FWP is the Factory Wholesale Price which is the actual dealer cost minus the dealer holdback. So $100 over FWP is an good deal. But I would also check those numbers, it's pretty easy to calculate based on the invoice prices on Edmunds.
I would be careful with the "extras", they can also become "gotchas". Just know your pricing, invoice vs MSRP.
AFAIK, you can only get skidplates on the TH model. The other models are really only mall crawlers. There are rumblings of 3rd party skid plates but they are going to be a ways off. On top of that, I am not sure whether the non-TH models are going to have the same mount points. I would assume they would but cannot confirm.
The general consensus is go with the 6cyl if you want power, 4cyl if you mileage. The other recommendation is that the 4cyl really sucks above 3,000 feet in elevation. I would test drive engines in your situation.
If I were you, I would look at the KL as a run around vehicle with light off-roading and have some fun modding your XJ for off-roading. If not, I would not trade in the XJ, I would private party sell it.
Makes me feel better about the pricing. Small town in the far northwest area of the Texas panhandle.
He sells Fords. (you remember F
aily or F
ead) Sorry, showing my age again.
Paid $2.70 a gallon to fill up today and felt nostalgic about my dating years when $10 filled the tank, bought two movie tickets, and hamburgers for both me & my date. That was the late 60's! (sorry, two foot of snow, uphill both ways, walking to school. Strings and sticks to play with besides our Tonka Trucks)
Hate malls my self, but still like to cut donuts early in the morning on snowy days in the parking lots. :>)
May have to re-thunk the 4 banger even though I like the gas milage. Live above 3200 ft. right now!
I'll check Edmunds, thanks. I didn't check if his fingers were crossed but best I understood "extras" were his costs.
Never had a Jeep without skid plates, thought is was a unwritten law or something unless it was a 2 X 4.
