That's the problem, there's not a real blue book for these cars, I found the other guy who has one in California and he said he was offered 50k for his, to be honest I didn't pay anything near that much, I got it from a GM charity auction, don't really want to sell for money but really want to trade for another machine, I got a collection of cars and I like to trade, I'm in the market for a 2009/2010 jeep srt8 in good shape. I'd consider ur monster, lol
My cousin has a black JeepSRT8 and his brother has a new Black JeepSRT.
I don't see myself trading my car. I think I'll keep it for car shows. I won 3 trophies with it.
Your car has a good set up on it, I have had my cars on display for the past couple of years at detroits Autorama, only reason I want an older jeep is because I think they are better looking than the new ones, I have been in love with the jeep since its conception but when they changed it and made it sooo bulkey I was so disappointed, they took a beast and tamed it, I done a few makeovers in the past years on some older jeeps and the results were amazing, I did a vortech supercharger set up on one with a pulley system, complete exhaust, and of course a tune, damn it was sooo fast, then I did a head and cam package on another one with exhaust and a tune, and I swear I think it was faster than the supercharged one. I think I'm gonna opt for the head and cam package on my 300 when that time comes, you can beat up on it a lot more and alot less maintenance.

There was this stupid Aston Martin V8 Vantage i completely destroyed.
I was driving in the middle lane and there was some construction going on in the far right lane, I intentionally slowed down because I noticed the Aston was going way to fast and would have to merge in order to avoid the construction. I let him in and then he went back out again after the construction was over. Now it was my turn to merge into the entrance to my street so i started to go right and just as I was signalling to enter the moron speeds up and goes right, I drop it down to second, I was doing about 40mph or so, and completely obliterate him. I mean I speed by him and I am 100% sure he floored it at least two car lengths in front of me. Smoke escaped his tailpipes and the sound of an Aston is undeniable.
I love this car Forget numbers, the way the traction control LETS you have fun is unbelievable. The only time I turn it off is if I want a controlled smoke show and completely strike fear into whomever's behind me

I like to drive with the feeling that its better to have and not need than to need and not have !
my 2009 has a a fully built inertia 426 + a 3.6 kennebell on 16lbs parramount drive line all the way and pumps out 750 rwhp on e85 gas
there are very very few car on our Australian roads that can stay with me let alone pass me on the freeway
but at 2.5 tonnes on street tyres, traffic light starts are not a strong point.
so most cars even little ones can jump me at the lights so i just stay with them to about 60-80 kph and when my exhaust is level with there ear i give the 3" exhaust a blast and light up the tyres that usually blows them into another lane
most back off respectfully the one's that get there ambitions mixed up with there capabilities get to see my arse disappear in front of them
the car has done 10.5 1/4 miles on slicks
the best reaction was a yellow lambo (not sure what model) that i just blow away with ezy
when we stopped at lights the look on his face was priceless
i could hear him thinking "there must be something wrong with my lambo" lol
i dont drive around looking for cars to embarrass but it sure is nice to get the respect for this bid cruiser that can blow there fancy doors off lol

I was at a stop light leading to an on ramp today and was next to a red 2012 Jeep SRT, when the light turned green he stomped on the gas as did I. He jumped out about a doors length ahead of me to about 35mph that AWD is hard to beat at launch but then I pretty easily passed him and kept pulling away. The jeep may not be as fast as the 300 SRT but it has a hell of a road presence.
Do you guys ever have someone messing with you and just let it go without doing anything? I decided I didnt' even want to bother with a Honda Accord on the way to work the other day. He was trying to get a rise out of me by riding on my ass and then coming around to my side and revving his engine in a lower gear. I just let it go and ignored him. I was just thinking to myself that this guy can't be serious. I'm looking forward to fun at the drag strip this spring.
^ Good job you didn't try him... 'coz when that vtec kicks in yo' you would have been in trouble... what's 600+ American HP compared to a mighty 200hp @ 14,000rpm?.... pal in that beautiful ride you have I imagine your going to get that a lot!! Problem being to find a car worth your time is gonna be tough!
