Bought The Arctic - Finally...

Hey... First, thanks to everyone who replied to my other thread regarding trade in value of my 2009 JK.
To update everyone, I was finally able to settle on a trade at a dealer in upstate NY for my 2009 JK (23,500 miles, clean, red rock paint, dual top, yada, yada, yada).. AND... I pulled the trigger on their 2012 JKU Arctic edition!!!
Here's the interesting story (at least to me... ) about the back and forth that went on... I first approached the dealer where I bought my 2009 JK with the possibility of a trade and purchase of their '12 Arctic they had on their lot. I sent them pics, the VIN, milk and cookies, and they came back with a trade in value of $20.5k. Considering the BB value of $20.5 to $25k I said I want at least $22k or forget it. They told me this is a great deal "for me" and I "should be happy with their offer." Despite the condensending attitude, I continued to try to work with them, over the next two days... no budge. Well, I went back and forth with them, with them saying that they can't sell my truck for what I want, bla bla bla.... So in the midst of all of this, my father-in-law has a buddy upstate who called him and told him about another Arctic that popped up on his radar, and that I should check it out. Apparently the Arctic trim is rare these days because it is being overlooked for other models in the Jeep lineup like the call of duty and the rubi... So, I check it out... and to my happy surprise, this one is, IN THE WORDS OF RON WHITE... "LLLOOOAADDDEEDDDD...." 3.73 gears, Nav, remote start, limited slip diff, auto, tow package... all for only $1k more than the other Arctic I was working my nubs to the bone to get. So, I do what anyone who wants this truck would do, I give er a call.. About two hours into the negot. I settle on $21.5k for a trade, and they are throwing in the soft top!

Needless to say, the works with this truck makes me very happy.... Check the pics people...!

Hahaha better then my wait time, it seems that Calgary is completely tapped dry of any Rubicon minus one Call Of Duty 4D at a dealership close to my house. I was informed 6-10 weeks of a wait once I order it, unless they steal one from another delivery. Which wouldn't happen since I am pretty much getting a fully loaded model minus the leather.

But congrats to you and I am envious of your new acquired fun toy.

The black wheels look sweet with the black hood and the blue paint. Is the steering wheel face and vent trim white? or is it camera flash I am seeing?


You gonna have any fun with the first dealership if they call you to see if you are still interested in a deal?
