2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 392 Burnout
Yes, it can be done by shutting down the front end. I don't believe that just anyone can do it though. After some hot laps on the track, these tires were good for nothing more than what you are looking at. This is from a launch of 2012 SRT8 lineup at Willow Springs.





WK1 JEEP SRT8 vs. WK2 2012 JEEP SRT8 vs. 2014 JEEP SRT
WATCH THE TRACK DRIVE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VLt_2ucLbBA The old Jeep looked best and was lighter than the 2012 redesigned model. We are going to sell the old one and get a new one. Though I could get the 2012 cheaper ($15,000), The 2014 is the one with the UCCONNECT TOUCH: SRT VERSION and LAUNCH CONTROL. Eventually I'll make a launch control video, but it's already been done so I'm not rushing.
