Lease or Buy

Random question here. I already own my jk but I was curous. Does Jeep only sell wranglers or do they have lease options as well? I would think leasing would be difficult because of how we all love to modify our rigs.

They do lease them. Had somebody's son sneak one out to offroad it, passenger kept jumping out to pull branches out of the way

We also had somebody from out of state show up with a rented FJ cruiser once. Another reason not to buy those vehicles.

There are several options on leasing. You can lease with the intent of turning it back in at the end of the lease. However, you can also lease it with the option to purchase it at the residual value of the lease.

This works quite well when you lease it through the business. It is easier to qualify a vehicle for deduction if it is leased. You can set up the lease with whatever mileage per year you want and then, at the end of the lease, buy it personally.This can have significant financial benefits.

If you do that, then you can modify it however you want. You just have to return it to its original when you turn it in, or buy it. I have bought all of the vehicles I have leased through the busines. Just treated them as my own during the lease because I was buying them anyway.

Hmm...what type of business can I start? This is a good idea, but I need to look into how I run a jeep through it. Maybe an Amsoil dealer...

I can say with 100% certainty, you can lease a Jeep. The one I bought was a 2008 JKU that had been a lease vehicle.

My 03 TJ was a lease, I had a 2" ProComp lift on it six months after I bought it.
I just traded it in when it was time.
