Re: Are Jeeps that expensive?

Yes, they are that expensive. The used parts trade is huge, which is why a lot of automobiles are parted out after being stolen. A Jeep can be disassembled quite easily. Plus the parts may be sold as "new" if it's from the current model. And many of these pavement-only Jeeps are in, in fact, like new condition.
