Have you ever wondered why people buy things that they have no idea on what it was built for, or they may know but they will never use it the way it was made for .....
back when Chevy went to IFS fronts, trucks were dirt cheap... females loved them & because they sat up high & they could see, but it also rode like a typical car & during this time we'd never thought a a truck would be reaching over 40,000 now
< not ranting on females sorry> the big 3 found a knich & went hay wire with it.... you buy a truck & they is atleast a 10000 dollar mark up fee from the invoice to the MSRP you see
my rant is toward the Rubicon.... great rig... truely awesome, Jeep finally got there head out of the dark side between there legs & made something truely unique & trail worthy, without worries
take a look at the Tj Section," Well its here"
< shaken head> just like when the PT Cruiser came out... the dealers wanted 2500 Deposit & they also charged more than the Msrp, because they could because everyone & there brother was buying them....
now that the Rubicon has came out, people are droping over 30 Grand for them..... & i'll lay $ on that they probably dont have a clue on what it was intended for.... they just say Oh cool, fairly aggressive tires, cool little Rubicon sticker on the hood... but hey what are these front & rear diff lock lights in the dash for...
I guess that ole saying Jeeps are Built not bought stands stronger for me.....
I'm sorry guys & gals, its stupid SH*T like this that drives the supply & demand skyward & allowing the dealers to charge whatever they seem fit on the prices..... all because they can & they know they'll get it
My only problem with all this.... people that truely want one to use in the way it was built for, but sitting in a lower tax bracket than someone else, couldnt have a fighting chance to actually buying one
you know if they killed all the stupid ignorant Pukes in the world we'd have about half the population we do now LMAO
I guess thats what its like to have more $$$$ than Common sense
sorry guys... this maybe the wrong forum for this... but like that other post about the Wrangler VS Grand Cherokee Forum...
i couldnt resist & wanted to know if theres anymore of you that feel the same way i do about this whole situation ?
its not that i'm trying to buy a Rubicon or anything.... but i'd like to atleast see the things used wheeling instead of pounding the pavement like a Guppy
my deal, if you want a jeep... & its your first one... GET A X , or SPORT... & build it to get you around in the Northern country where ya get alot of snow... not a top of the line, loaded to the hilt.. just so i can drive it down the highway & never see dirt, or a pile of rocks
off my soap box... have a great day
