Last thing I read was 2015, but....

chrisfp88 So did you figure out if you are pulling the trigger?
05-01-2013 12:22 PM
Hellcat03 I wish i could afford another rubicon but that is soooooo over priced lol.. and i got a sales manager at my dealership who is good friends of the manager at southwest jeep right next door that i can at least get a new one at cost... just hate having to get rid of a rubicon that ive wanted since 2003.. but i gotta think logically now lol :-(

C6Rubicon Long time no see Nick. I traded my 06 LJ Rubi on my 12 JKUR. I loved my 06 but love the 12 much more. The new engine and 5 speed auto are great. I'd go with the Rubi if you can afford it. I don't think you would regret the trade. If you want I can hook you up with a friend that works at Pollard in Boulder (where I bought mine) for a test drive or to talk a deal.

Hellcat03 And i also gotta figure out what i owe on her versus what she is worth.. if i owe too much ill keep her until next spring then buy the jku.. i still need to paint the hood, rhino line the rock guards and replace all bushings on the suspension. I did take Chad' s advise and i just installed jks quick disconnects and replaced steering stabilizer shock..
