Just traded my 2013 for a 2013...yup I'm crazy!
 
So I had my 2013 Black V6 Limited about 6 weeks and just traded it in yesterday. I came across a 2013 Black Hemi Limited with Luxury II package and was thinking about making the switch. Well with all the threads on the various engines I must say my V6 was very impressive. I still can't believe how well it pulled such a heavy SUV. Sure it had to downshift a lot but even doing 60-70 on the highway when the gas was pressed it would still pull to 80 with a lot left. Anyway my curiosity and crazy thinking got the best of me, that and I really want the LuxII package from the beginning and was to impatient to wait for one. I must say the Hemi is definitely a little more fun to drive and sounds great! Mpg does suck though! However there's only 26 miles on the dash so it's not even broken in yet.i love the lux package features and so far I'm happy with the decision. Perhaps my impatient thinking got the best of me again with the 2014 refresh around the corner I may have just been able to get into that, however with the prices and rebates now I can't complain and got into the model I wanted for a great price. I got such a great price on my V6 that it helped this trade from really burning me. And I somehow ended up with another black one despite my efforts to get something easier to maintain. I'm my own worst enemy but it does look great when clean. Just threw some blackfire wet diamond on today and its looking good. Well that's it for my rant thought I would share. I have never done something like this and traded in a brand new car after only a few weeks but i think it worked out ok.

You can still trade for a '14 in a few months. :)

Congrats on getting what you really wanted!

And I though I was nuts for trading in a 2001 Limited for a 2002 Limited after 5 months!

Haha the wife thinks I'm crazy. If I told her I was considering the 14's around the corner she may consider calling the shrink. Anyway hopefully this will last longer than a few weeks. Thanks for the support the jeep forums rock.

Not crazy at all. Glad to hear you got what you really wanted. Congrats and Good Luck.

Tell your wife that it would be cheaper to trade up to the MY14 than go to the shrink! BTW did you do the second deal with the same dealer/salesperson?

It was actually a different dealer different person. I got a great deal on the v6 but the inventory was pretty limited. The dealer I got my v8 had mostly all v8s and looked like they had a LOT of inventory and needed to sell some units, that and they had no v6 Limiteds on the lot so that helped my case. Only that would have been better was if I had someone in the household with a lease I could have gotten another $1000 rebate but oh well.

It’s happened with me too. I traded in my v8 silver Overland after 3 month for black v6 Overland with saddle interior. No regrets, I love it.

Happy for all who got the right vehicle. No vehicle trading for me. My wife wants a new house after less than three years in our current home.

Congrats. Keep that economy moving.

I can't say you're crazy, I did the same exact thing with a '12. I traded a V6 Limited after three months for the same color Limited with a Hemi. Glad I did.

Yes, wives can be expensive. That's why mine keeps going to work each morning!
