Hello All, long time lurker first time poster. Been browsing this forum for the past few months as I've been saving for a new Wrangler. Seems like a friendly, knowledgeable group here.
So down to it. I open the paper today and see that a local dealer is selling a stock 2013 JK, Billet Silver for 17.9k. While it isn't my first color choice, and it is missing the 3.73 gearing, it seems like way too sweet of a deal to pass up.
Is this a good deal? Do these deals pop up more often than I realize, or should I jump on it?
Also would a stock, manual soft top lose too much in resale value? Still not sure if it's too good to be true, being almost 5k off retail.
I'd probably end up doing that, something I'd be willing to bite the bullet on if I'm saving money up front. Just hoping it's not a ploy by the dealer to get me there and try to shove a fully loaded Rubicon down my throat..
Cool thanks for the advice guys. I ended up picking one up for 18k before tax and fees (gotta love my local 9.9 sales tax..). Bone stock 2013 JK Manual in Billet Silver. Wheels and 33's already picked out!
Haha I'll get them up soon, the one I bought was still in transit. Should be here on Wednesday.
Little worried that I'll regret not getting the 3.73s as I do a lot of camping in the mountains during the summer (jeep is gonna be packed!), but with the money I saved I guess it won't be too big of a deal to regear. Amazing how few of the JKs on the lot had that gearing though.
Thanks Reece. I'm definitely gonna wait it out. For my needs it should be fine; light off-road use and logging trails. I think reading some of the 3.21 vs 3.73 threads just brings back memories of the Isuzu Amigo I drove in high school haha. Whopping 100hp or whatever it was.
