now refine the interior a bit, and add some more ponies and it will be worth the price tag. I'll still wait for the 2015 or so. But with tuning almost available for these. alot of people will be trading in their 2012's i think.

The 2014+ will have a new PowerNet architecture. My guess is tuning won't transfer over easily.

I wont be one that trades in my '12 just because. I feel like I got the best of the WK1 with some added benefits of the new stuff. If this one gets totaled also then thats different. I cant afford sticker price nor would I pay sticker so that has some influence also. Plus if I were gonna pay anymore for the Jeep I would not be getting a Jeep it would be a ctsv or c63 amg. The 2014 do look nice with the bigger nav screen and 8 speed will give decent mileage. I see 21-22hwy mpg now so how much better am I gonna get? Not enough to pay the difference in price

This actually did make me angry, not too much, but a little angry.
To me, that's a good kick in the groin

Not so sure about the shorter grille slots. Seems less in proportion. Those on the inside I know who have seen it without cammo gear agree.

I drove the 8-spd 300 SRT and current WK2 SRT back to back for 3 days and honestly don't see the big deal. Prefer less shifting to economy myself. But I could be one of the few
