2003 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon
5 Speed, Soft Top with tinted windows, full hard doors with tinted windows, Black exterior, Black Interior, 50,100 miles. Cruise Control, Auto dimming mirror with compass and temp. display, AM/FM/CD player.
I purchased this Jeep in December of 2006 with 9700 miles on the clock in stock form. I drove it stock until September of 2008 when I had it lifted. At that point, the Jeep had 31,000 miles on it. It has been to Badlands in Attica Indiana 5 times and to Silver Lake Sand Dunes in Michigan 8 times. Less than 500 off road miles, other than that, all road miles. I prefer to wheel for the scenery and relaxation rather than to tear things up or “see what it can do”. This Jeep is my daily driver and I want to keep it very nice.

At 42,000 miles I installed a Sears Platinum battery and new Spicer U-joints and centering ball in the front drive shaft. I also changed fluids in the front end, rear end, transfer case and transmission. All are Royal Purple Fluids.
At 46,000 miles, I installed new Champion Spark Plugs.
At 48,000 miles, the rear locker failed. I installed an ARB rear locker and the larger air pump so tires can be aired up. While the rear end was apart, all bearings and seals were replaced.
Since I have owned the Jeep, it has only seen two salty winters. By the looks of the Jeep when I bought it, those are the only ones. The paint is in excellent shape with only a few minor branch scuffs from Badlands. Pictures show the paint flaking off the exterior door handles and a very small chip in the passenger side door. A quarter is used for reference. No dents, dings or body work of any kind. The interior is in like new condition including the seats and carpet. While this Jeep is not showroom quality, it is in EXCELLENT condition. Always kept clean and waxed. I get tons of comments all the time about the Jeep. It runs, rides and drives great and has no issues. It is a very well cared for Jeep that has had a lot of time, money and love poured into it.
A hard top is available to the buyer at additional cost. It has tinted windows, rear defrost and rear wiper.
Any questions, feel free to ask.
Kelly Blue Book prices the Jeep at $16,800 Retail and $14,400 Private Party for a stock Jeep.
My price is $16,000.
