    Default Buying a LARGE Jeep?

    I've searched Suppercarros and six cylinders is the largest that I have been able to find. Nothing with a tow package. Is this due to the new laws?

    My 13 year old Jeep with the big V8 and class IV tow package will need to be replaced soon. She has been a great car but even though she only has 50K miles on her, I'm looking for a new one. I can buy one in Florida with everything that I want for around $42K and shipping is less then $1.5K roro. But then I worry about the "luxury" tax with a large V8, 6 Ltr. engine and all that is needed to tow a 7K lb. loaded trailer and that the car would be new and no miles on it... BUT paid for in total.

    We have been legal residence living in the D.R. for several years.

    I'd rather find a dealer here in the D.R. and pay them rather then having to deal with the importing tax and gratuity problems. (been there and done that a couple of times moving here.)

    Anyone with REAL experience regarding this?

    Thanks.

    NEW Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited with ...... it's loaded but NOT with the largest Hemmie engine that requires premium gas.

    We have really loved our 2000 Jeep GCL but she is showing her years. Towing horses into remote areas I'm thinking a new one.

    Engine is GREAT... it's all the other little things that have me concerned. Our old 13 year old mule has just about 50K miles on her but the life here in the D.R. adds a lot. We did have her re-built in part put little things due to years and climate are creeping in. For a go here or there car, even in nasty conditions... to Jarabaco, Santo Domingo, LT....... NOT a problem and her 4.7 Ltr engine is....... I LOVE her. BUT. Hauling 7000 lbs into the remote areas I've got to stop and remember that she may not be up to that NOR am I up to any problems while loading and going home. So this becomes a matter of comfort zone and at my age, I don't mind being out of it and exploring but ..... when it's time to go .... it's time to go.

    I will be in Santo Domingo tomorrow lining up eye surgery and will be looking around while there. ????? ya... blind man looking at cars should be a hoot. I asked my wife if I could look at breasts via braille while we walked around and I did not get a positive response. Anyway... I'll stop by them and feel around. Thanks.

    Thanks ww. Just PM me with info. The problem with "slightly used" is slightly used where? Like in a flood zone? The D.R. is known for their "slightly used" cars and, sorry....... I want NEW and to my specs.

    I just want to know IF anyone in the D.R. can do this. I can pay the dealer a fair price minus the problems to me OR... I do it myself and have to go a work the process that is not so nice.

    (I might have a very GOOD big Jeep for sale soon.)
