    I hate jeeps but I just read in motortrend that the new jeep cheroke srt8 does 0-60 in 4.6 seconds. Thats pretty quick for a heavy truck. Its not wheeling oriented at all, just low and fast, and I think its ugly.

    A guy in our office bought one recently and we got to ride in it to lunch one day. It was very quick but I wasnt all that impressed personally. The AWD really hooks up. It is just like a sports car. Goes from 60 to 120+ REALLY quick as well. Funny thing he traded it a couple weeks later for a basic Grand Cherokee!

    I've been in one, unbeleivably fast for a Jeep... It will throw you back in your seat. Big coin though.

    Yeah, I saw that...a SUBURBAN is a heavy truck...but even in the grand sceme of things, is still a very light truck. You shoulda been here for the old cab over KW with an 8V-71 that ran just under 12 seconds in the 1/4 mile at the diesel show.

    Not yet, but you can get a 2wd one with leather and everything for just at 30k...not too bad of a price for a 385 horse SUV...
