20k even (thanks previous poster for your advice! I like even numbers too)....had them add the towing package in with the deal....it has one of the 'easy order groups' on it....don't remember the name of it but included on/off road tires, gas shocks etc, as stated before had the infinity upgrade and power convenience group, it's an automatic 4x4....financing was 5.1ish through a local credit union that my dealership works with for 60 months (excellent credit helped but that angle may have been able to been worked some more, not sure)....a bit more then the 4.84 offered through BOA but enabled me to get the 1k additional off to make it the 20k......has 1 year of sirius as well.....
I'm happy with my deal....it was at Bob Frensley near Nashville, Tennessee. 1k on trade in (it was a hunk of junk, lucky to get that, 2000 Ford Windstar with 120k miles and some mechanical issues), 6k down and my payments came to about 284 a month...I did really have to work with them, shop around, and let them know I was buying a Jeep 'today' at the best deal I could find and had to push them lower through 4 rounds of negotiation. I went in to the dealership with research and printouts 'in hand'....referenced them often.
I hope this information helps somebody. Best of luck to everyone shopping!
Most important thing..I LOVE my jeep!!!
#560 of 710 08 unlimited base w/hardtop
Mar 25, 2009 (6:13 am)
been researching and looking for over a week now! went from grand cherokee x with lthr heated seats etc. been looking at that type of suv for a little more comfort level in the cold winters thinking it would be worth the higher payments. i drove a 09 unltd base w/hardtop, manual and LOVED it! Actually got excited, i'm worried though about the winters and the manual locks and windows. price is 18k compared to x cherokee at 28K. Any advice? is this a good price for the very base unlimited? Thanks. (can't seem to get all the rebates with an upgraded power 09)

This is an amazing deal! I got them down to $20,168 for the base (no power windows, soft top, no power locks) which is not a good deal at all.
If you don't mind helping me,
Did your 2008 come with the lifetime powertrain?
What "research and print outs in hand" did you have?
Do you know what exactly they did to lower the price? Like incentives, rebates etc? THANKS!

I agree, great deal its making me question my deal of 18k for my base w/hardtop.
my rebates were: emp pricing 1900, then 4250- rebates. My dealer says he can't take any more off employee pricing so i might wait to see if the rebates on the 2009 models improve next month to step up to the power pkg.

What rebates were they offering you that added up to 4250 and is it an automatic 4x4? At least yours included a freedom hard top!
I have a 06 Commander that I was going to trade in and I just found some dealers offer "buyer loyalty" so I am going try that route too. Basically, I love my commander but it is depreciating fast and would only trade it in on a Wrangler Unlimited. Right now the deals that they are offering me are "good" but not "great". It suprises me because you look at Dodge slashing prices and competitors like Chevy and Ford who are too... and you are telling me that the employee ++ from jeep is less than 2 grand? Come on Jeep (not to mention, Chrysler employees still get another $1,000 off)
The thing that irratates me the most is when dealers say "well we may have a couple $500 coupons left but they are in limited supply." Why dont they just say "Well, I know we have room to play on the price, let me check with my manager to see if we can drop the price."

its a manual - rebates were the two listed on the web for 09's and a 1k financing and i'm not sure if the other is because its an 08 or a dealership rebate. I'm still deciding if i should wait for better rebates for 09 to get the x. good luck!

don't feel bad about losing out on that 20k 08 unltd with power - i think i'm going to have to go w/a 09 (less rebatesand no more 08's except in yellow) so 09 x w/power, fog, alarm and dual tops for 24k. so price diff. ends up about the same as yours (2,600 diff between base and power pack, 1,500 for dual tops). have fun driving!

Sorry for the delay in answering, I've been out of town.
Yes, it came with the lifetime powertrain warranty and 3 year standard warranty as well.
I had printouts from sites like this with people quoting prices they had gotten. I also pulled printouts from yahoo cars etc with great deals, even if they weren't 'exactly local'...I would, in fact, drive a couple of hundred of miles to save a couple of thousand dollars etc....
I am not sure what they did to lower the price, but I do know they were very motivated because it was a 2008 and 'said' they lost money on it. (Who knows if that is really true, I sure don't know.)
Again, sorry for the delay in responding. Good luck!
#567 of 710 09 Wrangler X 2 dr
Apr 07, 2009 (3:22 pm)
Just bought an 09 Wrangler X 2 door automatic w/24S package, hard top, power conv group, anti slip differential, sirrus sat radio and deep tinted windows. MSRP was $27090 and got it for $19500 plus 3yr 0% interest. We feel like we got a good deal. Took a lot of calls and negotiating to dealers locally and in nearby states but it paid off in the pocketbook.
Love'n my Jeep, now it's time to play and accessorize!!!!
