Newbie here

I am a potential Jeep buyer here and I have been looking at a 2006 Wrangler X with 57xxx miles, and the dealership is asking 14,999. I feel like its a little high and I asked them if they could upgrade it with some aftermarket parts (which they said they could do in lieu of lowering the price) anyways my question is: Is this a good model of Jeep? I plan to use it as a DD and maybe some light trails, no crawling for me... Thanks for your time and I look forward to your responses!

Welcome to the Forum Dan Actually that price is pretty much in line with dealer pricing. I own an 06 Unlimited. It is my daily driver and I love it. 06 was the last year of the TJ model.

For a daily driver, sure. And don't be afraid to bust the dealerships balls for the sale. Times are hard and the automotive industry has been hit hard. As a former auto salesperson, a bit of advice. Find the Jeep you want to buy, talk money, waste as much of the salesperson's time as possible, then tell him you want to check out other dealerships. Make sure he has your contact info and wait for him to call you, he will. Then meet up with him, and repeat this process until you get a really good deal. You'll be surprised what he'll do if he thinks he has a chance for a sale. Good luck.

Thanks for the quick responses! I also wonder what diff. will be best. My friend has a jeep and he raves about the Dana 44, and this one doesn't have it. Also, what gearing is a good "all purpose" gearing? My friend said to steer away from the 3.08.
