What to do found a deal?

I just bought a 2000 tj with a 4 cylinder. It is currently getting a tranny rebuild. I was farting around today and found a 99 tj with a 6 cylinder and rubicon rims and tires and only 96k miles for 4600. I don't really have the money to buy it but was thinking of getting it anyway. My wife just told me go ahead and buy it. Might have to go get a small loan. Don't know if I should or not. The 2000 is a 4 with an auto. The 99 is a 6 with a stick. Just what I wanted in the first place but they were to overpriced. Man I need 2 jeeps!

Dude, your wife told you to go ahead and buy it... What other sign do you need. Sounds to me like you just got yourself another Jeep!! If anything though, after you got the 99', I'd sell the 00' if don't want to have to repay a loan. Just my .02

I am crunching the money right now to see. I have 2k sitting here. I just have to see about the other 2600. I guess I might have to go test drive it and go from there.

paint the 6cyl down the road and you can try and talk him down on the price but that price is extremly low

Do it. I bought a 4 banger 97 and about a month later I found the 6 cyl 97 like I had been looking for. Wife said buy, it, I jumped on it pronto before she changed her mind. Selling the 4 cyl now.

If the wife says do it then do it..... you don't want to give her the chance to say "you never listen to me"

Yeah, the bad news is she has given her two cents worth. If she drives the 4 banger and hates the power she will let you know every Sunday dinner. My wife loves the shifting so better watch that too.
Good Luck

Funny thing is, my jeep is purple and when i first got it it had pink pin strips all over it. Needless to say they got removed pretty quick. But im not complaining some old lady had it until she died so it was babied!

They say nothing. I haven't drove it yet. It looks good. I think they just need something else. I don't want to get a loan but it might take a few days for me to get the whole amount. I just bought 2 cars or I'd have enough. Oh and bought a gun too lol. I wish I would have known before I spent most of my cash. Well see what happens.

That jeep sold before I could even get there. I guess that great deal wasn't for me. Oh well I guess the savings account will stay good for a while.
