I mean, are people really paying $9000 for a 10 year old stock Jeep with 100,000+ miles? I'm sort of curious as to what the rest of you are paying , or expect to pay for said jeep with 90 to 100k miles? Thanks for the input.
You should look out of area. I drove to Maryland to get mine, I paid 19k out the door for a 05 Rubicon with 11,000 miles. It was brand new.

05 TJ X...bought it in August of 07 with 6500 miles. 5 brand new BFG all terrains, MT Classic II wheels, and bushwacker flares for $18K. The dealer had it listed for $19,500, dealt w/ them for less than an hour, and had my jeep!

Should always haggle with cars...just do your homework. With used vehicles especially, there's generally a lot of mark up/profit to be made by the dealer. But there's also a lot of lee way to get the price down. Research is your friend.

tried to buy an 07 JK with 8500 miles on it 5 months ago... they didn't want to come down. went back to the dealership today and tried again... they wanted to give me the same deal... i walked away again. this time, one manager gave me the price of 23500 and the final manager said 26900. my walking was justified, i think.
