That's the same approach I have. Better to lose your deposit then give them more money for an even bigger mistake.

Idk where you heard this. But after readin on here and and talkin to people I know. The v8s have a lot of problems! The transmission may be better but the motor is worse. So I guess it depends on what ya want. I got the i6 cause they are more reliable and rarely have problems. If you look most of the people on here who have engine problems have a v8.

I heard the motor is okay as long as it's taken care of. Well hopefully it all works out. Just booked my flight to pick up the truck tomorrow. As soon as I pick up the truck I am going to place my order for Soft 8s, 31x10.5r15 tires, new shocks and 2" BB and new headlights. The running boards will come off too.

Too bad your lifting it . . Either of these would have made a nice looking tow truck and kept up the SRT theme. ; )

Not sure if the Ram rims fit on a WJ but I have seen them on a WK and they look very fresh. Anyway good luck with the new/used WJ.

The 2nd wheels I had almost exact same wheels on my first Viper, also black. I love SRT10 Jeeps but thought it would be cool to get something a little high off the ground versus low like the viper. Plus it's cheaper, the wheels and tires will cost me 700 shipped

Don't let the I6 guys give you buyer's remorse. Their piston skirts will break off any minute now

Of course my valve seat could drop like a testicle tomorrow but after 171K miles, if it hasn't by now, I figure it ain't gonna unles I overheat it.
