Expensive but very nice 40k 5.9

http://edmonton.kijiji.ca/c-cars-veh...AdIdZ524824330


I was just about to leave for the bank when I saw the rubber cup holder insert was missing

Nicest 5.9 I've seen in a while . Nicer than the one asking 15 on ebay a while back

Good selection in my neck of the woods right now

That's right, and if you change the k to an m, just think how fast it'll go!

I found this one that I thought was expensive, but now seems cheap in comparison...

I'd buy it if they went down to 6 (and lived closer to Hotlanta)

Dealers are always overpriced though

That's not bad IMO .

Considering the original cost and low K , I'd buy this before buying a used 06-10 with the same k . Quality is not in the new jeeps like the good ol' 5.9 had . Dodge is not a favorite for me since buying the 11 Ram Sport at 29 K , the torque convertor , rear diff , t-case , AC , rear sliding window , door alignment , and a few things I am forgetting , have been replaced , rebuilt , repaired or adjusted . That 5.9 has probably seen only oil changes and a tune up .

That said , I didn't win last night's lotto so it's still up for grabs

16.5 and the guy says he has 5 jeeps. is that you Newfie?

maybe he'll sell the 408 stroker instead.

too bad, if it was even semi reasonable in price i would have made a trip to edmonton........ but theres no point in even opening negotiations with a fella like that. he needs to sell to 'thin the herd'? he won't be thinnin the herd for a while..............

plus its white. yuck.

Unless it's had a full restoration, anything rubber (bushings, seals, weather strip, etc) is still 13+ years old. Unless it lives in a vacuum sealed garage, you'll have $20k wrapped up in it in no time.

The price is clearly set so that only somebody who thinks 5.9's are collectors items will buy it. The reality is its just another 15 year old SUV with low miles. Book value somewhere in the $6k range.
