Drove my new 2012 through a BLINDING rain storm today (had to pull over, 0 visibility).

The Freedom Top or doors did not leak a drop!

Should add that seeing the storm coming on the 730N satellite screen was weird!

And then today I hooked up a chain to a 67' bronco to pull it out of my shop to make room. (I so want to sell the bloody thing but too lazy to post it) For wood working and storing crap for winter. Chain's hooked up to a pintle hook and my step son goes "What the hell do you catch with that thing? I said..."Jeeps".

There is a truck. I have seen two so far, about 49k each. Search zip 32080 and look at palataka, fl inventory. On the jeep site.

It's a kit the dealership can put together for you. Doesn't come from the Jeep factory.

I agree. Just saw an article that said not until at least 2014 if ever! I bet never. They build a good one here in Missoula, Mt. but it cost 40K+ It does have a Hemi in it! Good looking 4 door too.

What do you plan on doing with it? (Will it spend a lot of time off road?)

What size wheels?

I'd say Rubi with 4.10's if you "know" you will be putting larger wheels on it and if you plan on doing any off-roading.

A friend of mine gave me the name of a sales manager from the local Jeep dealer. I stopped by and talked to him this morning, really nice guy. Right from the start he started with pricing of 1% under invoice, I asked him if they would honor the tread lightly discount aswell and he said it wouldn't be a problem. So with pricing set at 2% under invoice we started to build both Jeeps.

For me, I wanted a 2 door Rubicon with Automatic (I commute in a lot of traffic), Dual tops and heated seats. Mine came out to $33,418 including everything sales tax etc. I priced it out using the prices on the first page of this thread and it seems right on the money of under 2% (which is about a $650 discount).

For my wife, she wanted a 4 door Sahara Unlimited, automatic, dual top and heated seats. That came out to $33,594 including everything.

With the pricing squared away he talked to me about financing options and offered a balloon payment financing set at 1.99% for 59 months and $385/month (Rubi) and $381 (Sahara). This payment option gives me a low monthly payment with a balance after 5 years ($12,982 Rubi, $13,387 sahara). The good part of this type of financing is that it keeps my monthly payments low and the ability to pay higher every month when I can afford it and if at the end of the 5 years I can use the Jeep's high residual value to either pay off the remaining balance, refinance or sell the jeep. Obviously my goal is to have it totally paid off within 5 years but its nice to have the option of a lower payment when I can't send a higher payment.

What do you guys think? first of the pricing and second of the financing option that I'm looking at.

I would never finance a vehicle for 5 years regardless of the percentage rate.

Lol. I have enough lol. I was being a smart ass. I put 10k down and financed for 5 years. With the intent to pay off in 2.5 just leaves me room in case "life" decides to happen.

correct, I'm not old enough to have amassed that much of a savings to buy a $30,000 + car in cash. Financing is my only option in order to get a vehicle that I'm still young enough to enjoy. Also, at 1.9% interest its not a bad deal and the low monthly payments still allows me to make higher payments when possible.

You never get too old enough to enjoy. My rule of thumb is 36 months is the max to finance if you need to. Helps you to not get upside down.

I get what your saying Tom but wouldn't it be better to set yourself up with a low monthly payment and make bigger payments whenever you can? Rather than going for a 36 term high payment and face struggling times? I do a lot of freelancing so my income fluctuates and the lowest payment works best. What do you think about the pricing itself? Do you think it's a good deal.

Sure, it can be done that way but human nature being what it is it would be rare if it worked out.
Personally I need the pressure of a deadline to get it done.

I don't believe in financing. If I don't have it, I don't spend it. I saved for my jeep for..well, quite a few years.

I shoot for 0% even if its for only 24-36 months, if longer that's even better. If they don't offer 0% I pay cash. People tend to forget the interest cost when calculating the price of a vehicle, it typically adds thousands of dollars to the price. Now if my investments are getting me more than the interest rate is, then I'll borrow and pay interest, if 0% is not available.

I have an old school way of thinking which has kept me out of trouble, and top tier credit all my life. But that's just how I roll, opinions obviously vary.

Insight

FYI:
Insight is up and running. My status (KZ) was just updated yesterday. On jeep.com/vots only old news.
I read before that Insight was to shut down on 11/12 but i checked it anyway and got the good news yesterday.

Here's the link again:
ndskins.com/vincreate

Hope that helps.
