A Jeep owner again...

Well, after debating the Overland-Limited-Laredo thing for the last week or so, I saw this Laredo and decided to go take a look at it. I had a friend run the VIN before I went and he said it was a one owner no accidents listed and even showed some dealer service records.

I wasn't sure about the green before I saw it, but when I saw it I really liked it. It needed front rotors, a transmission pan gasket, and the spare tire is missing. Other than that, I couldn't really find any faults. It's very clean inside and out and has the options I wanted most, heated leather and the sunroof as well as infinity audio, dual power seats, the auto-dimming mirror and auto headlights. It's a 4.7 w/ quadradrive and a factory tow package. It's a 2000 with 126k on the clock. It doesn't have a CD player, but I haven't used it in my Altima in months...alot of months since I usually use Pandora radio on my iphone which hooked up very easily with a tape adapter.

So even though it's not exactly what I had set out to get, i'm very very happy with what I got for $4,000 which I thought was a very decent price. My dad manages a repair shop, so the brakes were fixed on the way home for practically nothing. In a few weeks I will go down and change all the fluids, grease her up and take care of any other issues. All in all i'm pretty darn happy with what I got and happy to be a Jeep owner again



I'll try to get a few more pics up later on.

If his drop down info is correct on the side, it is a 2000.

It's in the sig too , but your right I did forget it

Grakee, I don't think i've seen to many of this color around either. It has some metallic in it too. I'm hoping to give her a good cleaning this afternoon and i'll take a pic or two with a real camera, that was from my phone.

Well, I may decide it "needs" tires by the end of the summer....and if i'm going to buy some, they might as well be bigger....and if they are going to be bigger, i'll have to lift her a little so they fit.....

This is how the convo with the wife will start, i'm unsure how it will end
