How many do you want? I did a broad search in the phoenix area 50+ miles in any direction, using years 2008-2009 as a parameter and came up with 21 different to choose from. The very first one in fact is an '08 that has pretty much everything your looking for:
[QUOTE=chuckerants;15260641]Thanks Jason for that. Seriously, I used Autotrader, Craigslist, and Cars.com though not cars.com in a while.
The first 08 does look perfect, even the mileage and the color. What do you think about the price?
Think about it - 5 year old vehicle with only 31K on the clock. I would absolutely get a vehicle history report, but beyond that I think the pricing is ok. I would go for around $23500 +/-. It has everything except HID and QDII from what I can tell from the photos.
Thats about what I paid for my a year ago, although mine is a CRD.
I work at a dealer and we just got an 08 Limited Black with the two tone interior. It is very loaded out and even had the HIDs! I would take it home if I had the budget. It only has 60k miles on the clock. We sell cars across the country all the time. If you can't find a good one in your area maybe we can work something out getting this thing to ya.
Buy an '04 Limited instead. Those Hemis get horrible gas mileage.
Still get a V8, granted a 4.7 but its plenty, and QD-II is easily found on limiteds.
I've got one and love it.
Hemis can get better mileage if you drive within the MDS parameters though it is still a V8 so you can't expect much. Also who are we kidding Hemis are too much fun not to have play with! The WK can be equipped with the same 4.7L that came in the WJ and gets maybe 1 mpg better than a Hemi. The WJ with it being lighter can get maybe 2 mpg better than a Hemi but you only get a 4 speed trans.
I would stay away from a 4.7 simply because of reliability and nearly no aftermarket support what so ever for motor performance parts. The 4.7 is extremely sensitive to neglect and cheap oil. I have seen way too many blown 4.7s to ever risk having one for a daily driver/weekend warrior. Also you have to be careful picking the right 4.7 since it came in two variants, the standard version and the High Output. The High Output is the only one worth anything. The standard is only good if you like having the mileage of a V8 but the performance of only slightly better than the 4.0L.
If I was going for a WJ I would get a 4.0L straight 6 and pull the motor and do a 4.6 or 4.7 stroker kit and get almost the same horsepower out of a lighter motor!
