So I have a kid who will be old enough to drive in a little over a year and keeps hinting about a Jeep. I would really like to find a decent TJ to do a light restoration on over the next year but haven't had much luck with that so far. For no good reason I looked at the local Jeep dealer's site and saw all the used 2017's on their lot. It occurred to me that those are the Jeeps coming back off their 3-year leases. Still pretty expensive for a kid's first vehicle so I probably won't go this way but I realized sometime next year all those 3-year leased 2018 JL's are coming.

Get him a 3.8 JK, no speeding tickets.

A JK around 2012 or 2013 can be had for relatively cheap through private party(16-20k depending) and is really close to a JL if he upgrades down the line. It's nice, practical and old enough to not really care if he beats the hell out of it(not to mention it's a Jeep). Great first vehicle.

Thanks, I've been just casually looking for one here in Vegas and not in a huge hurry. Just haven't seen a deal I can't pass up yet. Might have to expand the search out a little farther. What app are you using there? I couldn't tell.

I have a TJ that I am thinking about selling. It is a 2005 Rocky Mountain Edition. I am in North East San Diego County, worked in Las Vegas the last 10 months of my aviation career. Let me know if you would like the details.

If I could have found a decent TJ with low miles and a frame that was not rusted out for a realistic price, I would not have gotten the JL.

If you are really looking, get a borescope camera from Amazon that hooks to your phone and look inside the frame rails. I love my TJ and still have it. I am just sick of the rust.
