    Does anyone here have one? I have a few questions, and I haunt found any local to compare or look at.
    1) how much interior room?
    2) how do they handle, compared to the 10?
    3) any significant problems with them?
    4) do they come in black?
    Just found out my wife is pregnant a couple weeks ago, we have been trying for over 5 years so it's no surprise. Anyway, we found out today it's twins, so the SRT10 is a RC, I'm going to need a bigger ride lol. Looking at possibly trading the 10 for the SRT jeep, or just selling it, and getting something a little bigger.

    The interior is definitely more snug than the SRT10 is, but I think it's got more of a luxury look to it. The seats might be uncomfortable if you have a wide ass.
    Handling is awesome, especially if you upgrade your end-links and drop it a bit. It's a smoother ride since it's got coil springs in all corners instead of leaf springs.
    My wife drives mine all the time and she loves it. Says guys always try to race her but she's scared to mash the gas :D.

    1) how much interior room? Not real good, dont have a third kid. If you do any overnight traveling you will not have enough cargo room for two kids and two adults.
    2) how do they handle, compared to the 10? Better than the 10
    3) any significant problems with them? None with mine, I have heard of problems with transfer cases when modded or driven hard.
    4) do they come in black? Yes

    I also have one for sale in the For sale section. ;)

    Honestly. I really like driving ours. We have 72,000 miles with no problems. The stock run flat tires have given a lot of problems, I agree if I had two kids and went on a long trip, there may be a lack of room. The newer they are the better the small things are like headlights and radios

    The 4 door SRT10 has crossed my mind as well, and its not out of the question, I am more weighing the options right now. I found a SRT10 QC in the mineral grey, 06 just like the one i have with extra doors. I like the way the GC looks, and more so just curious hoew they perform, and handle before I do anything. I may very well keep the 10, and find a decent something else for hauling the kids around town. My wife has a 2010 Denali, so we are good for road trips lol, I just want something that will haul the kids, as well as ass lol.

    Super Charge the Denali there done deal. A GC is probly half the size of your Denali on the inside and if your having twins don't forget those baby seats take up a lot of room. FI on a 6.2L would be cool.

    Lmao! I have been working on her since we bought it to let me put a s/c on there. 6.2, all wheel drive mini bus smokin every ones ass lol. That's how I got my 10, I told her it was a supercharger or another toy, another toy it was. That and she traded my 08 SRT Challenger in on her Denali while I was at work. I'm just thinking the GC because it would be roomy enough for all of us around town, and still have the balls to go out and play. I know the QC 10 would offer the same options, but I just can't make up my mind which way to lean. Fortunately I have about 7-8 months to make a decision, with that being said, in all reality I will probably keep my RC 10. I looked at a SS Trailblazer today with 35k miles that the interior looked like it should be around 100k, with a spray painted bow tie to boot. What goes through people's minds with spray paint and badges?

    That's exactly what I did. My twins just turned 3 when I got mine. But I had an '06 Ram QC Laramie, when they were born. Plenty of room.

    I'm not sure what to tell ya i had a jeep a few years ago when the wife and i had the twins and sold the jeep due to the lack of room and bought a escalade. Then the 3rd kid came and the room was fine still but the wife and i didn't like the kids wrecking the white cashmere leather so long story short we sold the caddy and bought a good ole minivan.Laugh if you want but me and the wife both like the van cause the kids can do want they want in it and I don't get pissed when they spill something on the seats. Some day the wife will drive something cool again but not until the kids are older. And as for my SRT quad cab the kids are allowed in it but there is no food/ drinks allowed in it ever. I learnt my lesson as one kid dropped her juice in the white cashmere caddy.
    So for fun i would tell the wife either FI or a minivan LOL:dontknow:
    (I guess the morale of this story is that it's tuff having anything nice when you have kids:D and SRT8 JGC's are nice)

    True it is bigger, but not as powerful, youtube srt8 GC VS denali.

    they did a bumper hook up, yes I know why right. but the big ole mighty denali lost every time.

    I thought it was very funny to see a big bad so called SUV getting tugged around by a smaller suv.

    you could put a supercharger on the denali, but it still would be slow.

    I know the Denali is slow, it's a GM after all lol. Plus I had a SRT GC come real close to spanking my 10 one night. It was a night I actually got it in 3rd, and kept him in the mirrors, thank god lol. I know the Grand Cherokee is nice as well, but it will be my toy/baby hauler, no food or drinks in that either. My wife's Denali is black on black, so they can do what they want in there lol. I will see what happens, if the truck sales, or someone wants to trade then it will happen. If not then my 10 will stay snacked up in the garage.
