My search for a Wrangler continues. While I'm not in love with the 2.5L, for my intended purpose as basically a spring/summer/fall weekend cruiser it would do the trick. More importantly, the wife is more on board with the SE prices we see.
I've had my eye on this one, and the price has been steadily declining:
Based on KBB, the price seems okay, but working off Edmunds it still seems really high. It has a crate motor with approx. 8K on it, but if I recall correctly from previous ads, everything else has between 125-130K.
Ultimately the question becomes, how much value does the newer motor add (if any), and how close is this to a fair price? I can't help but feel like maybe they overpaid initially, and now they're trying to recoup some of that.
Your feedback is greatly appreciated!
I'm starting to feel like I'm analyzing these to death, and that maybe my "perfect" deal just isn't out there.
