Hi All,

I'm a car guy and looking to get a used vehicle that's a combination of sports car and station wagon since I haul around some lightweight items frequently (no need for an off road SUV). I was thinking an SRT might be a good option and I'm also looking at Magnums.

Here's my use case:

  • Use as a daily driver at 12k mi/yr
  • Take long 6 hour trips and want to arrive without feeling jangled and beat up
  • Enjoy blasting around the hilly and curvy roads where I live
  • Never take it off road.
  • Never track it.
The power and straight line acceleration of the SRT is great, but what about the handling in curves? How does the SRT compare to the stock Grand Cherokees that it is derived from? The SUVs I've been in aren't good handling performers so what kind of handling does the SRT offer?

Thanks!
So no issue with any of that. Mpg will suck no way around that. But all around they are great trucks. Our own super moderator CM1 used to or still track races his. I found the stock setup suspension to be awesome. It never feels loose to me. The truck was always well planted. With it now being boosted it’s even more fun to drive. There are plenty of low mileage ones floating around still. Not sure if you want a wk1 or wk2. Again I’m partial to the wk1 because that’s what I have and its really been a great truck. I’d only consider replacing it for maybe hellcat powered durango but that hasn’t happened yet.

I have been noticing a lot of new people on the forum in the past 6 months. The point of this thread is a place for you guys to post questions that you may think are dumb. If you guys want to know something about the Jeep and can't find it using the "search" feature, post it up in here and someone will come to your rescue without biting off your head.;) Maybe Bernie can even make it a sticky and even make one of these for the "PERFORMANCE" section too. Just a thought. Ask away guys/gals......
Where the hell has Keoni been?

Lmaoooo, wudupppp fellassssss!

What is the idler pulley mounted on and is it replaceable, I looked behind it and it seems cracked and is chewing up the idler pulley. I can’t find it on any diagrams on molar parts online.

Anyone else excited to see the OGs still posting?!? I eventually gave in and joined the Facebook groups, but I really wish more people would stay on here as well, especially the OGs!

I'm going to upgrade to the D1-x this summer. Every picture I see has the coolant reservoir overflow tank removed. Is it being relocated or removed completely? If its being relocated, where is it going and what new part are you using?

Just under 2 qts for the front and just over 2 qts for the rear. I would probably get a total of 5 qts to be safe. And the additive is not required. 75W-140 front and rear.

I did a write up about the Karma radiator. Totally worth it. I wouldn't mess with the electric one if its your daily.

I do not daily it, barely sees the road anyway. I’ll just stick with the OEM.

Anyone got an idea what this things part number is or where I can get one? From what I have been able to find this is a passenger side dual zone actuator adapter.
It is part number 12 in the diagram
