I bought mine last year from a dealership. 2004 Rubicon with 51k miles for $13,000. It was in excellent condition. Whoever had it before didn't offroad with it. I see them going for around $15-$16k on ebay all the time. I guess I'd say check it over really well before buying, and like everyone on here says, make sure it's a true Rubicon and doesn't just have the stickers on it!

It used to be a jeep thing... til that sh!t broke!
This jeep is amazing. I have never had drivin a suv that rides so smooth. And I just kept bargaining with him and told him that the jeep would I to auction soon and they wouldnt get 11 out of it. I said 13000 with full warranty. He wouldn't take so I went to 12750 with limited warranty and accepted. So I got it. Let's see what lift I can get for 3000. I love my bargaining skills.
It is all a game.
Best thing you can do is shop smart, study the current market of prices in your local area. Know what you are willing to spend. Keep it a business transaction and nothing personal. It never hurst to offer a low ball number and be ready to walk.
Bottom line is: There is no such thing as a bad deal, as long as both the seller and buyer are happy with the deal.
