Hi, my names Mike and I'm a Jeep Virgin. I'm a Pisces, my hobbies include camping off the beaten path, motorcycle riding (adventure riding) and most other outdoor activities.
So anyway, i'm looking to get a jeep. You've read the thread a 1000 times i'm sure, so if this thread bugs you please ignore it, but if you can stand to read another "Should I Get This" thread then I would love your opinions.
I am looking at a 2009 Jeep Rubicon Unlimited. It has about 36,000 miles on it. It looks to have a lift on it, but not sure of the make or size. It has Pro-Comp Xtreme AT's in 35x13.5R20, they look to be brand new. Not sure of the rims. It has a winch on it not sure of the make or model. The vehicle is in very good condition, not dents just a couple scratches. It's at a dealership, they want $30,000 for it.
Everything I have been able to find in my area is right around $26k to $28k for a used stock rubicon. This one is more expensive but it already has the lift/tires/winch, and I love the color..
I'm not really looking to buy new, cause it would cost me well over $40k to get what I want. This will be a mostly weekend warrior rig, along with a little bit of around town stuff (I ride all year round, and we have 2 other vehicles)
(can't get my pic to show up but here it is.)
So my questions are.. Be nice I'm a noob.
1. Is this a good deal?
2. Are the tire and rim combo worth a damn or are they just Pimp style?
3. How do I determine the brand and size of lift it has by looking?
4. Anything I should be specifically checking for.
Thanks for the help
