Whay not get a 2005 LJ Rudicon?

New to this so! Found a 2005 LJ Rudicon.89,800 miles.Its at a dealer and looks clean.Reading posts here it looks to have the things that I would need to add to a non-Rub.Has also after market wheels a tires.Look to be 16"x8" with 245/75r16.0e.Auto,inline 6I.
With the tax and plate price will be $16,250

Will be doing some off road,boat pulling,overlanding,general driving.
I would like some input? Thanks for the input! Randall Wefel

Well the 2005-06 LJ Rubicon seems to be the jeep everyone wants, holds its value and its before jeep took out the best engine to ever come out...the i6 lol You won't be disappointed if you are a "jeep" person.

IMO its the best package ever offered. Only down side is that you need to keep an eye on the OPDA. ( Type in OPDA into the search bar and you will get a ton of info). If you are picking it up from a dealer I would just have them pull it with you there and let you check it. Even with that I don't regret my purchase at all and wouldn't hesitate doing it again.

+1 on the OPDA.

I gave up on an LJ Rubi. Every time one came up, it was gone by the time I called on it.

I settled for a standard LJ -- which for the amount of wheeling I do, is more than adequate. I really just wanted the lockers on the Rubi for bad weather.
