some of these posts are dead on--some crack me up. Let me give my opinion since I own each, and have raced them many times against each other. I will even give you a vid...

stock-GRand Cherokee SRT8 will jump you off the line--and can run 13.3 in the 1/4 pretty consistently. After that it falls off hard-but not as hard as some here think. So-stock 335 will play catch up and then pass. V3--catch up as well but much quicker and easier pass. (335Xi will launch right with it-tuned will jump it out of the gate)

the other srt8s..well mine has just a tune and intake. It gets 404rwhp/400rwtq. It runs consistent 12.8s in the 1/4 on street tires with a best of low 12.7. It traps 111ish consistently--but -the 1/4 is its weakest link. at 111-its just warming up. Where it is deadly is from 100 -150 ish (top speed 174)

for those of you who say you "rape" them even with mods?? Well if your running JB3 on map 7 or 8, with race gas, you will slowly- and I mean slowly pull on my srt8 to about 130ish--and then it will close on you and pass you. If your running anything less--it will pull on you, slowly-right from the start of the roll race.

Here is a vid (advance to 4:50 into it)-my 335Xi on JB2HH, running a 12.5 with a 60 ft of 1.75. The SRT8 ran 12.8 with a 60 ft of 2.0. Don't laugh at the BMW--currently the fastest Xi out there on dragtimes (yes BOB-I expect you to get me while I am in florida-but I am coming back my friend). The srt8 was closing at the line and had this been another 1/16th mile-the srt8 would have passed.

My point is--at the 1/4 mile track is one thing--on the street from a roll is a whole nother thing. fyi--one of the sts-v cars in the vid was mine too.

I miss my Jeep. There's a few other guys on here that had the Jeep
Srt8 besides myself. Jeff, and Jdred both had one. They may chime in.
There's not much out there in rear wheel drive form that can out launch the Jeep. If you run one from a roll, you have a better chance.
Mine was pretty heavily modded before I sold it. Without N2O, I was running 12.4's pretty consistently, trapping at 107-108 mph, with a 1.70 60 ft.
I had PP Heads, cam, headers back, Canned tune, phenolic spacers, cai....etc .etc. Never got a chance to run it at the track with the 150 shot though.

I got to ride in a cammed, ported, heads, headers, tune, exhaust one once. Lets just say it fricken scared me--the 0-60 was like 3.0.

But even stock-street light to stree light--regardless of weather--what a BEAST! great vehicle.

I also miss the launch of my jeep. Not many other vehicles launched as hard as that did. I raced friends with 335i many times and from a dead stop you can always put a few car lengths on the 335i before it start catching up and usually passes in the 90mph and up range.

Haha. My best 0-60 stock was 4.8 with the Dashawk. Modded without the Juice was 3.64. 3.77's where my average. The thing was crazy. With the 100 shot, I pulled a 3.11, spraying off the line with the tires spinning!!!!

LMAO! Yes--when I went for that ride he had a dashhawk--(I haveone in my modded 300C) I was lookingfor the nearest bathroom after that. Its hard to explain to someone what 0- 60 in 3 seconds actually feels like.

I have to agree with your post my friend! I do like the SRT8 quite a lot!!!

I don't expect to rape the SRT8 I must admit I do however think that my cousins SRT8 will lose as it's stock. My other cousin wants me to spank him knowing full well that the next day he will go mod shopping !!!

Have you had a chance to ride in a 335xi? I would highly recommend to sit in a AWD launch of our own car. It is neck-snapping good.

I have an AT 335xi w/ AFE dual cone intake, stock exhaust w/ cat delete, and SSTT. The SSTT is the modest of tunes and my launch is still crazy. I can't wait to up my tune and add a few more things.

My car was stock for one week before I modded it and I didn't find any SRT's that wanted to go. But I have gone up against a lot of them with my current setup and pulled on all of them including a Jeep off the line. Never raced any above 130 MPH and didn't know any of the guys driving them so couldn't tell you if they were modded or not.

Only one SRT beat me... a friend's 10 second neon

SRT8 Jeeps are like 5200 lbs. They are still damn fast for how heavy they are.
A blast to drive too!

Well a fully loaded one lists for $52k - I can imagine one could be had for a whole lot less than that at the dealerships.. Not bad for a tire-smoking SUV that keeps up close to our car.
