Wow that’s like half of what I was quoted. Would you mind PM the paperwork so I can see it and maybe get the dealer to not try to scam me. They quoted me almost $600 on a lease of a final price rubicon at 48k.I ended up leasing! I pay 380 a month for 42 months with 15k a year
Ya we wanted to lease for lower payment and buy it out at end like we did with our 2013 JK. Dealer was giving 22k trade on a 2dr loaded freedom Ed. So I would have $10k to go towards the new RUBI.Maybe look at a sport s lease?
I traded them my 2017 Subaru crosstrek as my money down, had 3k in equity in it.
$319/ 39/ 12k
Do you plan on keeping the Rubi at end of lease? Leasing for lower payments?
Do you plan to use a leased Rubi off road? terrible idea, hopefully I don't need to tell you why.
I will most likely buy out my JLU sport S lease, but I made sure the buyout was reasonable, which it is.
give the JLU to my wife, and hopefully I am in a financial situation to finance my 2dr Rubi
I leased a 2018 JL Unlimited Sport S for 39 months 15k miles per yr for 2.5k down @ $490 per month. My residual is 26K and the sticker price was 40k I would love to buy this car out after the lease do you think it will be worth the 26K or would you recommend getting a newer model at that time?But what is your residual buy out,...mines still 39k after 36 months at 680. Which is a joke
Wait and see. See what else is out there at the time and balance that against the value of your off-lease vehicle at that time. No Ned to decide now—- just enjoy your Jeep for the next three years and worry about what happens then later!I leased a 2018 JL Unlimited Sport S for 39 months 15k miles per yr for 2.5k down @ $490 per month.

It's all in the money factor. Although Wrangler has really high residuals especially with a Sport and Sport S, the money factor is ridiculous compared to the examples you've mentioned.My JLUS stickered at $47,800(ish). After discounts and $0 down, my lease is $475 for 48mos, 10k miles per year, and a $30,500(ish) buyout. That math means I’ll end up paying $53,300 for a Jeep that had a $44k-$45k negotiated price at sale. NOT - at all - a good deal. To put that in perspective, I leased a new Mercedes that stickered $50k and cost $49,400 between lease payments and buyout option (after some good discounts but still), and I leased a $45k’ish sticker Lexus for a total cost of $46k’ish after buyout and total lease payments. This JL is thousands worse off than either deal.
Unfortunately for me, I ordered my Jeep in November 2017 (pre-production) and didn’t get it delivered until Feb 2018. I had been waiting five months by the time my JLUS was built and delivered. I also had my family (two little kids included) with me when purchasing. The dealership had a lot of situational leverage ha. I took the deal as soon as they lowered the payments to something “reasonable” so my wife could get the kids home for bed. I “normally” would not have done such a lopsided deal.
I would think long and hard before leasing a Wrangler instead of buying it. They don’t lease well (at all) to begin with and, in most cases, people get a wrangler with a desire to off-road/customize. Neither goes well with leasing. Even though mine is a lease with a 50/50 shot of being kept long term, I’ve put $500 into mods. Makes no financial sense whatsoever ha.
Unless you’re a low mileage driver, the JL is your long term absolute dream car, and a lease is the only way you can make the payments work, I would look at more practical/financially sound options. If the JL is your forever dream car, then I suppose the “wasted” money is an ends to a means when the lease option is needed.
