Jpatton Dealer think that extras mean that they can jack the price up. The extras don't mean shit when selling a jeep due to the fact that slot if people don't like extras on a used car because they don't know if they were done right. If I was you I would talk them down. Look at the KBB and the NADA values. Print them out and take it to the dealer. Trust me it works I got my 06 rubi unlimited for 13900 with 60000 miles on it. So good luck.

Chavser16 I say go for it....It's a nice looking jeep....I'm digging the front bumper. Jeep prices here in my area, (El Paso, Texas/Las Cruces, New Mexico) the prices are ridiculously high. If that jeep was here at a dealership, it wouldn't last a week. My buddy purchased a 2005 Wrangler X for the same price, and it's bone stock! I know upgrades shouldn't cost more, but damn it sure is convenient at times. Just make sure you follow the advice of others on here....gears, fluids, etc...I purchased my 2004 Rubicon exactly a year ago for 16K even....bone stock as well....Anyway, good luck!

Mile High 4wheeler I say don't buy it unless you get a better deal. My 2003 Wrangler X cost me only $8400 and it only had 88000 miles on it : )

I could probably put it in my garage, I have someone to help me also. I'm thinking about making a rack.

Work4Mud Look at the Kelley Blue Book, see how much over they have it listed for. If its a dealership then id say its a lot over. Plus everybody thinks they are going to get every dollar back for every extra aftermarket part they put in the jeep.
01-02-2011 07:03 PM
Jeepchic70 Check the Kelly Blue Book and take into consideration whether or not it has everything YOU want in your Jeep. My choices for my second Wrangler were very specific. Once I found one that was what I wanted, there was no second thought to it as long as the price was within reason and something I could afford. It's YOUR choice so I voted yes.
01-02-2011 04:58 PM
Jreed08013 I'm thinking about going to talk them down. Does anyone know what the price was of a brand new Wrangler X? Or in 2005 anyway?
01-02-2011 04:37 PM
Avalon786 I vote no! I picked up my 2010 JK 2 Dr 6 spd for $16,000 brand new
01-02-2011 03:36 PM
coolbreeze What I can see looks good. As mentioned, whats it look like underneath? Pics would be good. As far as price, I don't have any idea. The dealer has wiggle room for sure. Good luck

You better figure 450.00 to do a 60,000 mile fluid change on it and a tune-upo from the dealer if its never been done.
Actually the wheel wells are supposed to be black. That's a plastic layer before the tub.

Search And Destroy 8-12 grand is appropriate for that.
01-02-2011 02:39 PM
JKGirl Agree with the others....seems overpriced.

Also those arm rests, are those standard for the 05 if not does anybody know where you can get them?

Good luck with the purchase!
The armrests are aftermarket... Check Qtec, etc for them...

pakman55 I wouldnt be able to sleep at night trying to sell an I4 with 50k for 15,000.

01-02-2011 08:57 AM
pakman55 I'm not sure what's in your area, but around here (MA/NH) that guy is about $2,500 to $3,000 overprice. I think you should hold out for either A) a cheaper price B) One with out all the bells and whistles that will be MUCH cheaper and do only that add ons you want. I believe dealers think that lifted jeeps are automatically worth thousands more
01-02-2011 08:44 AM
WatchThis! I had to vote no also. You can get a 05 rubi for the same price.
01-02-2011 08:39 AM
cru9 Yes for sure check the rear axle try to hold out for the Dana 44 rear axle
01-02-2011 08:32 AM
lukesdiesel I am new to Jeeps but Id stay away from 3.07 Gears and the Dana 35c
01-02-2011 08:23 AM
DiSab I own a 2005 also, and got mine for only $11,000. So i voted no.

Do you have somewhere to store a hard top? And someone to help remove it, or a hoist?

As mentioned, it looks like a decent Jeep. Look underneath it for signs of trail damage, hunks of mud/grass/animal life.... What size are the tires? What rear end does it have? And what gears? I have to say that I did lol at the chrome exhaust tip.... It'll get squashed in a heartbeat if you off road much at all... Check with your lender and find out the loan value on it... Keep in mind that you really shouldn't pay much extra at all for the "upgrades"....

Good luck with your purchase, and don't forget to wave

RatherBNarizona do you have any pictures of the undercarriage? I would shoot for at LEAST two grand less than that. Don't be afraid to walk away from a deal, most managers will run after you and give a better price.
