Thanks for the input! Rhino, we used to be thrifty, used cars were the way to go. But then the low financing started and the lure of warranty and not inheriting problems was strong. But on a Jeep? That I'm going to bang up? I'm torn. Locruid, it depends on the dealer
I'm doing research and my Dad and brother are Jeepers, just not around here. I went to our local dealer and talked to a cool woman [I'm one too
] who gave me a lot of advice and an intro to a local Jeep club. She told me to be ready to spend $5K on a lift package.
So, here's the deal, there are two colors I want and neither is in production (Detonator Yellow or Gecko Green). I'm limited to used (obviously). So do I look for one with a lift package on it already? Or does that mean someone has already banged it up.
Detonator Yellow or Gecko Green
4 door as I have two Boy Scouts and we go camping. A lot.
3 pc hard top, it's either 10 below or 80 in January where I live.
Cloth seats, no leather
Max tow package (see Scout camping above)
So that means I need the 3.73 rear axle...can that be changed or do I need that factory?
Here's the Jeep I want if it has what I need:
2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport
I talked to this guy and need to call back with another list of questions compliments of the menfolk. The owner bought it, did one beginner course and said "it's not for me, I like my cars clean." !?!?!? Anyway, it is apparently in really good shape due to strictly highway miles.
