New TJ Owner (possibly)

Ive been driving my 95 yj for about a year now and love it, but i cant keep up with the rust so i think im gonna sell it. I have my eye on this really clean looking 2003 rubicon, can someone fill me in with the specs on it such as axle ratios and wat kind of upkeep it will possibly need. It has a 4 inch lift with 33's so wat kind of mileage can i expect, my YJ does pretty good sitting on 32's with the 4L. Thanks for the help

If it's still mostly stock, it'll have a D44 front and rear with a 4.10 gear ratio and those delicious lockers. MPG wise, With 33's and stock gearing on my Rubi, I get around 13 or 14 mpg.

I'm with 04-Rubi, on the highway, my 2000 TJ is stock gears, 33" with 4" lift gets about 13 mpg doing 65. It's an auto tranny, so if you have a manual, that extra gear might help.
