Smile New WK2 - Mineral Gray. Pics!

Well, one thing lead to another and I wound up with this. I'm trading in my 07 for the 2012. I was able to work a deal I felt comfortable with, and decided it was a good decision. As much as I love the looks of my 07 and the tuning and after market support, I felt the 2012 was more practical. I love the slammed look of my 07, but with my cross country travels the lowered stance can be a downfall at times. I guess as I get older, (Only 26 right now), my priorities and needs change. I'm looking towards the future, and I believe the WK2 will do me good for the next 5 years+.

I haven't taken the vehicle yet, more than likely by the end of the week. I didn't want the 3 season tires that were on the WK2, I wanted the all season. I got the dealer to take care of that for me in my deal. I do a lot of all weather driving and prefer the tire designed for it! As much as I love the SRT8 heritage, this is still a jeep. It should be able to tackle the elements haha, and a light off pavement excursion. I feel the WK2, though lacking in a couple things, but nothing is perfect, suits me great! Sure the larger nav would be awesome and some of the tech features it offers, but then again I am more than excited about the nav system in there. It's a step up from my 07, and frankly I don't use it that much anyways. I usually use Garmin on my iPhone 4S anyways.

While I am waiting for the new tires I have begain the mods already. 5% tint was just added today. I am going to be discussion aftermarket alarm support tomorrow and see what I can do about that. I love the Viper Smart Start systems, I run it in my 07. Also, I like having a digital tilt sensor for those wheels. Tomorrow I will figure that out.


Big shout out to Jim (J&D), I'm blaming you for making this happen


Without further a-du...some pics. Enjoy!














Fixing her up a bit.






And...You'll be missed, but never forgot. Every single day I enjoyed this car. I still admire it to this day. I'll catch myself staring all the time. Fair well WK1, it's been real fun

I like the blacked out rear exhaust apron that tells me to black out all the trim and powder coat gloss black those wheels and black out the chrome boomerang.I have a extra set of Slotted/Drilled OEM rotors for that badboy.I ordered a modified throttle body.My buddy put it on his SRT WK2 last week.He said there is big difference lowend torque and mid thrust launch.The stock Throttle body on the 6.4 is the same as the 5.7 the shop that does them widens it to 84-85 mm .1268 got one as well

Awesome. I'm not sure what route I am going to go with mods yet. I know I gotta have my limo tint. That's a given. I swiped my catch can outta my 07, I'm gonna see if I can make it work on the WK2. I found a threaded hole that should work it looks like, just not sure if that bracket will work. Maybe this weekend, I'll figure that out?
