Did I pay to much? (not really important just curious)

In early December I baught my '03 TJ X from a large dealership's used car lot (they sell Dodge, Mercedes, Audi, Porsche, and sometimes a Ferrari or Lamborgini). It was spotless no rust underneath, paint as shiny as when it was new, interior spotless, Suspension was stiff and steering was stiff (i test drove alot of different TJs and most were bouncy, like the body would rock side to side or forward and back, and the steering was sloppy. probally cause they were "rode hard and put away wet") and it had about 58,000 miles on it. I paid right around $15,000 tax title everything. Bluebook was $16,000 so I'm guessing it was a good deal. Just wondering from others experiance if that wa a good price? It also had a 3 month 3,000 mile warranty bumper to bumper warranty from them that would be accepted at any major chrystler dealership.

I forgot its a 4.0L and 5spd manual, Full Doors, Soft Top, factory in-dash cd player, cruise control, 5 speaker w/ factory sub.

You can get a good look at a T-bone by sticking your head up a bull's ass but wouldn't you rather take the butcher's word for it!

Doesn't sound too bad to me. I bought my 2005 X the first part of 2007. She had almost no miles on her. I got the bumper to bumper, 100,000 mile warranty. Gap Insurance too. I paid $21,000 out the door. It's a hardtop, too, which brings a little more. I think you got a decent deal, but it's past that, now. All you can do is enjoy your ride regardless of what you paid....

Yeah I love my wrangler. I have no regret in my purchase, I was just curious what people with more experiance with Wranglers thought on how much I paid.

I posted up pictures awhile back in the TJ picture thread but here are some pics.
When I first got it after the snow started to melt:

Hopefully I'll get some more recent ones, onlything that is new since those is I mounted a 4' Firestik to the rear bumper.

Mine is an 03 sahara. It looked like new and was bone stock. I paid 15900 for it in december of '06. Your price sounds fair to me.
