Finding a Jeep at all is a PITA. I know what you mean. I've been looking for two months or more.

No finding them is easy.....finding the one at that you like at the price you are happy with is a bitch. I pretty much got sick of searching and payed a bit more than I really wanted for my Rubi but Im happy I dont have to keep searching.

Its funny seeing newer JKs selling for less than I paid but getting a rare Rubi LJ was worth it in my book. I just need to get around to selling my TJ to get rid of a huge chunk of what I owe but its real hard letting go of her.

Put a deposit on the green one I went to just look at. After searching for a while and checking a few out, I actually found a rubicon the exact way I would build it being new.
Natural green pearl paint, grey interior, automatic, dual tops, touch screen nav.

The only thing I dont like is that whoever originally bought it opted to get the steps installed instead of the factory rock rails. Im sure I could someday find a stock pair on the forums or craiglist for cheap.

Oh yea. Someone will upgrade and you'll find a set.
You might check on JKowners forum or ROF either of them may have something.

OR

Get yourself some nice afftermarket rails and be done with it.

Nice lookin rig!

Yes, definitely very nice looking jeep.

Let us know when it becomes yours.

For some reason Rubicons hold their value better than others and are more desirable and as a result are harder to find. Makes me happy to own one and as someone already posted, mine will probably be on the market after they pry it from my cold dead hands. What a rush owning this rig has been since I took delivery in August of 08.

It is hard to find a used that is much under what they cost new here in S. Fl. After a month of looking we went new.

Got pictures?

We like pictures.

I especially like Rubicon pictures.

Show us a few different angles.

Welcome to the club.

I became tired of looking for a silver Rubi myself and settled for a black one. The downside, My silver body parts wouldnt work without a paint job, and black shows every scratch and water droplet I manage to fling onto it. Good luck on the search!

I pass a silver used Rubi twice a day every day at my dealer.. it's sitting right beside a Blue X on the used lot. They are the only two used Wranglers they have..

Silver REALLY hides the scratches and is super easy to keep looking clean. I miss that the most, I just didnt want to drive 500 miles over the color.
