I agree also. I might be biased since there is tuning around the corner, if I have issues with the current tranny, I can get a beefed up one within a couple of days. On the other hand I wish I had that exhaust, that is *****in'. Whats up with the narrow pipes

I'm excited. Thankfully they are redesigning the boring rear tailgate.

Hopefully there's no price increase.

Shorter slots remind me of the new Cayennes.


I like big ones better!

Tuning for the '12 Jeep SRT is out (as of last night) so no need to trade in anything.

I'm personally excited about the 8 speed. Might considering picking up one of these for the wife in 2014.

Hell, I'd be happy if our WK's just had a 6th gear for the highway.
