NEED OPINIONS on JEEP 4 SALE

Hey everyone, Just wanted opinions on this Jeep that I'm seriously considering on buying. I currently drive a '92 Laredo, love it to death and has been great to me, but now almost being 22 years old and going to be a senior in college, it's time to upgrade (I want airbags and A/C!!! haha). We are hopefully going to look at it this weekend and today i'm going to see what kind of loan I can take out for it (poor college kid lol)

Now to the important stuff. 2006 Jeep GC Laredo, ~84,000 miles, asking $11,500 (said he'd take off $500 for tires).

First, here's the link.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...ht_1226wt_1101

Second, from the pics, the tires are obviously bald, so he is taking $500 off the price. It sucks that he doesn't have more pics, but from the ones provided, it does look like it's in good shape and pretty clean.

A buddy at a dealership is checking the Carfax as I type this and I will update the thread when he gets back to me.

I found a way to find the exact window sticker for this Jeep when it was on the lot, and here it is. Got some pretty good custom add-ons it seems.

http://www.jeep.com/hostc/getWindowS...HR48N46C294987

Black is the color I want, it's a 4.7, sunroof, leather seats, Aux input, etc. There's nothing that I initially wanted on my new Jeep that this one doesn't have. I've wanted a new Jeep since I left for college, 3 years ago, and have researched ever since.

I'm thinking about offering $10,500 and see what he says. If he says no, then if everything checks out, i'd do the $11,000.

What does everyone think? I appreciate ALL opinions. And what type of things specifically should I check out when looking/driving it?

Thank you everyone!

- Joseph

Re: NEED OPINIONS on JEEP 4 SALE

If everything checks out I'd say it's good to go.

I'd have to see it in person and look it over to be sure though.

Re: NEED OPINIONS on JEEP 4 SALE

That why I'm hoping we can check it out this weekend. It's about 2 hours away from me, and we have to go through Chicago traffic, so a weekday is out of the question haha. But my dad and myself are very good to our toys. Everything is kept in great condition and my dad will literally check every nut and bolt of this Jeep!

I agree. Good luck!

Joseph, how did you get the original window sticker from Jeep.com? I can't find that on there website, even after registering my vin.

Re: NEED OPINIONS on JEEP 4 SALE

That link that I put, just replace your VIN at the end. I tried doing it with my '92, but no luck, probably because it's so old haha. But hopefully it will work for you.

Didn't work for either of my Jeeps. Where did you get that link? Maybe I'll email Jeep and see what they say.

That's the thread that I found it on, but it's just the same link that I posted and you put your VIN at the end. So maybe contact that user who initially posted it? Its on the 1st page

Re: NEED OPINIONS on JEEP 4 SALE

I would ask for 750 off for tires. 500 wont put tires on it. Otherwise it looks REALLY NICE!

Re: NEED OPINIONS on JEEP 4 SALE

for that price, if everything checks out, even the 11,5 would be a good deal.
