Tis the season for jeeps or "not"

Is it me or does the value of a jeep drop 25% during this time of year. I have bought and sold jeeps over the last 3 years and have noticed that you can really pick em up cheap this time of year and then about march they start bringing a premium compared to december. Of course weather has something to do with it and I live in the great state of Georgia where we have four well defined seasons, but 25% over the course of a three month period seems quite excessive. Has anybody else run into this phenomenon?

With a wrangler it is not a seasonal thing.....it is a regional thing.

Quite the opposite here in the UK. They are commanding high prices at the moment due to the cold weather and selling like hot cakes. I was interested in several Jeeps and by the weekend of them going up for sale, they were sold.

I found a low mileage 2008 JK so snapped the dealers hand off.

I meant to reference wranglers in particular and not just any jeep.
