Y'all are pretty much saying the same thing: The Wrangler is a vehicle for True Believers. Nothing wrong with that.
I wasn't even a true believer. I bought my 1999 Sahara in preparation for an upcoming political campaign in order to negate a potential avenue of attack from my opponent. I fully intended to sell it as soon as the election was over. As it turned out, my wife, son, and I all grew quite attached to the TJ- warts and all. We ended up selling our Nissan Pathfinder SE and keeping the Jeep. We have never regretted that decision.

Going to be hard to put a number on that because I believe there are still some 2012s sitting new on dealer lots. Sahara with a couple of options most likely stickered a bit north of $35K?
I'd wait to hear what qbrozen says, but I'll take a stab at $26,500 - $27,000 for a trade in value. Figure this way they can put it on their lot for $31,999 & take $30K.

Actually, this Sahara only has an MSRP of around $31K new. A comparable 2013 goes for almost $32.5 right now due to several price increases since we bought. I was really hoping we could get somewhere around $24K trade-in.

Oh, right. Yours is a 2 door. Every time I play around on the jeep website, I build a 4 door Wrangler. How much do you owe on it? 23K - $24K seems reasonable. Wait to see what qbrozen says.

you guys already hit on it. $23k is about the number. Depending on what you are trading for and the deal to be had on that, you could get close to your 24k number.

Nice. Red, slushbox, standard halogens (which you like from your wife's '09 328i), no NAV/I drive, sport pkg. that'd make a nice road companion for you for the next few years for your job.
I'm wondering if that "Internet price" has been lowered over the last 7 weeks?

Yes. a six speed and Xenons would be perfect, but I can retrofit Euro(non-adaptive) Xenons should I want to. With the '02 on the block and my son taking the X3 to college another autobox in the garage would be nice as my wife can't drive a manual. And I'd still have the ti and Wrangler with three pedals.
According to the Carfax, it's a one owner that has had the oil changed nearly every 3000-6000 miles(!). It also has Comfort Access and Sirius XM in addition to the SP and CWP, so it's actually nicely optioned.
