2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8: House Hunting

June 04, 2012


I've lived in the same apartment for eight years, but now I'm on the hunt* for a bigger place with a better parking situation (read: a garage with a door on it, and a personal driveway). I had our Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 with me while looking at a few places over the weekend, and it proved useful for a baseline test of garage usability.

Our Jeep is neither unreasonably large nor super small by SUV standards, and since it has no roof rack, it should be able to fit in any garage that can legitimately be called a garage.

It would have just fit in this garage, but I wouldn't have been able to disembark from the vehicle. At least the JGC SRT8 looks awesome and imposing as it blocks the alley for an unspecified amount of time. This won't do, though. Next!

*And by the way, I'll be sure to update you daily with boring news of my impending move; stay tuned.
