Got a Rubicon

Yesterday I traded my 06 TJ for an 07 JK Unlimited Rubicon. I like it a lot better than my TJ: the room, the ride, the wheeling potential. It has a little over 21,000 miles and it was priced at just a little more than my 06 X was a year and a half ago. It was advertised for $22400. I was worried that there was something wrong with it because around my area most used Unlimited Rubicons are around $30,000.
It has side step bars on it, but the stock rock rails came with it. I am thinking of putting them back on. Would you?
It does not have a soft top, so I will now be on the hunt for one that's priced good. I have found a couple on Craigslist. What would be a resonable price for a complete soft top? I have seen some listed for between $7-800. I have to get one because I love to drive around topless in the summer and I think the hard top will be too much of a pita to keep taking off and putting on.
I have a picture of it off of the dealers web site. I will get some of my own on here sometime today.

I agree with Lev. Nix those nerf bars.

Congratulations! I hope you two have a long life together That is a really good deal it sounds like. We drove an '07 rubi w/63k and they wanted $20k and wouldn't budge and it was beat to death....

Waiting for pics, good luck finding a top!

I agree, sell the steps and the rock rails, the rails are strong, but

If you look into all the sliders that are offered, they almost all can be used as steps, by adding 3m non-skid tape, mine are pretty kewl and you can get as fancy as you want

These are Olympic and they offer lots of models

Good luck

Here she is, but until Memorial Day weekend, this is as far off-road as I can go. (no legal place to wheel near me) I know it needs a lift and bigger tires, but it will have to wait till the tires on it are in need of replacement. Then I am thinking 4" lift w/35s. One thing I do need to get right away is a hitch reciever.

I have a lot of questions about it, but I will do some searching before asking.
