Thanks JD, my Uncle suggested since I have to make a payment to look at newer Jeeps. Like an 06 or 07, less miles and probably better shape. I will give him some time to see what he comes up with it.

That's a thought to, but I am sure there has to be some legal mumbo jumbo to go through since I have a monthly payment.

depending on where/how you financed the car you should be able to roll the loan over to the new vehicle (Jeep)

Yes that is the plan, but the car needs to be paid off first so they get the title. Then the new loan for the Jeep is created plus and unfortunately whatever the amount is you are upside down on, gets tacked onto the loan.
That's the bad part and no fault of the dealership, they will only give me so much for the car. Naturally they need to make a profit on the sale of the car, so essentially I will probably have a loan the same amount when I first bought the Jeep, which is affordable. I will deal with the gas somehow, maybe get a part time job which I was planning to do to help out with the house expenses.

That's funny, because believe it or not that thought crossed my mind. (What if gas goes back to $4 a gallon?) I hate to admit this, but one thing about my Focus, it has great gas mileage.
Trust me it stings to see people with the top down and doorless while I am driving my girly mobile, but that car goes about 350 miles before I have to fill it.

And I also know I am contradicting myself from my previous reply to plac, but I guess turning 50 and seeing my friend in the Nursing Home, has changed my way of thinking a bit.

JOEMD60--Hang in there. I had to give my first baby up for a freakin' minivan. Yes, a minivan. I cried when my baby was sold and drooled for another for 7 years. Now that my kids are driving, I dropped that minivan like a bad habit and found my new baby. Fits like an old glove and I have totally erased all the minivan ick from me.

I feel your pain completely. But, as you said, you can always find a new baby later. Keep on waving! And stay on here and get your "Jeep fix" this way until you can drive another Jeep!

So today I had a strange experience and I am somewhat freaked out by it. When I drive home, I sometimes take the route past a local Jeep Dealership. After hours there is nobody there. So I like to walk around and look at the new Wranglers, today was one of those days when I on a whim decided to go there.
At first I was reluctant because they were still opened, but something compelled me to pull in.
So as I start to leave, I do the usual pull around the back of the building to see what might be sitting there for used Wranglers.
Nothing, but then further back something caught my eye. There was a black Wrangler sitting there, as I got closer I could not believe what I was seeing!
It was my old girl sitting there like she was waiting for me, and probably what compelled me to pull in!!!!
The last dealer changed the wheels and tires on it, they are now stock wheels and tires. But it does not matter, they can be changed down the road.
I grabbed a dealer, and told him the story and he was freaked out because that never happened to him before.
I asked if it was possible for me to get it back? When he came outside, the bad news was, it is on the way to the auction.
He says they want to put on a new soft top and airbox and they also have to warranty it. I asked if there is anyway it can be stopped, that's my Jeep?!
So he asked if I can wait until tomorrow when the sales manager will be in, that will be when I will have the answers I want.
The next sticking point for me is what a fair price for it would be? It's an 04 Sport with 55,000 miles on it, all stock, body in good condition, no rot. Any ideas guys, so I know what to work with?
What's so strange about this whole story is, I was leaving brunch with my Family. It was a late birthday celebration, so when I blew out the candles on the cake. My wish was to get my old wrangler back, nothing is in stone, and everything hinges on what the sales manager says. Let's keep our fingers crossed, thanks.

Ok, first I got goosebumps, then I got big tears in my eyes.

You and I have a couple of stories that run similarly.
Please let me urge you to call and leave a voicemail for the sales manager and go tape a note to the window. That way everyone will KNOW you want to buy it.

Another thing, if they are planning to send it to auction, then they are selling it there at a wholesale cost. Just because you want it badly, this might be an opportunity for you to get it back at a very reasonable price.
As far as the changes they want to make, sounds like a way for them to hike up the price. If they are things you think you'd want, then let them do it for a reasonable price but if not, then tell them you'll buy it as is/where is without a warranty.

Think with your head... looks like your heart already found it's way.
BUT don't let the slack out of the recovery strap, or they may load it on a truck!

I will keep my fingers crossed for you, good luck sweetie!

Hey Kate, listen dear I am no girly man by any means. But I would be lying to you if I did not get a little choked up whan I saw my Jeep again, it was like it was mean't to be.
You were also reading my mind, no sooner than I got this post. I was on the phone with the salesman, I asked him not to let that Jeep go to the auction until we sit and go over the numbers.
I said, I would be willing to buy the Jeep without a warranty and replacing the other items, if I could get it at auction price.
Thanks Kate for the well wishes, I appreciate it.

I hope the salesman does, he says he is calling his sales manager tonight. So after work tomorrow, I will head over to the Dealership and hope he kept his word.
I also have to work with my head when it comes to numbers and not letting them strap me into paying more than I should.

Joe, you are in my prayers. I so want this to work out for you. I can't think of anything that would make me happier right now than to know that you got your baby back. Well, maybe winning the lottery. Let us know.

Got my fingers crossed for ya

I feel ya completely... I bought my wife a $3K minivan last year and got her truck in trade, which I traded in on a '10 JK RHD (funny thing, but after having that truck for 6 years, it didn't bother me in the least to see it go), and for the past 8 months my wife has been telling me to sell my '71, because I don't drive it or work on it or anything, and as much as it makes sense to let it go, the thought horrifies me

It's a DJ... a postal jeep. Can't buy parts, so I had to build/fabricate/modify almost the entire thing. Dash, wiring, engine, body armor, I built all of it from scratch. Sure I can do the same thing to the new one (I already started...), but the old one is MINE!

Oh yes... I definitely feel for ya.

Thanks aelwero, what scares me is losing it again. I just checked KBB and the Jeep in excellant condition still retails for 15K.

Yea, no kidding. I've had this cross my mind several times today.

I'm all nervous and stuff.

I'd like to be all concerned for ya - really I would - but all my available brain cells (the ones I didn't kill in the 70s and 80s) are currently occupied worrying about other stuff. If a few open up I'll try to fit you in.

Kidding man. I hope you get it.

Well the wait is over, and it is all over. The Dealership will not budge, if they take my trade then they want 12,500 for it. That is too much, I am upside down with my loan on this car. That is why I put the brakes on my Uncle finding me an 06 and up.
I would end up having to roll about 3K from what I would owe on my car into the new loan. I am not comfortable with having a 16K plus loan on anything.
So I am sticking to my original plan, which will be to drive this car for about a year until I pay it down some then look for a used Jeep for about 5K. Sorry to disappoint anyone.

Joe, although I'm sure you are disappointed, I think you probably made the responsible decision. Good things come to those who wait . . . and all that crap.

I know deep down I did, even though it hurt like hell to drive out of there without my Jeep. But I was always taught, that sometimes in life, you have to make difficult sacrifices.

And all that crap.

You're going to need to make addtional payments if that's your plan. The first year you will be pretty much just making interest payments. After one year you will still owe almost the original cost of the car.

With the exception of the loan on the Jeep, I am paying extra on the car and it will be paid off in two years
