So, like an idiot, I headed on over to the local Jeep dealer this afternoon "just to take a look" at what they had in stock (I should preface this by saying that I will be relocating back home to Upstate NY, and was going to order a 2012 JKU after starting my first "real" job upon finishing my fellowship this June in Virginia).
Of course, they have a jeep that has everything I want (23S, connectivity, manual trans, infinity stereo, soft top). The salesman was very nice, and certainly not pushy. Even brought me a 2011 Wrangler brochure (aka Jeep Porn) to take home.
Crap. Looks like I may be headed back this week to see what they'll give me on a trade.
