Can't FInd a Good Rubi!

I was bidding on this Rubi but it may be another fraudulent listing, as I pulled a carfax on it and the last reported mileage was 26K and it was titled in a different state. Also, if you notice the pics, on one of them the fenders are a different type than the others. I sent an email to the seller asking questions two days ago, but have not gotten a response.

It is hard to find a black/black (or grey interior) 05 Rubi, with Manual with 35K or less miles out there for under $20K- at least it has for me and I have been looking on ebay, autotrader and craigslist.

I am determined to find one soon so that I can start enjoying the warm weather!

That looks like a really nice Rubi. Hope you can reconcile the carfax. Looks good and capable. I'd push to persue this jeep if at all possible.

Looks like a good deal!!! It is eligible for vehicle purchase protection make sure you read it before you purchase it! I bought a jeep on ebay about 6 months ago everything went smooth! You should not have to worry abut any damage done to the jeep in excess of a $1000 as long as you get data from the seller that it has not been in an accident! Print out ebay listing and keep all contact with the seller in Ebay emails, only for paper trail...just incase!
Find out if it has been wheeled dont pay with cash their is a list of aproved payment methods for warranty by ebay follow them to a T.
---I see in the picture both stock and bushwacker flares, stock rims and
AEV Bridger Wheels which are $180 a piece so see if all comes with the jeep.

Good luck on your bidding! Tell us how it goes!


-John

I dont claim to be an ebay expert by any means, but I have bought and sold several vehicles on ebay, including my 05 Rubicon. That auction is bogus for sure, any time they have a "too good to be true" price, it usually is. The kicker is the, "I have recently moved, please contact me before you bid" deal, he will try to just get you to buy it outside ebay, I would strongly recommend avoiding that auction, just my 2 cents worth....

I found my 2004 Rubicon out of the twin cities, it's black on black and only had a shy under 24k miles on it. I searched for about 4-5 months...hang in there...
