Good morning, all.
Still hunting for a Jeep Rubicon. The '05 I was going to make an offer on a while back fell through as it was in the process of being sold when I called to make my offer.
I have found two promising prospects and I would like any opinions or thoughts that you folks might have.
They are an '06 with 78,000 miles and an '07 with 93,000 miles. Both are soft top, both on lifts. The '06 is a Rough Country, the '07 is a Smittybilt. The '06 has been used for fairly serious off-roading but the pictures of the undercarriage show it to be in good shape, no rust. The '07 has been highway and the pictures seem to attest to that. Due to the distance from me where these Jeeps are located I can't swing by and look in person so I am praying both parties are as honest as possible. The '07 has power everything, the '06 is not. Prices are close to each other and both well within KBB values.
The Jeep I choose is intended to be for fun drives with the top down here and there, occasional ventures off the beaten path, and a snow vehicle.
With all that being said is either one a significantly better choice than the other?
Your thoughts are, as always, greatly appreciated.
