New member seeking some advice

Hey. Im new to this thread today and i joined because im currently in the market for a new Jeep. My current jeep is a 98 Jeep Cherokee LTD with a 2.5inch rough country lift and 32in tires. It has a lot of problems and instead of paying close to 2000$ in repairs i figured it would be better to cut my losses and go looking for a new jeep. Today i went and looked at what i thought was a 03 Rubicon but im pretty sure it is just a sport (It has the rubicon stickers on it but when i got there the dealer sticker said 03 sport and they go by the vin.) The sport has 55,000 miles on it and it is in very good condition other than a small scrape on the front right bumper and a small dent next to it. Its pretty much stock other than a K&N air filter, a head unit and bazooka tube in the back. The dealer is asking 13,997 but i talked him down to 12,997 and i think i can get him to go lower if i keep pushing it. I was just wondering if you guys think this is a good deal im getting or if i should look for something cheaper. any help is appreciated. Thanks Guys!

I paid 14,500 for my 05 lj with 50k so 12,997 is not to bad, maybe get on kbb and also shop around to compare prices. I browsed craigslist and autotrader for like a year before i got my jeep so i knew how much everything was worth.

Just looked on KBB and in excellent condition its listed as 16,500 so i guess im getting a pretty good deal. The only thing that worries me is it has 5 previous owners however 3 of them were dealerships apparently. Anyways im going to take another look at the car on Saturday and hopefully ill be driving it off the lot and taking some pics to post on here.
