Best to order them on line, but they're still around $150 (a ripoff) on there. Once in a while you may find a sale on them too. There are also bootleg copies floating around, if you're into that. Whatever you do, don't go to the stealer for one. They'd probably want $500 for it.

Just upgrade your head unit to an MYGIG RHR! I retrofitted a low speed RER like 8 months ago into my 2005 WK HEMI but upgraded to a low speed RHR because it has a lot of improved features, better maps than the REC and most important to me at least it has wireless Bluetooth music streaming!

Just to keep this updated it eat drove the 06 last night and it was a bad ride. AC didn't work was the first thing I noticed, it blew warm air no matter the setting. Next, I shifted into reverse to back out of the spot and there was no problem then going to drive took about 5 seconds before the shift was made which was a big clunk. Also, the brakes squeezed pretty badly and looked like none of them had much life left. Overall, a no go on the sale.

Luckily I'm looking at a dark green 05 limited with less miles (82k). All the same features as the one I just looked at just less miles. Any opinions in the dark green? Initially, I wasn't a fan but I think it's growing on me.

Who cares about the color as long as it runs better than that other one.

Color has some weight on the deal haha. But unfortunately, it sold today. Bad luck I guess. I'll continue my search

Well I love mine so much I would drive it even if it was multicolored. Luckily it is a nice beryl green.

Looked at another Jeep today, a really clean 2005 with the 5.7 L Hemi. It's a bright red color and has all the same features as the other one that sold. It has just under 100k on the clock and is going pretty cheap so I may move on it. Only flaw on it was the chrome trim piece on the back bumper was popped out and I couldn't get it back in. He is putting 4 new tires on it and inspecting it tomorrow so hopefully I can mine sold and buy it! Man the HEMI is so much more fun than the 4.0L!

I though the price was very low on this Jeep. It's a 2005 limited with quadra drive II and the 5.7 L Hemi. It has EVERY option I believe - NAV, rear DVD, tow hooks, chrome wheels, sunroof, adjustable pedals, memory seats and mirrors, tow package, heated seats, I assume the premium sound system, etc, etc. Just under 100k miles and the body is nearly perfect with brand new tires. They're selling it for 8500 cash. The only rust I saw underneath was on the metal prices that extended next to the spare tire and attached to the rear bumper cover (not sure what they're called) but it was only surface rust which I expect for a PA vehicle.

Holy **** if you don't buy it, I will! Did you drive it? Did you check the engine bay, door jambs, etc? May be hidden issues. Also check the lift gate area it's prone to rust.

Drove it about 12 miles and it seemed really strong. A little big of noise from the rear drivers side, I assume a suspension issue which isn't a big deal. Checked under all doors And lift gate as well as rockers, etc. engine bay was just cleaned so it was hard to tell much of anything really but they hasn't even serviced it yet and the oil was fresh looking. It has had ALL services done at a local dealer

Sorry to revive this old thread but I didn't end up buying that one due to a sketchy carfax. Selling my WJ tomorrow morning and going to get my black 2005 WK limited 4.7l on Saturday! The jeep is immaculate and has 91k miles. Found it for 8500 which I believe is a good deal. Has all the nice features except for NAV. Any advice on the newer 4.7?
