Re: '13 buying advice-worth it?

I bought a 2013 V6 back in November and regret it deeply, mainly due to the 5 speed vs. 8 speed tranny.

I would def. take both the 13 and 14 for a test drive to see what feel you prefer.

Could you elaborate please? It seems to me the door handles would require a complete replacement and is the mirror cap replaceable? If that's the case you are still looking a bit out of pocket to fix it up, of course its a whole nother story if the mirrors are not just 'capped'.


I find myself in a similar position to the TS, 07 with 82k. Except (knock on wood) my retired rental has no issues whatsoever and should give me another 80k easy, besides the stupid aux jack taking a dump on my radio. Reading thread with interest. Probably waiting on the 14 trailhawk for the new trans though.

The chrome mirrors are just a cap.

The mirrors are just capped, and body colored can be bought or you can have the chrome ones painted to match. Also the door handles could be painted to match(that would be the most expensive part to have painted).

If you score a good enough deal you just saved the money to make up the cost of the mods. Also on members on here are always wanting to trade something. Say someone who has a laredo with body colored caps wants the chrome Mirror caps found on the Limited & up models its easy for them to post because a lot of members with those models are wanting to trade caps. Most popular I have seen is a person with a Black Laredo wants the chrome mirror caps off of a Limited, but there is always someone with a Black Overland wanting to trade to rid of some of the chrome. its the most cost effective way!!! and to beat that both members get what they want!

Re: '13 buying advice-worth it?

Per the earlier posts in this thread, a new WK2 2013 at 10% below invoice is a screamer, NFB, steal of the century. Go get some.

Re: '13 buying advice-worth it?

I just closed on a deal for a leftover 2012 V8 Overland for about 15% under invoice. Needless to say I am very happy and enjoying the new ride

You should be pleased, that is an outrageous deal. Wow. So that is circa $35k for a V8 Overland, new?

That's gotta be below cost even with dealer hyper incentives to clear way for the '14's.

Must resist trading in my '11 for a '12 or '13 and swapping over the mods.

Yea even I couldn't believe how low they went (and I set a pretty low cost expectation ).

Ended up getting good value on my 2012 V6 Limited as well that I traded in for the upgrade. Couldn't be more pleased with the whole experience. This new Jeep is better in every way!
