Re: Jeep Hurricane Concept Vehicle - I want one!!
The regular Rubicon has come down considerably. Not sure if the list price has, but the selling price sure has. The dealer told a friend he could get one for more than $5000 less than I paid. But then, I got one shortly after they first came out so I expected such. $31,000 +.
The Unlimited Rubicon starts about there now, but since they aren't "going like hotcakes," I'd bet soon you'll be able to get a really good deal on one.
My justification to myself when I bought mine was all the "extra goodies" like bigger T-case and gears, 44's, selectable lockers etc would cost about the same as if I just bought a new TJ and put all that on myself. But I didn't have all the work to do it!
But even then, it needs to be finished - needs tires/wheels, suspension, heavy tire carrier, skid plates, etc., another $6-8 K.
I have yet to wheel with an unlimited -- very curious as to how that extra 10" of wheelbase works out. Bet sometimes great, sometimes a pain. But I know for sure the extra interior room would be handy - unless it's used to put too much weight in.
That concept car has some neat possibilities. Two motors, sounds like it may even eventually be a hybrid electric.
