Noooob

Hey everyone,

I hope to become a JK or a TJ owner this evening. I used to own an XJ for a while and I am looking forward to being a Jeep owner again!

Before I go take the plunge I would like some feedback, it would be greatly appreciated!
What's your opinion on these two:

2008 Jeep Wrangler for sale in Richmond - 1J4GA69188L611120 - Moore Cadillac

Used Car Inventory - 2005 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Pearson Preowned - Richmond, VA, Chester, Colonial Heights, Powhatan, Ashland, Glen Allen, Midlothian, Mechanicsville, Goochland, Petersburg, Williamsburg, Charlottesville, and Fredericksburg, VA.

Not really apples to apples but both have their advantages.

I first liked the TJ then found the JK. I've browsed around the forum for peoples opinions but there's a lot of information out there to process, especially when I'm just excited to drive a jeep again!

Thanks!

Welcome, I'm buyist to the TJ's.... Only If you need the room of the four door, but I like the Rubi for the trails and run around. Good luck and always remember, there's no wrong decision with a Wrangler.....

Pretty much everybody is going to be biased towards whichever one they chose... Me included.
My best advice is to test drive any you're interested in and get the one that's leaves a perma grin! And check around for prices locally just to make sure you're getting a good deal either way.

Thanks for the welcome everyone, went with the 05 TJ Rubicon. Had a funny feeling about the 08 JK that had been sitting at the dealer for 150 days. Already love it! I will probably spend a fair amount of time making a wish list today haha. The first thing I am doing is taking the tube side bars off. Look forward to having a Jeep!
