My 2009 SRT8 was delivered last night. My '05 CTS-V is gone but not forgotten. The Jeep is stock except for a Mopar CAI but I must say this thing is definitely a beast! Certainly faster than my lightly modded V out of the hole and perhaps even from a roll. I'm amazed that it handles better than my V. Much more solid and confidence inspiring.

Here's a few professional pics from the dealer ad. Will post up some personal pics when I get them. I already added front SRT grill badge and rear SRT8 badge. As you can see it is CLEAN but had a lot of road grime from being on a carrier across several states so I clayed and waxed it today. Looks even better than below.

Looks beautiful. Just one thing IMO, you need to get an SRT8 badge to put back on the rear. No Jeep though.

It was in Chicago but at a high end private dealer. Maybe they picked it up from them if you sw it over there. Car is one owner out of Georgia originally. It had a hard drive full of gospel/inspirational music on it.

One thing that made my heart drop is I could not get the nav/radio on. Disconnected the battery for a while then I was able to get I on. Battery later died on me while I was messing with the radio loading songs for quite a while. Put a charger on it then went out and drove for about an hour. All seems well now and the Kicker system is awesome even without rear sub which someone nabbed. It must have sat for a while and the battery drained.

Congrats! Beautiful Jeep. I think these jeeps in that color will be a collectors item some day, they are so rare.

These dark blue ones are nice looking. A local guy (doug) has one and I love it. I didn't realize how limited production these things were.

Lowered with the chrome 22" oem rims would look ridiculous.

They are indeed rare however it's interesting that I had no trouble finding several for sale around the country. There was a '10 loaded out that went for $33.5K on eBay right as I started to look. Only like 20K miles. Makes me sick.

Awesome find man. I was sooooo stoked when I found my '08 Modern Blue as you don't see that color much at all. I've never seen another one in person, in fact.
