I like it. I paid 19k for my LJ Rubi with 64,000 miles. So a bit higher in price than I would obviously pay, but nice lj none the less.

I love a LJ rubi, but still a bit strong on the price. None of the mods scream price increase.

22000 sounds a little high, and like ^ said none of the mods should increase the price that much. Try to make him an offer.

That's a 17-18k dollar jeep where I'm at.. It does have good upgrades though. 37s get expensive to replace so remember that.

17-18K, it was likely wheeled. Looks well taken care of however. Nice mods, 37s are pushing the envelope a little even for rubi axles.

For that price i would expect upgraded axle shafts, non stock gearing, upgraded lockers, and a custom suspension. 18k and I would replace those 37s with 35s and expect to regear.

No need to regear with 35's on a Rubi IMO. I have stock gears and it runs great with 35's

Have you ever driven a correctly geared rig? Night and day difference.

His stock gears are 4 10s though. Nd
To the 307s or 373s. I would still regear but he's a little better off.

I drove my buddies with 5.13. It's nice, but honestly not a big deal to me. I can hit highway speeds just fine. I'm not trying to race her.
