Re: Are Jeeps that expensive?

We,, the article says that the Jeeps in question are Wranglers - I think this is one of the less expensive models. According to the Web, the highest list price (no discounts) for a Wrangler model is $ 37k. The lowest is $24 K (again, without any discount).

If you can take a $ 37k vehicle apart and sell its stolen, used parts on the black market for a profit of $ 30k, then either you are a Trump-like sales genius, or the buyers are 100% mugs.
