So I had a 97 4cyl, but quickly found that most of the mods I wanted to do were not recommended.
So, I sold it and started searching for a Rubicon. This week I finally found one, and think I got a good deal (90k, excellent condition for $14k...good??) It is an 06 Rubicon, automatic, full doors, and I can't find rust anywhere (plus it's undercoated!!). The carfax showed one owner who did all the maintenance and lived only about a half hour from me. (btw, if the previous owner is on here I'd love to hear from you)
I'm not planning anything extreme, but was thinking of going to 33x12.5 with maybe 3-4" lift. There is a TON of info on this site and I didn't see a thread addressing Rubicon lift/tire combination but please point me to one if there is. Any ideas or suggestions?
