Help with Purchase

I want an automatic 6 cyl. This is a 2nd car I'll use to run down to some land I have, so I don't need a new one. My question is should I get the 4 speed they came out with in 2003 or will the 3 speed work fine? Here is one I found on eBay that is a 2001 model.

Any help will be appreciated, especially if you've driven both the 3 and 4 speed automatics.

It's still there. I clicked on the link and it says it's removed but it isn't.

What do you think a good price for the '01 on eBay is? KBB and Edmunds are far apart. KBB (Retail) is $12,385 and Edmunds is $10,303.

Depends on the area it's in. In some state's-area's jeep's go for way more $$ then other places. I would not spend no more then 10500 for the 01. But then again I would NEVER buy from a dealer. I buy all my cars/trucks from original owners. That's just me. When I decide what I want, I wait and look untill I find it. Some folks just can't wait.
