Thought it would be a JK, now a change of plans (XJ)
I sold my 2007 JK Unlimited 2 years ago to get something more commuter friendly for school (2011 Chevy Cruze Eco). Anyways, I found myself missing the jeep and posted my cruze on swap-a-lease with plans to get a JK. I found someone to take over my lease fairly quickly, but then there was a twist... My apartment flooded forcing the gf and I to move out. Now we are sickened by the idea of renting, so we plan to save for a down payment on a house. So, I decided taking out a loan on a new JK might not be the brightest idea right now. Turns out, my buddy is selling his 1999 Cherokee Sport, stock/clean, with 164k on it for $2500. He's willing to sell it to me for $2000 which sounds like a fair deal to me on a clean xj. I will definitley be putting a small lift on it, and it needs tires anyway so tires too. I figure even though its temporary (still want my jk next year) it will be a fun, cheap alternative to get me through the next year. How does this deal sound? I like the idea of buying from someone i know, even though I think there are better deals to be had on craigslist. I can post pictures later.
