I am getting rid of my 2 door wrangler for a better family ride. So I was going to get a used SRT8 Cherokee. I wanted the DVD player for the kids so I was going to go with a 2009 since I don't think that was not an option for 2010. I am going to throw a Vortech, high flow cats, and headers on right away too. Is 2009 a good choice or is the 2010 better and put in a aftermarket DVD? I was not sure if there are more performance options on the older SRT8.

Performance is the same for all wk1 srt8's.. 2008's and older have some nice interior upgrades, and if you have luxury opion 2 you will have the dvd player already installed!


Btw, welcome to the forum! And good luck with your search!

Thanks for the useful reply Jeep Trick. It looks like they took some of the features away in 2010. Looks like I will start looking for 2009.

Don't kid yourself though man... for the right price an 06-08 would look just as good in the driveway and you'd enjoy it all the same.

Considering 10 of the top 11 are either an 06 or 07...... that's my answer.;)

I have an '09 with every available option and I can say you won't go wrong if you can find one. Heck, even the rear seats are heated and the DVD is nice factory installed. Also, I absolutely would NOT buy one without the Kicker audio unless you get a really good deal and then you can buy all the factory parts and install later. It's a great system. Common problem you're going to find is that people jack the rear sub when they sell or trade it in. >50% of the SRT's I found optioned for kicker were missing the sub (including the one I bought). I was lucky to find one for cheap on ebay but they're not on there often.

The compunine VIN decoder was invaluable during my search but since it's no longer around not sure how you can quickly search for options by VIN.

09 if you've got kids as it still has the rear dvd & sat. TV. They took those options out in 10. The 10's however have a 5/100 powertrain where the other years only have 3/36.

My old 2006 had the 7" DVD screen, awesome for the time, pathetic by today's standards, 6 years later.

Other years got upgraded sizes of the rear screen but still only up to near iPad level at the last year I think:

Yes sir, not 'officially banned' but can't get on none the less....
None of your concern yaccster. How would you deal with someone who created multiple accounts only to spam this site with numerous visitor messages directing members to other sites? Oh, and lets not forget his image with the site names he attempted to plaster here several times because he thought he was funny. I tried to reason with the guy soldier to soldier and at one time thought I was getting somewhere only to have him pull the same crap in what he thought was his personal little playground. I got tired of cleaning up after him.

If the factory DVD is important, the '09 had the largest one before being discontinued '10. Both the '09-10 have pretty much the same features. I would definately be wanting the Kicker system. Way better than the Boston on IMO. Good luck in your search!
