    You can find hundreds of low mileage JKs for a decent price around here now that the JLs are out. I would skip out on that one. The folks around here are very willing to help you wrench on your Jeep to get it where you want it.

    Andy5160 -- primary reason is price, despite the trouble of getting it shipped.

    bmkrinne -- sound advice there. Appreciate it.

    Sounds like I'll pass on this JKUR and look for someting local or at least closeby so I could take it for a spin.

    Thanks everyone for chiming in!

    Ha! For 13K I'd pick it up and replace the frame! Probably not, but just saying.

    They're asking for $24,999 BTW. I thought it was a great price for a 2012 JKUR with 51K miles. Decided not to buy it because of work and time involved in getting it home (about 1200 miles from where I live).

    Here's a link to the vehicle, if anyone close by is interested in buying it - https://www.cars.com/vehicledetail/d...t&CMP=atempest

    Thanks for chiming in, Clutch!

    Thank you, tastethebeast! Yup, I've waited for a year (to save up $$s), will wait a few more months to pick up a JKUR. Exactly my thoughts reg. JK prices w.r.t JL coming out. But I didn't see any major price reduction happening as of yet. Perhaps waiting a few more months will help I'm guessing.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
