    Grand Cherokee Srt8 - Should have known better than to go check one out

    Damn . . I should have known better than to go and check it out.

    Was following a used 2015 GC SRT8 on Carguru for a bit as it only has 20k miles.

    My current family ride (Lexus NX200 F-sport) is a great city car but with two kids and a dog its getting a bit cramped as we like to do road trips. I have limited room for parking a large vehicle at home so my options are somewhat limited and I will also need this beast to do some towing a few times per year. Hence the need for the v8 and Brembos are a plus.

    I generally put about 7k miles per year on my main car so the gas mileage doesn't worry me.

    She is a city car so will need some love on the front fascia from folks playing bumper parking. Can't see it in the pic but the bottom passenger side has some pretty deep scrapes and one of the wheels was friggin curb stomped. . . lol so that will eventually need replacing.

    Am picking her up later today and will make sure to unleash the beast as I fly through afternoon traffic at a blistering 15 MPH.

    And of course I still have the magnum. . . .that car ain't goin no where.
