Howdy everyone,
Tuesday I found a nice 2006 Wrangler. I have been looking for one for several months. I wanted a 4.0 Rubicon with low miles, no "custom" anything, original wheels, yak, yak, yak. Mission Impossible right?

Well I found one. What a nice jeep. Now I know why I see so many Wranglers on the road.

I am not new to jeeps. Years ago I overhauled/restored a WWII Willys G-503 and a Bantam trailer. I also have a 1966 CJ5 that I overhauled and modified a little. Original 225 oddfire, Brand New SM-420, rebuilt the T-case, put on 11" self adjusting brakes, yudda, yudda.

I currently have a Civilian Bantam trailer to haul stuff in now that I sold my pickup to buy the Rubi. Life is good. I did'nt get a manual with it and have a bunch of question. Looks like a lot of knowledge and experience on this forum and I look forward to exploring it. Best wishes everyone.

Welcome to WF

License to kill gophers by the government of the United Nations. Man, free to kill gophers at will. To kill, you must know your enemy, and in this case my enemy is a varmint. And a varmint will never quit - ever. They're like the Viet Cong - Varmint Cong. So you have to fall back on superior intelligence and superior firepower. And that's all she wrote.
