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

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!!!!

I have just recently been contemplating buying a 09 Wrangler Unlimited. That 19500 price sounds good, I guess that was the Employee Pricing Plus Plus deal??? My question is should I buy one now if I get a really good deal or wait till the 2010's come out as I am not in a real big hurry to buy, Sometimes I feel that buying a new vehicle this late in the model year seems to make the depreciation value worse.
Any thoughts anyone.

................... I am not in a real big hurry to buy, Sometimes I feel that buying a new vehicle this late in the model year seems to make the depreciation value worse.
Unless there were changes during a model year, an early build and a late build will depreciate equally.
Buying last year's model can be a gamble though, unless you get a really good price or intend to keep it for ten years.
For you, now is probably a good time to buy as you obviously have no time pressure and can afford to look around and compare deals.

mac24, thanks your response. I think I am going to start checking with some dealers tomorrow and if the deal looks right i may jump. If not I can wait till the 2010's come out. Just wasn't sure if the deals out there now are that good to make me but an 09 now.

I too am in the same situation. Thinking of waiting for 2010's but wondering about deals and prices between now and then. I have a couple of prices that seem a little too high. An 08 4X4 Unlimited X (fairly well equipped (a/t and power pkg) for little under 24K and an 09 similarly equipped for about 26500. Hoping for a better deal.
