test drove it and everything went good, got the dealer to go down to 12,600 + tax etc. thinking about going and picking it up tomorrow!!

Thanks. Since this will be my first 4wd, what is the best way to make sure it's all running ok. I know you aren't supposed to do it on dry pavement.

Welcome to the Forum

Mileage and price are very reasonable. Looks clean and well cared for.
You are going to have to get the salesman to let you take it somewhere to test the 4WD features. I'm pretty sure that you can find a lot somewhere or just drive it over the curb onto the dealerships nicely landscaped grass. Test both 4H and 4L.

As for the mod bug...it starts the minute you drive it off the lot. Sorry, but that's how Wranglers operate.

Went back today to talk to the finance guy. They offered to low of a trade in price for my Tacoma. So I walked out the door. Hopefully they will call me in a day or two with a better offer. If not I guess I'll just wait for the right one.
