New Jeep!!!!!!!

Bought (paid cash!!) an '18 JKU Freedom in Rhino. We totally love this vehicle. I traded my '13 Land Rover LR4 HSE LUX as part of the deal. You don't really compare the LR4 to the Wrangler as they're totally different vehicles. An interesting history on the JKU Freedom - it was purchased on 12/28/17 from Lustine in Woodbridge, VA then traded at Criswell in Gaithersburg, MD on 1/21/18 with 1,264 miles. We purchased on 2/22/18 for a steal of a price!!

I had an '08 LR3 before the '13 LR4 - I loved them both to death and NEVER had any maintenance/service problems. The problem(s) for me were 1) the fact that if you tore them up off road, it was a bloody fortune to repair and 2) accessorizing them was very, very expensive. Overall, I'd never owned a Jeep Wrangler before and simply wanted to shift from the LR brand (I've owned 3 in total) to the Wrangler. I'm completely/100% happy with the decision and totally love our Freedom Edition!!

I had 188k when I got rid of mine. I had just replaced the air compressor for the 3rd time @ $1,500 each. Replaced all the air suspension components (shocks, compressor, valve blocks and lines) between 100-120k for about $4k. The compressor was first to go then and wasnít about to spend that money again. It was my second as well and loved both. But if I ever get another one it will be new and gone before the warranty is over...... lol

Did you ever find out why the quick-turn in ownership?

They literally wanted a different color...not sure which one (Gobi, Billet, Firecracker, etc.).
