Actually, at 40 mpg, it will still take awhile to make up the difference with a $10,000 payment.
On that note, ZX6's are NICE bikes, although I dont really like sport bikes all that much(i like bare touring bikes ), I do really enjoy riding the ZX6s..real nice bike.. congrats, you will love it but just be careful, dont show boat it, and break it in right.
Be safe, and congrats

|Dare2BSquare||Low 40's is a real problem, especially when you were getting about 15 in the jeep!!!|

|1BLKJP||Helluva deal boss. Glad you are keeping your rig. And you'll be able to get what like 40 or 50 mpg with the bike? (At least during the summer. )|

The other thing is, how long have you owned this Jeep? What kind of condition is it in? The reason I ask is that a dealership is not going to give you retail value for your Wrangler. And if you haven't owned it very long, you may still owe more than it's worth as a trade in. Also, if you trade it in, you are going to be purchasing another vehicle, and to beat that $298 payment you are going to have to finance no more than about 13K. What are you going to get that's better than a Wrangler for 13K out the door?
Just something to think about. Personally I think your in about the best situation you could hope for at this point. I don't think a different vehicle is the solution, I think you should be looking at different job prospects to solve your problem.

|daddyjeep||I second the beater idea. I'm driving a '95 lumina that I picked up for $750 so my Jeep can be the toy it was designed for.|

|dos0711||Keep the Jeep and buy a beater to drive back and forth to work.|

|binaryking||Why not try to get another part time job a little closer to home?|

|amerijeep||Sorry Bro. I hate that you have the need to do that.|
|05-03-2007 09:47 PM|
|Dare2BSquare||That jeep would go for about $10k around here. (private party sale) You will get a better idea if you go to kbb.com and put in your zip code and all the equipment on your jeep.|
