Look nice to me. Rubi with a 3.5 inch rubicon express lift.

If it's what you want go for it.

I don't see a "locker" switch for it on the center bezel... you might want to double check before buying. There should be one switch marked "axel lock" and it's not there.

This is a regular TJ Sport, there's no stock rocker guards or bolt holes for the rocker guards and plus if you click on the "carfax" it states TJ Sport under the VIN

It looks like either previous owner or dealer put the "Rubicon" hood sticker on there.

I believe that 05 & 06 introduced the LJ Unlimited Rubi, which gives a longer wheelbase and more room in the back of the Jeep.

03 had special color choices of Inca Gold & Electric Lime Green.
05 had Impact Orange as special color.

It kindof depends on what your plans are for the Jeep as well.

ya, get an older tj with more of a lift for like 8-10k

I picked up a 99 with 6 inch lift, 35tires, real beadlocks, trailjammer intake/throttle package, bushwacker flares and tons of other stuff for 8250 out the door

these engines will easily last 200k even if you abuse em like us

i hear you on the older ones but i have to be driving it to work on the road. i am looking for a strong and drivable street jeep that is great in the mud. i thought a 04 to 06 rubicon is the best jeep to get.
