Advice please

I Am ready to buy a JK unlimited. I was looking to buy a new one but there are no deals. So I'm looking used. I found a 2010 rubicon JKU 38k miles, 6-speed, hard top, navigation, and a 3" lift. Is $27k a good price? Thanks

I don't think so but my opinion is based on the value of the vehicle itself. I think I coulda almost bought a new Rubicon JK for that money. It wouldn't have Nav, a hardtop or permanent rear seats(U), but, would be new.

When you're paying that much get exactly what you want. I would opt for a 2012+ with the penstar engine. Lots more hp and better mpg too
2001 amber fire cherokee sport 4x4, 2 in lift, 30x9.50 generals, 174 ion wheels, pretty much stock.

Add a few thousand and you get new. Plus if you are trading in you will get more for your trade on a new vehicle. You should get a better interest rate too. You would come out paying slightly more for a new one other than this one after you factor in the 2 things I mentioned.
