Not that I was questioning wether or not it is a real Rubicon but the VIN posted belongs to a Rubicon.

Hardtop isn't OE for that year.

That moment when you look at a really nice JK and think to yourself, "Well I SUPPOSE I could see myself trading in my TJ for one of those, but for those ugly ass door handles."

Hate to be a killjoy, but I'd really probe into the low mileage. I don't see anyone buying one and keeping it that long as what is clearly not am off-roading machine, or a drop top toy. For my money, I'd question the actual mileage myself. It clearly appears to be a DD type Jeep, which would invariably have more real miles on it...

It also doesn't have the original tires which is weird with such low miles that it says it has unless they were dry rotted.

The bra and chrome blinkers make it really rare

I listed as rare meaning the miles if legit? Usually inspections now monitor mileage each vehicle check up.Don't know how the home state of said vehicle does inspections?

Yeah, older model hard top added. The Oem Hard top (in dash) switches don't appear to be there. Probably was originally a soft top model.

id be very skeptical if i was looking into it. 15k and it had tires replaced? kinda odd. its a 2nd owner already with that few miles? unlikely that jeep will get 2 owners that are not going to be driving ir pretty regularly or it has some serious issues and was traded in quick and noww the owner is trying ot get aay from it ( saw that happen few times)

I would be more concerned with buying something from a seller with no feedback on eBay. As for the mileage, there are lots of low mileage jeeps parked in garages. My father had a 2002 that sat in storage for years. When he sold it, it had only 9k on the od.
