (*Still waiting, and couple of months still to go - No price even* )

But seriously, the tuning ability has got to be the main thing. Look at Toyata/Subaru bringing a car purpose-built to modify. Turbo-ready engine, door handles moved to allow rollbar, computer for tuning, headrests reversible for helmet, etc etc. QC niggles suck, but is definitely improving, so is a no-brainer anyway.

I seriously doubt we will see a power increase in the Jeep SRT8 for a while. The focus seems to be on the 6.2L supercharged rumor and it isn't even slated for the WK in the documents rumored to be from within Chrysler.

I have to agree with the comments on the front bumper that stays on the vehicle. I looked at a 2012 yesterday, used at a great price, and found the bumper starting to pop....

Im simple...

More than 5 gears.
More power.

Im glad there is a hitch now instead of the center exhaust. I know the center looks better but i want to use mine as an suv. Is there no way for the aftermarket to make an exhaust go out the center for you guys? Sorry havent been keeping up with it.

^^ I also agree that you guys are asking for an awful lot for a 58k base price. If it gets reliable power increase, tranny increase, and keeps the current interior im willing to pay for it.

Lastly, i dont see why you guys are concerned with headrest monitors, bigger/better nav screens, and wheels. Those seem like easy aftermarkent fixes to me.

People need to separate realistic wish lists from unrealistic. I posted a realistic wishlist. If we are going to post super unrealistic then the vehicle is going to cost $90k

Not a fan of groupthink and limitless congratulatory high-fives.

I'd say once again, Winston has hit the nail on the head! Good post, and hopefully SRT is reading this (we know you are), and paying special attention to what the LONGTIME platform owners want. You know, the guys who have actually built an SRT for maximum affect.
