Just bought it for $8000, guy has all the paper work and I must say I'm rather impressed. I took it upon myself to change ball joints, control arms, brakes, and all that good stuff. the only big hiccup it's had in its past is that the tranny went and when i bought it he gave me the paper work and it's got 50000k left on the warranty for me, so I'm good to go! Can't wait to get her off the jack stands and get cruising. Had her for two days then went to work on all the front end stuff. I'm just itching to go mudding!

Has had a couple of minor problems:

1) DS front wheel well liner was installed incorrectly at factory (forgot fasteners). The day I drove the truck home from the dealer, the liner caught on the tire and tore the liner. It was replaced under warranty.
2) Pirelli tires were junk, so replaced with Nitto Terra Grapplers. I wanted larger tires anyway.
3) Cam phasers are making horrible noise, so they will be replaced next Friday. Took it in before warranty expired, but have been waiting for parts to come in.
