I just think the Raptor is the only other truck that comes close to the JK in the cool department. Yet, it's much rarer, and thus, unique... Man, I'm struggling with this...

The only thing that bugs me about the JK is its shoddy quality. And no, I don't wanna hear about 'your' Jeep and how it's perfect and rides like a Caddy...Yeah... The Raptor is unique, and it comes with a much higher quality rating...but it'll cost you.

What does the gc srt8 have in common with the explorer. Let alone any other mid size SUV in the market. Maybe the range sport sc is a good comparison.
Not much in the way of speed--the GC walks it. I know that. The 'fast' SUV experiment, however, has already been done...years ago. Nothing new there.

Starts in the mid-40's....goes to mid-50's or so all decked....
But my JKUS with lift, lights, tires, rims, misc. is approaching $40k! Luckily, my mods are long done. With the Raptor, it's sign and drive--even bead locks from the factory!

Not a chance! I have a Ram 2500 with a Cummins Turbo Diesel, it handles what needs handled in the pickup department, and does pretty fair off road.

Buy a caddy if you want caddy.

Fast SUV is one thing. Fast capable SUV is another. I wanted a range rover sport sc but it felt too small and a step back from my 5.7L durango.

The caddy is roomy, fast, and luxury. I like the raptor, but not over my jk. I love my jk.

Oh defiantly no way I would trade. Even my 11 3.8 JK for a brand new one.
I do think the Raptor is overpriced. That's my sticking point. As a Ford employee, I can get the good discount, but that'll probably cover just the taxes, maybe a bit more.

Caddy's are goofy looking.... It's just that a lot of Jeep slappies will reference them when describing their jk's...
