I should probably start with I am a FCA employee. I've owned 3 Wranglers total. My first was a '97 Sahara 2.5L I4 5sp, my second was a '04 Sport 4.0L I6 Eletric Green, and now I leased a bare bones (only options are a/c, anti-slip diff, and a hardtop) and I don't regret leasing at all. I ended up trading in the electric green with 197k and got 6k for it. Got a check back for 4k, our 2k forward the lease and with my FCA discount I lease for a little over $300/mo. I should also mentioned our GM was on vacation and the actual dealer owners took like $3000 off MSRP which on Wranglers is usual MSRP or look for a used one, at least in PA. Regardless I don't regret leasing the JL and I will probably snag a JT when they roll off trucks in April/May.
