 Re: 2007 Models Propel Jeep Sales
I think there were lots of folks wanting a wrangler but it did not fit their needs. Now with the new wrangler being more functional and easier as a daily driver for the softies, lol....more are being sold. Ive seen at least 8 on the road in the last couple of weeks and they look good. I guess the folks are paying sticker price cuz ive not been able to work out a deal on an 07 so waiting for incentives which could mean a year or so.....
