So today wifey decides she wants an LR4 to replace the X5 (yes first world problems) and she wants the V8. So I find one, 2013 w 5000 miles in a beautiful grey w the black pack (HSE LUX but no HD) call them up already to pull the trigger. Salesman goes to check a few things and comes back and says the owner bought it himself today...F@#*

Oh well. We are on the hunt!

The salesman you talked with didn't happen to sound like Ricky Gervais did he?

'Cause I'm pretty sure the guy we bought ours from at LR Sac could have been his brother.

Thanks, there is a white one with the same set up at the Livermore dealer….but it just doesn't look right. has chrome rims, chrome side steps, it's a 2013 with 6200 miles LUX etc but the Orkney Grey with black pack was sweet. plan is to buy for the wife and then in a few years she will get something new and I will build it up for camping. Literally her words/plan not mine….one of the million reasons I am the luckiest guys in the world.

Hey Chris,

Wanna buy mine? I want a Jeep Brute. HAHAHAHA.

Good call on getting the V8 - and 2013 is a good year. Mine is a 2013 Fuji White Lux, Arabica seats, HD, with black pack, and lots of extras! ::bigsmile::

Really who would want 2? 1 is always more than enough.

Will be on the lookout. There are plenty out there so be patient. HD package would be a nice bonus. LR Rocklin is down the road from me so i could swing by to put eyes on vehicle before you drive up. Let me know. Beaver also has very good connections there.

Give her the CT, Doc. You need some time in something comfortable for once.

My backside is more padded than yours Griff (along with every other inch of me) so my CT is pretty comfy. Also persistence pays off as we are most likely (98% certain) we are going to buy the one pictured. Long story but we have right if first refusal, already have financing cleared/set up, and are going to go drive it today and sign papers. Now in the interim it was sideswiped in a Starbucks' parking lot. Nothing too bad but is getting new door skins and maybe a tag on carfax (which will help us for final pricing). It does not have the HD package but is wired for towing. So when the CT is down (which is hopefully less but currently has a stalling issue from some bad diesel) I will still have a ride!

Good to hear, including the side-swipe. That will definitely help with the deal. I look forward to seeing you and your rugged masculinity sitting comfortably in the lap of lux.

Chris,

Are you getting the black one that the owner "supposedly" bought... or was there a white one you were looking a too?
