Official - 2014 SRT8 Wish List - SRT8 Engineers Take Notice

I'm waiting to pull the trigger on an SRT8 JC when the Re-Freshed 2014 Arrives. We all know it's gonna have an 8-speed and an Enormous Screen in the dash but what else would you like to see.

I'll start things off.

1. Matte Paint Option

2. Black Headliner like the Charger SRT8

3. Chrome-Delete Option for Exterior Trim or possibly swap the chrome for "brushed" to match wheel finish

4. 22" better looking OEM wheels.


Chime in with what you think should be added and let's get some of these ideas over to the SRT8 engineers and make some "wishes" become reality.

1) No blobs in the paint
2) No body panel issues, like front bumper pulling out and fender well imperfections
3) No carbon fiber interior trim issues

I guess you could sum it up and say "better quality control". Current level of QC is a disappointment-we've had these small issues on both of our SRT8's.

I'm still waiting, that's my one of my biggest complaints right now. I need to mod now...

The one thing I would of liked also is the option for a tow hitch or center exhaust. It's nice to have a hitch but it should be left to the buyer if they want to keep the tradition for the center exhaust.

I would like to see:
Debadging option.
Black Wheels. I can't speak to the black chrome wheels until I see one in person on a WK2.
Steel Blue as a color option.
Fix all of the issues that the 2012 has.
DVD screens in the head rests. My girls will like that!
Center exhaust. We have beat this one to death already.
More hp/same price.
and finally - The ability to drive over a moose. Ha!!! JK!!!

lol! you guys crack me up. this is like the hopes and dreams thread. Kinda like hitting the 100 million lotto jackpot. However, M5biemer has a good point, at least make the quality better out of a 65k vehicle. i probably would have returned it with some of the issues you guys are having. and the fact you cant tune it!? complete BS. how is it diablo is already tuning the 2013 gt500 and the 2013 ZR1. but we cant crack the code on the 2012 jeep srt8. complete BS if you ask me. Seems like ford and chevy want their customers to modify their vehicles as they see fit, and chrysler only wants you to modify it when and how they see fit.

How about having the keyless entry system also lock the vehicle when you leave it after 5-10seconds.. Like the CTS does. Also add a keyless entry pad on the tailgate.
