we paid $20,800...we were pretty sure that we wanted an 06...we had look at others for sale around the area, those that were stock with average milage (50-70k) were going for 17K-21k depending on condition...we really werent looking for something that was already built up, but think we did ok...

thanks for the suggestion...

its current got about 15.5k on it...we've put about 1k on it since we bought it last week...

ive been toying around with the idea of regearing in hopes that i might get a little power back...its a little sluggish going up some of the highway hills around here...

New to me 06 rubi in nm

the wife and i made an impulse ebay purchase, and now we're trying to figure out what we got ourselves into...

its our first jeep, and though we've done a little four wheeling in our 06 Tundra Double-Cab, we figure this is a whole different beast...

with the help of a friend and a local 4x4 shop, we're still identifying all the mods/upgrades that were done by the previous owner...what i think we've figure out so far is that its a got a 2" body lift, and a 3.5" rubicon express suspension lift...its currently sitting on 33/12.5 tires, and i think thats as big as we want to go right now...

we believe that the rear bumper/tire carrier is LoD, though seems a little different than what they are selling now..same with the front bumper, which holds a Warn PowerPlant HP...we're excited about the possibilities with the onboard air...

its has a nice set of what we believe are customized Warn rockers...it also has a Delta Skybar light system, which i believe ill be removing...

we already broke a bolt on the current quick disconnect sway bar, and the looks like its been replaced, so i think we'll look at upgrading those, as well as the steering system...

below are a few pics, and a link to the whole gallery we have right now...would love some input from folks...
