Nice looking jeep but personally I think the price is a little high but it has very low mileage. I got a 07 JKU for less than that but it had more miles on it. If it's what you want and what you're willing to pay then I say go for it and enjoy yourself Make sure they give you a carfax and have a mechanic look at it.

Thanks buddy i will def get a carfax! What do you suggest about a mechanic. Its out of town 2 and a half hours away? Should i take it to a local shop there and have them check it out before i buy or when i buy it Have my mechanic look at it here in my home town? Yea price is a lil high im ganna see if they will do like 15 or so!!!

Test drive them both, or more, and see what you like the best. Look up the Blue Book value before you go in, get the car fax on each one and you can probably find a decent 4X4 mechanic close by to give it a once over for a small charge. The 2006 already comes with a winch so chances are it's been out 4 wheeling.

If the X came with a hard top as well as the soft then I'd go for that one. The TJU is better in price based on its options but, of course, has more miles. I'd talk down both of them and play them against each other and see who gives up the best deal.

$22,000, by the way, is brand new with warranty...

No way man. To much in price. I bought a 2006 TJ Sport back in May for $15,000.00 out the door with new General Grabber AT2 tires. Bought it with 50K miles on it. $18,000.00 is too much. You can get them down in price if you haggle. Good luck.
