Over the last few months i been researching my next purchase which is a WK1. Options in my area is very limited and typically marked up high in price so i am going to purchase out of state and been using online buying/browsing resources like car gurus and eBay etc.
Love the color and the miles is what really made me look into this one. Budget is limited to 22,000 plus 20% down which is really not much to work with so if the price is great then i dont see much haggle room for them to go further down.
ahh what to do.

Price seems very high to me. Yes, it is a nice jeep with low miles but it is an 06.. how many miles will you put on it in a year? if it is a DD, you will find a huge depreciation because you would be paying a premium for a low miles car that you will be running up the miles.
I recently purchased an 08 Dec 2012 with just over 50k miles for under 28k.. I did not think I got a steel of a deal.. If you pay anything close to the asking 28.9k plus the shipping you will be upside down...
if your goal is to find a clean low miles wk1 and not worry about the price, then you have nailed it.
Exactly 3 months ago, I got a 2010 with 30,150 miles.. same color, also fully loaded with every single option for $37,995 (no rear DVD because it wasn't offered for 2010, but theres other updates and add-ons that the 2010 has over the 2006). Anyways in my opinion, a car that is that many years older with similar mileage should not be priced only $9,100 less than mine. It should be priced lower than their asking... I would offer quite a bit less than $28,900 for it and see where it gets you. In fact I was able to bid mine down another $600+.
