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.
So you have to want to turn the jeep into an absolute beast to be a "LONGTIME" platform owner? If i dont want to build it for "maximum affect" i am not a longtime owner like you even though I had my WK1 before you did?
That doesnt make any sense. The Jeep is my Daily Driver; I want it to be factory fun and reliable and not really have to touch it to have moderate performance. I have 2 other cars and a motorcycle to mess around with (vette, sti, cbr). Not everyone buys the jeep to make a crazy performance machine; i would actually venture to say the hardcore enthusiasts (ie mega-modders) are actually in the minority of all those that purchase. The people at jeep have to find a balance to please the modders and casual buyers to maximize happiness and profit, not an easy task to say the least.
