2019 Rubicon
Can't help you much, but I just bought a new 2019 Jeep JL Unlimited Rubicon with MSRP of 55,200 for 46,300 + TTL in So Cal. Just bought it on Saturday. So I would say you might be able to buy a new one for 3-4k more.

Not quite apples-to-apples, but my 2020 loaded Rubi (no painted top/silly roof) was $49,900. So, for $6k more (no small change, I get it) I got dual tops, proximity entry, steel bumpers, color matched fenders and 8 miles on the odometer. The options alone are $4,500ish, so $1,500 more for no miles and 2 MYs newer? You should go about $2k lower on that used rig, and not a penny more.

p.s.- it has a CD player listed. I, um, I am dubious...also, the Rubi doesn't have LSD, though it does have brake-lock stability control. Typical dealer crap. Like listing the Cold Weather Package separately from remote start or heated seats, even though that's what the CWP is, or listing the backup camera as an option, even though they're federally mandated. God, I hate 99% of all dealerships. :devil:

And this is why I ordered and bought brand new. The used ones hold their value so well, that for an additional 3-4 k, you get a brand new one with almost zero miles and the full use of the factory warranty,.
