That 995 can go a long way making that Jeep your own.

i would throw 11k down... if i had it lol I only have 4k down and i have to finance the rest

I used to sell cars and understand. You can always get pre financed ( at you r bank or credit union) and then you have more control over negotiations.

2006 TJ Rubicon is the only vehicle I ever owned in forty years that I like more every time I look at it. My Jeep Club has 200 members and we meet at a dealership and I have yet to see another one I like more than mine. Mainly because I have done all the upgrades and maintenance myself, and made it mine.

I also own a Harley and Hog Owners ain't got nothin' on Wranglers for aftermarket and custom parts

It is... The vin and everything match up. I wasn't told that it was in an accident or that it had four owners.

Not to say it is a terrible thing, but definitely make sure it was fixed properly

I drove it and it drove fine and when I saw it in person it looked pretty damn good. If I do get it, I atleast have one hell of a bargaining chip

I know it's a drive from where you're at but there is a place in Belton, Tx called Big Tex AutoPlex. I bought my current wrangler from him and a friend also got his 05 from him. He always has plenty of clean TJ's in stock. Check out his website.

Big Tex

Wanted to mention I'm on a Memorial Day weekend trip to visit family in Austin, TX via Kansas City. I've been viewing Big Tex's website for a few months. They had a nice low mileage Unlimited TJ that I was hoping was still there. No luck.
But met the owner, nice guy, and all of his TJs on the lot were clean. The Unlimited Rubicon with the bumpers was there and is nice! He just put a lift, rubi wheels and Duratracs on. Looks great.
I knew I wanted a JK in the end but had to swing by as Belton was on the way. I wouldn't hesitate to work with these guys if I wanted a TJ.
