Looking at jeeps

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

Jeeps hold their price quite well and as far as the HVAC goes, I live in Arizone and only run a soft top and it's great. Hovever, because this is the newbie check-in area, you may not get the answers you are looking for. Since the years you are asking about split model years (TJ='97-'06 and JK='07-present) I suggest you check out these forum areas and post your questions there, I think you'll get a better response.

In the mean time, I just like to say . . .
