Going to buy my first Jeep...Decent deal? What to look for?

I think I am going to buy the wife a Jeep tomorrow and just want to get the thoughts of some experts on here. I know nothing about Jeeps so what should I look for? Does this seem like a decent deal?

Its a 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland 5.7 with 47,000 miles. It's in like new condition inside and out. I think it has every option except for 4wd which is not a huge concern of ours. The tires are the original but already have 4 brand new Firestone Destination ATs for it ready to be put on. Looks like $16,500 is the lowest he will go. Does this sound about right or should I hold out a little longer. Anything to watch out for mechanical wise?

Here are a few pics...

Re: Going to buy my first Jeep...Decent deal? What to look for?

seems like a good deal, where do you live? i used to have a 4X2 jeep and it was one of the biggest mistakes of my life.

Oklahoma. We get 1 or 2 snows per year (although we did get 13" yesterday!!) I have a 4x4 truck so the 2wd is really not a concern at all.

What pieces come in the body kit? He didn't mention adding anything to it.

Hmm..I didn't even realize that was aftermarket. Any reason I should try to find a 2008 or 2009 over the 2007 model? Any major changes?

Sounds like an awesome deal! The no 4wd and color are not ideal, but still minor issues.

Re: Going to buy my first Jeep...Decent deal? What to look for?

Stupid question...was the Overland even available in 2wd? I thought all Overlands were 4x4's. Have you run the VIN#? There's a VIN# decoder someone posted up on here a few days ago that would tell you all the info the build sheet would.

Re: Going to buy my first Jeep...Decent deal? What to look for?

08 is much better than 07 IMO but that is a nice looking jeep. just from personal experience i would stay away from 4x2 jeeps. they become very very heavy sleds really easily. the slightest bit of snow or ice gets them stuck quick.
