Greetings! My name is Jourdan. I live in the Milwaukee area of South Eastern Wisconsin. I am a programmer, designer and photographer. I currently drive a diesel-sipping 2009 Volkswagen Jetta TDI.

I used to own a custom turbocharged 2004 Chevy Impala, then a 500RWP Supercharged 4.6L V8 Mercury Marauder. :eek:

Ever since I had to part with my dear Marauder, I've been having dreams of high horsepower and torque. So here I am. :D I am on the search for my next baby. A Jeep SRT8 is next on my list of dream vehicles.

I'd really like a 2010 model with brembos and the backup cam. Is there anything I can look out for? avoid? I'll be looking around the forums for threads that cover the typical questions n00bs ask...

Welcome to the forum! And all jeep srt8's have brembos, and i think if they have a nav (which most do) they will have a backup camera.

With 2010's you should be good, just take it for a drive and see if there is a vibration at 70mph, and make sure the fluids have been changed on time.

Good luck! :D

From what I can tell from my quick searches here on the forum, if the vehicle has this problem it's most likely a control arm(s)/tie rod(s) issue?

What is the suggestion for coming across a vehicle like? Skip it?

Welcome, good luck & happy hunting. You might want to give Ekaz a PM, he is/was selling his Jeep & he lives close in Chicago. Its the ultra rare Modern Blue also, I think its an '09. Don't know exactly what you are looking to spend but his is in EXCELLENT condition & has a very extensive mod list including a 426 w/built tranny & tons of visual mods.

You’re doing the right thing by being on this forum b4 you go and get one. I really didn’t know about the forum till I got mine and didnt really know what to look for in a used jeep. So ask question and they will be answerd. Look at the ones that are selling on here someone is bond to have seen it in person and can tell something about it.
J&D's is right Ekaz has one in the chicagoland area. I don’t know what you are trying to spend but Ekaz does have a bad azz jeep. I seen it up close and that thing is sick. Don’t know what he is asking for it but if you want a nice ride that has everything in it that might be your best way to go. Good luck.

A rig like Eric's probably doesn't become available too often. It caught my eye when I saw it for sale. I'll just have to just keep mine and dump another 20k into it to get it to that level. I would definitely take a look at it. Great buy for low miles and mods done.
