    With HC sitting in the garage and sitting under cover. I was thinking how much fun it would be to have this trackhawk with some winter tires to go play in the snow. Too bad it would look sick in PCP. Guess I am getting bored and need some warm weather.

    Trackhawk is a horrible name for it. As a 5 year Jeep SRT owner I bet it will be "scary" in winter conditions.

    With the right tires, and as long as it's 4wd, it will be a beast in the snow.

    Ours with Blizzaks is "OK" in the snow. I wouldn't call it a beast at least not in the good sense. For one thing there is just not enough ground clearance and it sure won't plow our wet heavy snow. I guess I am spoiled by my GMC Z71 PU 4WD with studded winter's on all four corners snow performance.
    Hopefully our current winter weather trend this year will continue and it won't matter.

    Agree but I think the name has something to do with it being a "Jeep" and they are not going to change the brand to Dodge. As for driving it, yes agree I have Blizzaks on my Range Rover Sport it does pretty well, I had a Grand Cherokee Overland that did great, but again nothing close to the power of a Hellcat.

    So I guess where I was coming from the challenger is never going to be my daily driver, and love it so much I would give up my RRS for this if I could get away with it. Trackhawk.png

    This would be fun to drop a Hellcat motor in as well! Jeep PCP.jpg

    Looks like a photoshop job. Engine is canted rearward massively in that pic.

    Cool. Engine in the video looks like it's level. In that still it appears to be canted back towards the firewall by a few degrees, which I believe would not work. But in the video looks like it's level.
    That Jeep would be insane, and possibly in a bad way. LOL

    You're the first person I've ever seen say anything negative about a Jeep SRT in snow. All reports I've ever read is they are fantastic in snow.

    Didn't mean it to be negative. Just comparing to my other vehicle which is better suited to deep snow and bad weather in general.
