My cash threshold would be @ R1m but my mental threshold is probably around the R350k mark for a vehicle although I have been very tempted to splash some cash on the odd Hummer H2 that comes up on Autotrader. These go for R500k to R700k, which I could probably justify to Swambo on safety grounds

    So as they say in Poker circles, boys, I'm out.
    yeah we bought our farm in 2003 for R800k, I nearly had a heart attack signing that loan agreement, now you can't buy a small flat for that money

    But we are talking 16 years.

    We bought the JKUS in 2012 for R400k. Back then it was in the mid-range area, just above the Pajero Sport.

    The Paj Sport is now listed @ R580k? So a new JL should be around R600k, R630k for the Rubi.

    R1m is insanity.

    I'd rather buy a Mahindra Thar.

    So I guess nobody here is able to provide a competent review then on a JL then since nobody has one.

    The problem is at this price, you can buy so many other top of the range models. Thinking swb pajero, new prado or v6 amarok depending on type of vehicle. Id like one but this makes no sense

    I was looking last year, but when I realized the price I changed my mind.

    So I sold my '14 Rubi and settled on a' 11 FJ.
    Drives like a couch, goes like a train, and uses WAY less fuel than the 3.6 JK

    A very good decision!

    JL not officially launched in ZA yet?
    Maybe why little or no sales.

    Agree - mentioned pricing insane - is it official or "grootgat" sales talk?

    Launched a few weeks ago.

    It is worth a test drive and puts a smile on ones face just as all Jeeps normally do.

    I test drove the 2 door Rubicon and loved it, but that is just way out of my budget.

    They're trying to shift old stock of the JK. But at the price of the JL, I doubt that is a big issue.

    How many people have run out to buy a discounted JK? Iím not aware of any. Maybe just a sign of the times.

    Okay the cat is out of the bag! I drove the JL today at Constantia (Roodepoort) Jeep where their whole yard is full of them! Wow, wow and wow! I expected the same as my JK Rubicon with new buttons and stuff, but this is a complete new evolution of Wrangler with a new feel! The on road feel is refined with a new level of manners and the 8 speed box is a sharm. This is exactly what one would expected the new Wrangler to be. I would love one!

    They really do drive nicely. I like that 8 speed too much
