Idk about the 70/30 split on the awd now in track mode, maybe to many broken front axles? Lol I like it though, not over mine but I like that they got rid of the chrome rear brow. I do not like that empty space on the inside corner of the headlights, I feel the light should cover the whole space. Glad to see they upped the towing capacity also

Well to be on the safe side im going to run 40 lbs of air in the fronts at the track so they will spin a little and 36 in the rear.

I'm sure they are thinking more power to 2 wheels rather than 4 gets more power to the ground resulting in faster track times

I like the new interior upgrades and the of course I love the update to the tranny. However, I feel that the look is getting less and less aggressive. I think this can be fixed with some subtle aftermarket mods, but I think the SRT guys could have looked at some of the mods already done to the 2012 MK2's to make this car look less like the standard Grand Cherokee and more like the high performance car that it is. Also would have been nice to see a little bump in the HP to shut the BMW/Porsche guys up for a while.

I'm still interested in seeing this thing in person and taking it for a drive.....

Same here. I won't buy a car without test driving it first. I want to see it in person, sit in it, play with all the button, and drive it before I sign. I know some dealers out there don't like letting people test drive them brand new to keep the milage low. So hopefully I can find a dealer to cooperate with me.

Probably not. Well, not until I see on and drive it first. The WK2 was a sporadic buy. But, with the talks of the 6.2 s/c I would wait to see that. The 14 with the s/c would be perfect!
