GET A JEEP.
I wish i was in your position to look for a new car/jeep/truck. There are some great deals out there right nowit's been fun!
The JK is going back to Chrysler and I'm 99% sure I'm not replacing it. It would cost me more than a want to pay to get the same JK due to the MSRP on my 07 and the MSRP of those on the lots right now. Under lemon law everything goes by MSRP in a replacement. I'm going to do a repurchase. I should end up with a couple grand in hand at the end of it. I may try to work deal with another dealer, we'll see.
I'm also looking at an FJ Cruiser. Still not sold on it either. I'm getting a killer deal on it too, almost 10K off MSRP on a new 08.
What ever happens, I'll be in a 4WD something and hope to meet up with you guys from time to time....damn sure on the trail somewhere.
I've got a few things in the for sale section if your interested...
x2.....u will regret not having a vehicle u can take the top down and doors off.GET A JEEP.
The doors won't bother me too much...I have a 4 year old and I don't have a place to store 4 doors safely...the top will take a little while to get over!!x2.....u will regret not having a vehicle u can take the top down and doors off.
lack of driver abilityI saw an FJ stuck on a fire road here.
My brother has a good line on one...I'm not sold on the FJ yet.I would look for an 05- 06 TJ Unlimited (LJ) Rubicon....Maybe even a Toyota Tacoma 05- 08. I guess the big difference between the Jeep and other vehicles, is going to be the solid axle vs IFS...and the Jeeps ability to have the top and doors off.
...And you won't be allowed to wave to us anymore.
Good luck no matter what you do. Hope you will find a reliable vehicle that you will enjoy for a good price.
I had an 01 TJ when my son was an infant...it was a pain! That's why I have 4 doors now.Just keep in mind that a Toyota Tacoma 4 door will be much more family friendly than the 05-06 Jeep Unlimited 2 door. I loved my TRD 4 door Tacoma. Small enough to park and handle well- but you could comfortably get the family in and out. Very comfortable truck for the size. Pretty convenient to have the extra bed space as well. JMO
