Bossmanx Sweet ride. If you got the $$$ and want something already built then looks like everything is in order. Like everyone else said.. New tires and someone who aint afraid to get it dirty and she'll do great.

Too much chrome and shiny parts for me though

Go for it! and have a blast

p.s. welcome to the forum.

If I could....I WOULD...LOOKS AN AWSOME JOB

Yes. And driving pro or amateur, you can still slide into something if something shifts underneath you unexpectedly. And on mud you can slide all over the place. Some people like them, some don't. Like I said, to each his own.

callbob That seems like a lot of money, but you are right about someone else spending the money and you get the benefit. You can't build it for that.

To the OP, looks like a sick jeep. But I'd be concerned what he actually did in it. I mean anyone can say they only took it offroad once. That's an a$$ load of money to dump into a mall crawler.... That's just me though, but it'll definitely perform. I'm not a fan of the huge lift, LA set up, but that's a whole other discussion. To each his own

thats the only thing that concerned me, he did all those other mods but never stretched the wheelbase... then again he was a pavement pounder so he didnt know better

BrandonsJeep He seems to have put good parts on, i think youll be fine

SJPotter I don't really want to build my own, It's cheaper to let the previous owner do that. I know I need new tires, that's included in our negotiations. Just want to make sure all the parts he's put on are up to snuff, I know the axles are so I figure he went all out on the rest.

So you think this one's got the naads for Pritchitt Canyon?

BrandonsJeep Welcome to Wrangler Forum! How much are you looking to spend on your Jeep? that one you posted has everything on it great except for tires... the tires are out of tread, ditch them. Also, are you interested in building your own?

Another thought about the jeep. If it were me and I could afford to buy it, I would wheel the sh1t out of it. It makes me a sad panda to see one all done up like that and not actually used. Also, I'd then put 40's on it and get rid of those 37" slicks.

Edit - It says it's a ToysxTroy Alumiflex lift. Very expensive and all aluminum. I don't think they even make those anymore.

Newbie Wants Jeep

Hi, name's Steve, first post on this forum. I apologize in advance for any etiquette errors. I am a long time 4 wheeler. I have owned 3 jeeps in the long ago past, all stock CJ5s. I currently play in a 2005 Tacoma. Lots of trips to Moab in the last few years has bitten me with the desire to get another jeep.. I want something already built and capable of handling any trail in Moab. I need some help please in evaluating the upgrades of a jeep I have my eye on and am close to making a deal. You can view it here:

Cars for Sale: 2006 Jeep Wrangler 4x4 Rubicon in Jupiter, FL 33477: Sport Utility Details - 327481213 - AutoTrader.com

I am particularly interested in the lift kit because I was not able to find any information on this forum regarding it. Also the numerous other upgrades, if you can shed any light on them I would be grateful.

Thanks very much.
