I can't believe some of the deals you guys get. Around here $5k will buy you one in terrible condition with 150k+ miles. I paid $8500 for an 03 overland with 80k miles and it's as clean as as a whistle and I feel like I got a deal. This was after refusing to pay $10500 for an 03 overland from the dealer which only had 60k miles but was in very rough/neglected shape. The dealer sold his the same day I passed on it.
Paid $1550 for my 00 JGC limited with 167k all I had to do was flip tires around because the guy liked curbs on the passenger side and the tire looked like a full white wall, and I had to buy seat covers drivers seat is pretty bad
2000 WJ 4.7 QT2
3" IRO w/ quick disconnects, 265/75/R16, Fender Trim
03 Laredo 4.0, paid $5,000. 115,000 miles on the clock. Was a California Jeep so it had no rust underneath. Has given me no problems since buying it back in October 2010. Heres a photo from the stealership and a current photo.
Almost two years ago I paid $8k for my black '04 Overland with 139k miles. It has zero rust and now has 164k on it and runs great. It's almost mint, everything works, even the cd changer, it's my favorite vehicle I've owned so far. It was a one lady owner, just before I bought it, she hit a deer, so the hood, front fenders, lights, radiator, hydraulic cooling fan, bumper, were all replaced with brand new parts. Paint match is perfect. Extremely happy with my WJ. It does need tires now and I'm having a hard time deciding in what AT to get....
I had to tow it home (3 hour trip each way) as nobody was available to go with me.
