hey guys,

I am new to this site and new to the Jeep srt8. I was hoping someone could help me out regarding the srt8. I currently have a 03 G35 coupe but could be getting rid of it very soon for a jeep I have found for sale. It is a 2006 with 37xxx miles. What are some things I should closely pay attention to when buying one of these? Also, are there any setbacks when comparing an 06 to say an 08 or 09?

I really just wanna get some basic info on these cars since I could have one here very soon.

Thanks

Yea G35 is a hate/love relationship. So much available so much you can do, so its hard to just give it up. My G just got featured on www.grocerygettercrew.com stanced low and wide lol.
Nothing ever goes wrong with my G unless I break it myself. Like had to swap axles cause My car is too low and rubber boot got cut lol. But never ever needs to go to service.

Im kinda scared of these jeeps going back for tranny issues and such. Besides tranny I wouldnt worry about anything else cause, I basically modify everything I can get my hands on lol.

Welcome to the forum. In regards to your question about the difference between model years, check this website out it will have all the information you need: http://www.wkjeeps.com/wk_srt8_features.htm

Things you should pay close attention to:
- condition of the wheels (curb rash)
- paint condition
- carfax
- what modifications have been done to the vehicle
- regular oil changes and maintenance up keep
- check out the remaining warranty look for an extended warranty etc.
- check out the quality of the interior (leather seats especially)
- what performance package does it have? (SRT Option Group I, II, III)
and the list goes on. Those are just some starters.

Actually if u get lucky from a private owner thats the way to go. Last year my friend picked up a 06 with 70k for like 18k. Dealers are always lookin to rape.
