I've sort of given up on the Unlimited Rubicon idea. I won't be doing any real serious rock crawling and the tire noise will drive me crazy. After a couple of test drives in Rubicons, listening to the tires singing, I remembered that I has tires like that on my old Toyota 4X4 and the best thing I ever did with that truck was get quiter tires.
Anyhow, I am now looking at Wrangler Unlimiteds. I got a price on one with the following options (if I remember correctly)
24H option package
Leather wrapped steering wheel
Upgraded sound system - 7 speakers
Sport model wih 5 spoke alloy wheels
A few others that I can't remember
The price including NJ tax, tags, etc. came to just $26,855. That with a $1000 dealer rebate, $1000 rebate for financing, and $500 for retired military, plus their own $1450 discount.
So the deal is just under $27K. Is that a good price? The dealer claims that it is $500 over their cost (not invoice).
What do you think?
