Hello everyone here!
So these past few months I've been researching forums once I'd decided it was long past due time I owned a Jeep. I was very torn between if I'd get an older TJ or a newer JKU, and even got to the point I'd put a deposit down on a JKU through ENCS (military sales).
Funny thing happened - friend of mine who owed me money from selling him a vehicle some time back randomly got ahold of me with a 'proposition'. He'd sell me his 2006 Sport X with 75k miles, which he'd just installed a new lift, wheels/tires (less than 1k miles), custom stereo system, winch, and hard top he'd purchased if I'd pay the difference in what he owed me vs cost of the Jeep. KBB on the Jeep came out to around 16.5k, which can't effectively take into account the mods he just had done... so I agreed on 17k price.
Owed = 12k
Agreed price = 17k
Balance paid = 5k
Total = I own a 2006 TJ title free now. Can't wait to drive her! I'm currently in Afghanistan until Feb, now I just have to figure out transport to get it from Portland to Denver... I don't foresee driving a TJ that far as a very fun trip from my reading....
Here's my new baby!
