Good price for 08 JK?

I am thinking about trading my 2001 TJ Sport for a 2008 Jeep Wrangler X. The JK has auto, hardtop and 44,000 miles. Looking at the photos on the dealer web site it looks like it is in grea shape. They are asking $16900. Car fax shows no accidents and one owner.

I am not up on JKs. Is this a good price? Seems low compared to some other 08s I have seen. What are some of the things I should look out for in selecting a JK? Thanks.

JC

That seems like a pretty decent price at least in my area. Look for the normal things you would when looking at a newer vehicle/jeep.

RATS!!! I went to see that 2008 JK, it was beautiful! Great black paint, new tires, etc, AND SOLD!! It was sold the day before I got there! Bummer. Nicest one I have seen. Looking on Cars.com and Autotrader.com and Craigslist I am seeing a wide range of prices for a 2008 but higher priced. The $16990 was at the top of my price limit. Have not seen any other ones like it.

They are out there but as you have seen they sell rather quickly if the price is right. You will probably need to see a JK with a good price that day or it will sell.
