I'm a new member to the forum/Jeep world. Just caught the bug this summer after a mudding excursion/vacation in Maine. I am considering my first Jeep purchase, and found one that 'looks' nice/seems like a good deal, but I wanted to get some expert opinion...
Here are some specs from the listing:
2007 Jeep Wrangler X
URL to listing/view: http://tinyurl.com/cdmpfpe
It looks fairly clean/nice, and Carfax looks clean. I did hear from the dealer, and she told me this vehicle was a one-owner ("clean cut military guy" as she described), garage kept, used as a 'fun' vehicle, but never used for off-road (that they could tell) or towing. Owner traded it to get another 'fun' smaller/vehicle (VW GTI). It has aftermarket tires (not sure brand wheel/tire), but also the stock tires/wheels would be part of sale.
I haven't been to see the vehicle yet (2 hours south of me in Sanford, FL), but if worth a look, I may go Friday to check it out/test drive. I will have a trade-in (2002 Mitsu Montero Sport/86K+ miles) as well.
Any opinions on if this is worth the trip to look at further, based on year/condition/mileage?
As far as what I'm looking for/what I would use it for...
...basically a daily driver, though I work at home, so would only really use on weekends mostly. Don't really care if manual or auto. Want a soft-top. I'm not looking to do any off-roading, though driving on the sand/beach would probably happen occasionally. Most miles would come from around town, with occasional short trips, but nothing beyond a couple hours most likely.
Thanks for any input!
