Anyone in Dallas Texas?

I've been looking real hard for a nice TJ. Something in good cosmetic shape that my daughter won't be embarrassed to be dropped off at school in. Unfortunately in the Northeast a nice Jeep is a difficult find. Rust buckets and back country beaters are a dime a dozen around here but the combination of good looks, clean frame, and moderate miles is rare.

From my web searches I have stumbled across Collins Brothers Jeep in Dallas (actually just north of Dallas). Their Jeeps look good in pictures, and even though they cost a bit I would be willing to pay more for a better TJ. Does anyone have any experience with them? As stupid as it sounds I'm actually thinking about buying from them and having the Jeep shipped to Pennsylvania. A roll of the dice it would be.

Tom

There are a few Jeep specific dealers around here. Collins is one of them.

Thank you for those links my friend. I'd love to find a place like those closer to me but unfortunately that's just not happening

I see their prices. Not cheap at all but it may be a "get what you pay for" thing. Right now I'm driving all over, 2 - 4 hours one way to look at TJ's in "OMG EXCELLENT!" condition that are just not that. And I'm not getting any younger

Well sir, I can only suggest you find the one your interested in and call them and ask questions were you have concerns, I'm sure they will send you pics if you ask, and yes, your gonna pay for the low mileage one's, I can tell you my buddy had a brake line leaking at the master cylinder when he got his home and they covered the cost of repair.
Could be a epic road trip for you and your daughter, fly out and drive back.

No problem. If I come across any more, I'll post them up.

Never been to Collins Brothers but he figures in the Discovery show Fast N Loud. He also has a You Tube posting on Fridays called coffee walk. He walks through his shop showing what they are working on. He has shown some beautiful resto mods they gave done.

He's also a used parts supplier. I've gotten a windshield for a Wagoneer from him, and picked up a set of factory wheels for my TJ (Canyons) at $40 a piece.
