I've been in a Toyota Tundra for the last few years and for the last week I've really wanted a Jeep...bad. I'm looking at 04-08 wranglers and most are selling for 12-18k or at least that's what they are asking with 60-130k miles or so. They seem high priced for the mileage to me.
Is this normal or does the price jump at summertime?
Also, with the high miles, are there maintenance issues that I should expect to be expensive in the near future?
I live in Dallas, TX, I don't mind the summer heat but how is the jeeps heating/cooling system with a soft top? I plan on going topless and doorless a lot but curious about that.
I plan on getting one with no lift or other things that are a telltale sign of abuse and adding all the options I want. Any advice or opinions will help
