Missed being a Rubicon owner by 10 minutes!

Well I have been teetering back and forth about buying a TJ Rubicon to swap over all my mods onto then sell the 2001. I had the day off from work and came accross a 2004 Rubicon 5spd in black (my dream jeep) for a great price at a stealership about 30 minutes away from me in Mass. I jumped in my Jeep and took the drive up with down payment in hand. I walk in and grab a sales rep to ask to see the jeep just to be pointed in the direction of a guy signing the papers to purchase it.

Well lets just say I was a tad bit disapointed.


I will find one...Im running out of room to store all these dam parts!

I have been keeping my eyes open on all those sites. Hoping to find one within 200 miles though so I can at least take a day trip to look at it first. Plus it doesnt help that Im a tad bit picky.

I have already called every jeep dealer with 75 miles and given them my contact info and exact details of what I am looking for. I just want to get it soon so I can swap everything and install all my other goodies in time for all the meets.

Well when you want a specific model, it's hard to be picky and in a limited area. My last 2 vehicles I bought within a 300 mile range, it's opens more choices if your willing to drive.

For my 03 2500 Ram, I had to drive from NE OH to WV to get it since it was the only one around at the time and with the milage on the truck I was looking for.
