I am west Houston, just outside the beltway!
Today was my lucky day, clearing a financing hurdle. Now, I just need to find the Jeep within my price range and pay cash out the door (to the dealer it seems).
It looks like Jeeps come like this:
2-door - X, Sahara, and Rubicon
4-door (called the Unlimited) - X, Sahara, and Rubicon
It sounds like to me that the X is the base model, the one I want. I really don't want the more advanced features of the Sahara like the stereo system or video stuff, or the off-road capability of the Rubi. My use is mainly in the city, pulling a light travel trailer, and greenlaning on rough roads, but no rock-crawling or butte-climbing
. I don't want to tear up my Jeep, explain why I have dents in my roll bar, and would rather other off-roading buyers be able to buy a Rubi rather than hogging it and not using it for what it's designed for. That's like refusing to sell a CJ7 just sitting behind the house, and buyers want to save it before it rusts into the ground. Oh, and comfort be damned; I have a Scout II.
I'm reading an older brochure online and comparing the features.
Any suggestions would be awesome. I'm going through the forum in the next several days or weeks to learn as much as I can.
