Used Car of the Day: Please Take This 2014 Jeep Wrangler Off Road

You may have noticed the site has been quiet today, but never fear, content is coming. As you wait for more Chicago Auto Show and news stories, feast your eyes on this fairly pristine 2014 Jeep Wrangler and get it dirty.

It has 68,000 miles, the 3.6-liter V6 engine, an automatic transmission, and what look like off-road-ready tires but the seller says it's never been off pavement. You wouldn't know it to look at it, though -- not only are the tires ready for rock crawling but there's a bar in front of the grille, tow hooks, a winch, and more.

For $23,500 this Connecticut-based (for now) Jeep could be yours. If you plunk down the cash, please take it off road.

Take a closer look here.

    It needs to see some of our logging trails here, at least.

    So our erstwhile Jeep owner has an "S" model which I think is base, and Cialis Motors will start the base price on an MY23 at $30,2. Then if we factor in the fact the subprime bank of choice would rather do business with the Chrysler dealer and a new model (yes, Jeeps are frequently subprime), then realize interest on an nine MY old example is going to be bonkers even from a credit union... yeah, crack is whack dude. Just take it to the dealer for a direct sale and my guess is it will pull $18s-low 20s because Wrangler.

    Before we leave this, let's examine the actual post.

    Prestine [sic], absolute MINT condition, garage kept 2014 Jeep Wrangler S.


    Fully modified with the best made in the USA aftermarket parts.

    Which are...?

    No smoking, no pets, no accidents, clean Carfax (which I have).

    I hope its clean for all the money.

    Have original owner’s manual, two keys & Jeep toolkit (allen keys) for removing the hard top.

    Needless details.

    Never took of off pavement & has been my weekend driver.

    Who weekends a Jeep, a Wrangler no less, on pavement? Daily sure whatever but weekend/Sunday car 4x4 and we don't go off road at all? Really?

    Only selling because I want a pickup for a side business. Cash or certified cashiers check. Serious inquiries only.

    So why are you not trading on a pickup? Do you somehow think the Mad Max world of used pickups is somehow a better solution for someone who can get at least 18K in hand?

    The color is Dune.

    The spice must flow.

    Have all records & zero issues with it. Will throw in original halogen headlights and original grill.

    Oh ok, so best USA aftermarket parts are brighter halogen bulbs and a custom grille? How about the winch and roo bar, are they not included? Jeep people like anyone into customization can get into the nitty gritty with their updates and changes, yet seller does not outside of headlights and alluding to a grille.

    Go to the dealer, pass go and collect $18,000-$20,000 dollars.

    "The 2023 Jeep Wrangler has a starting price of $30,295 for two-door models and $34,165 for four-door models, which is fairly high for a compact SUV. The midrange Sahara trim starts at $44,320, but the range-topping Rubicon 392 model has a lofty $79,995 [!!!] MSRP. [emphasis mine]"

    The owner probably got the off-road mods to look “tough”.

      Many jeep owners do modify them just for the looks- I know this for a fact, having read many of them complain about the poor road manners resulting from a lift and large tires and admitting that they just think it looks “cool”- but I don’t see the connection between that and hiding inner homosexuality. Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar… sometimes people just think stuff looks cool so they spend their money on it, stuff like 37” tires and big steel bumpers and winches. [full disclosure: I own a four year old Rubicon jeep which is so capable off-road that I haven’t needed to modify it; I just enjoy taking it off-road and driving around without doors or a roof. But what do I know? Maybe Analoggrotto knows more about my sexuality than me.]

    No, no, no; you all have it all wrong. My cousin's 15yo daughter announced she wants a "Jeep to take to the beach; Momma I can take it to college too!" I just laughed when I heard that. Laughing harder I reminded my cousin she had a 914 in high school. More 1st world problems.
