Also notice the reporter says it is a 2008 Wrangler "just like this one"; as she's standing next to a JK8....So frustrating lol

25k for a 2008 wrangler? I wonder how much my 10 would go for up there? Thats more than I paid for mine brand new.

It isn't just up there. I've been poking around on the net looking for an 07-09 for a project vehicle and there are people out there asking $50k for these. Yes, they are modded, but you don't get back every dime you put into it when you sell. Usually, you get nothing from it and at best maybe 25-30% of your investment.

The whole reason we bought new was because it only cost us about $2k more than what used comparable models were listed for to do so, and we have a warranty. I just don't understand the used Jeep market at all.

were they doing two stories in one?
1. The dealership robbing a customer buy selling them a 08 Wrangler for 25K... That was that was close to the MSRP when new. Unless it was loaded and modded out.
2. The second story someone stealing from a dealer, blind sided just like they do the customers... LOL...
