06GoldenEagle i was looking at it mainly for the differentials and minor stuff, and sell the rest off to someone who wants to build a rock crawler

Neil F. Not worth it and you need to check with you state regulations and insurance for title and insurance coverage on a slavage vehicle. You may not be able to get full coverage so any $$$ you put into it may not be covered.

jeepinmike The switch does appear to say axle lock on it, and it in the first slot on the left.... Wonder if that armor was on there or someone used it to cover up damage. It must have had flat fenders, judging by the CJ style front signals. It appears to have an aluminum body lift. It might have a small lift too. Thinking someone kept/traded the Rubi rims, or had a set of aftermarket they kept/traded.

That thing is obviously still very tweaked, looks like someone through some new tin on it without addressing any of the frame or front clip issues.

What is peoples thoughts on the price?? What's a unwrecked 06 Rubi LJ with 100K on it go for? Seems like you could repair it for a few grand, depending on your skill set.

06GoldenEagle i looked at both soft top ones and hard top ones in 06 even with OD if it was an auto and its to the far right. 05 might have been different.

B.B. Mine is all the way to the right, however with a hardtop and auto, i have 4 switches total.

Mine is on the left. It's an 05 though.

B.B. According to the VIN, the sixth digit is a 6, should be a Rubicon if that is indeed the proper VIN.

RubiCobra Nope, you're right. The axle lock swith is in the correct place. I was looking at the rims and tires. Jumped the gun there.

EDIT: Vin has the 6th digit as a 6. Which equals Rubicon.

06GoldenEagle Saw that also, i emailed them for pictures of the differentials and to make sure they were dana 44s as the lock button seems to be in the wrong place on the panel inside. I get no pictures and what u see is what has

H8-roads As funky as that jeep looks, there's one picture that appears to show the rubicon axle lock button. But it's blurry. The two things I noticed are obviously the rims that arent rubicon and that the mirrors are off an earlier tj. (lj's only came with the rounded off ones).
02-16-2012 02:28 PM
RubiCobra Not a rubicon.
02-16-2012 02:19 PM
TX02TJ Pretty sure that's not a rubi
