I used Meador in Ft worth. Had a great experience. They are a volume dealer. PM me if you want sales guy name that I dealt with. I purchased a 2017 Sahara. My buddy bought one about a month prior to me buying from the same guy

A friend of mine had a good experience at River Oaks Jeep. He doesn't put with BS either.

Bought mine in Ennis when they were Allen Samuels. It's now been bough out by Autonation. My experience wasn't bad, brought my own financing... not sure if all the same staff is there or not. It's been 2 years. They do have about 10 brand new Wranglers on the lot right now.

I can not answer your question but my only advice would be to definitely test drive the Wrangler for a day or so and go on a trip with it that's an hour or so away. I bought my wife a new Wrangler Unlimited in Jan of 2016 and absolutely hated driving the thing except for short trips. The ride is terrible, not enough power, and the fuel mileage isn't good either. A few months ago I traded her Wrangler in on a Grand Cherokee Limited and have been extremely happy since. IMO, the Wranglers are just a fad and is a 3rd vehicle that you do not want to drive everyday. Good luck on your decision and purchase!

As a employee of Moritz and us being a sponsor of TBH, Moritz is a great choice. PM me and I will make sure the deal is as easy as it can be.

Truckville in Sour Lake was a breeze to deal with this past spring. We love our Wrangler Unlimited Sahara...its been to Colorado and Florida, was pleasant both trips. It is NOT the same ride as the Toyota Sequoia that we came out of. But anyone should already be aware of that before even riding in one. I put off getting one for a couple of years. I probably should have stuck to that I'm willing to bet that I'll always have a Jeep in the driveway from now on

We had the same experience. And did the same thing. Wife went to a grand Cherokee overland. We both loved it until she got hit and it was totaled.

I switched to a lifted Tahoe. No desire to go back in a wrangler. However. I'd buy another Grand Cherokee in a second if there was a bolt on 6" lift available.

Going to wire the hoist to a switch on the wall at some point.. too **** hot now.

but also the dreaded stop/start they are putting In all new cars.

Using tye's recommendation above, we picked up our new jku from Meador in fort worth. Never even met the salesman. They delivered and drove my trade back. This is our 3rd jk so momma knew what she was getting into.

The hoist looks awesome! This is our first hard top so I'm going to have to do something similar.
It turned out great!

That hoist idea is genious. I will be doing it this way now. Congrats on the new jeep!

Im in the same voat as hate the jeep. First year or so it was cool.......but its not a nice ride....

We are keeping ours though and she will just get something different. They are capable though for what they were intended......10k in upgrades and youll have a serious vehicle.

Start stop feature is a fail.....i hope i never have anveyicle with it...

Couple brands are already doing it. And in most that I know you can turn it off. In the landrover I know you have to turn it off each time you start the vehicle, it defaults to on each restart.

We did a hoist system in our garage that is based on pulleys and it is the best Jeep accessory you can ask for. Have fun with the new JKU.

simple mod can bypass them and turn them off for good if you don't like them.

myself will be ordering one as soon as the order banks open. really interested to see how they do the power soft top.

I've been thinking pretty hard about getting one since my truck is payed off now. I want something to drive around when it's a day like today, drive to the lease, find some mud holes etc. but man even used ones are pricey. These things gold value good!!
