    Again, I seriously doubt we'll see anything like that or at least, in the foreseeable future. Right now, there aren't even any solid dates on when we'll see the diesel.

    I'd like to think a Jeep version of the Raptor (i.e. SRT) in a limited production run sometime in the future would get my attention...and wallet out.

    Very true.

    Wouldn’t that be great?! Only with a V8 though. It’s a shame Ford put a v6 in the raptor.

    It would be great! But I agree, I’m not holding my breath.

    Like Sandstorm? That'd be pretty badass. Probably never happen though.

    One thing on our side is they put an SRT in most all of they're vehicles. Why not a JT.

    To me it looks like someone photoshopped the front of sandstorm on a JT and started a rumor.

    Was at the dealership yesterday and saw the price tag on the Grand Cherokee Hemi suped up version. Good god, it was 85k! It was badass though. Fingers crossed for that option in the future in a wrangler!

    Have you drove the Raptor with the v6? I have one and also had the gen1 with the 6.2 v8 and that v6 has way more balls than that v8 had. The only downside I found with the v6 is that it sounds like a v6. That 6.2 with a corsa extreme exhaust sounded amazing!

    That being said I have been thinking about reading the Raptor in for a Galdiator. So tough cause I really love the Raptor.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
