Do you guys know if the 14s can be ordered yet? According to this you can but I don't think it's credible.

LeasePlan - 2013 Order Cutoff Dates & 2014 Start-up Dates
Some have had orders placed for six weeks. Production began a few weeks ago and 2014's are definitely starting to show up. All the dealers I have scanned with Wranglers "In Transit" are 2014's.

6Speed it is... I was never active on L4P. The guys who started that are a little goofy for me.

It sounds good... but rarely the case. And when you add the hassle-factor of a private sale, it turns against you in a hurry. It works best for vehicles at the lower end of the price point, but even then it's not the greatest.

Indiana has a sales tax of 7%. So right off the bat, you have to sell your vehicle privately for at least 7% more than the trade offer just to BREAK EVEN. If you're lucky and find a cash buyer willing to give you full price for your vehicle, by the time to calculate the actual profits, it's not more than a couple of hundred dollars on the average $20K vehicle. Factor in the time involved placing ads, answering phone calls, getting your title, filling out the bill of sale...etc. and waiting for days/weeks or more. It just gets to thin for the effort involved. Oh, and after the sale maybe you don't have a means of transportation until your next purchase...

And then!... and this is very true, the smokin' deal that the dealer had on the vehicle you wanted vanished overnight, which again will eat up the profits.

Like many things, everybody has an opinion but when I'm in the notion of getting a new car... I want it NOW. And when I find the deal I'm looking for, I make it right then. Delays will usually cost me.

The only way to finance a used vehicle is to buy it from a dealer. So unless a person happens across a buyer with a ton of cash, cars at this price point can really sit in a private party sale.

Also, you'll get a sales tax credit when you trade the vehicle in and once over 23k, you are talking about a $2,000+ credit. That makes trading it in a good deal if you can get close to your private party sale price. The big drawback is having to negotiate two numbers at the dealer.

I just financed a used private party 2012 sahara much like the one the op is selling through my credit union, and it was further complicated since they seller had it financed as well. You just have to shop around to find a bank that is experienced in handling those kind of loan originations. My main credit union wanted to make it much more of a hassle than it needed to be, so I spoke with a different credit union and they handled it within 24hrs no problem. It takes a little cooperation from the seller to make it go smoothly, but it can be pretty painless if your bank is comfortable with it.

I want a diesel really badly as well, but I don't want to wait until the 2016s (now rumors that it might be the 18s!!!. Also, the redesign will surely make all my parts completely worthless, and I'll be stuck with the hassle of selling a mountain of parts. I guess I'll trade in again for a diesel in 2017
