|biggie||All this time I thought it was Saharcon. I'm # 115. Bought it with 79K from a guy in Eugene, OR so we call him "Eugene"! I use it for my daily driver. We pull our teardrop with it and do moderate wheeling. Getting an LJ was a good move. The RSU was an extra treat.|

|JeepScrambler||I will pull the flare off tonight to check it out and see. Does anyone know if the color is molded into the flare from the factory or if the flares were originally painted? They do not appear to be painted.|

|JeepScrambler||Does anyone know the part number for the '05 LJ Rubicon Sahara fender flares? I am needing to replace one of mine and am having a tough time finding a direct replacement that is the same color.|

|Junky_One||I'll take that hood jack mount off your hands|

|JeepScrambler||Thanks! I just learned the TJ/LJ's don't register miles, I guess I am used to my old mechanical speedos.|

|wwch99tj||Nice find, when flat towing it does not register miles...|

After several months of pretty intense searching, I finally picked up my first LJ. It is an '05 Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon Sahara and has been and AZ Jeep since new. It is number "0002 of 1000", 6 spd, w/ the hard top and has 38K miles. Some of those miles are from being towed behind a motor coach which is evident from the tow setup that is on the front of the Jeep (I will keep the tow setup on it). I plan to keep the Jeep stock as I have several CJ's to take on the trails. I am still debating if I want to keep the aftermarket bumpers that are installed or go back with stock ones. The high lift jack hood mount will be removed as well. So far I have only added the correct rear tire cover and black husky floor liners. Being a CJ guy all this plastic is new to me, but I am really happy with my purchase!
Only two dents on the Jeep are on the front lip of the driver's side fender:

who knows why the stock stickers were removed... didn't make sense to me either.
I ended up using some rubbing compound to clean up the paint to the point where a very faint outline could be seen.... and I knew where the sticker outline was so I think I was being overly picky.
Stickers went on easy. They had built in guide with indexing marks to ensure they were aligned correctly.

^what schmuck removes the correct decal and throws on a wrong one?
glad you are going thru your classic Rubihara and making it look correct.
can't help you on the paint blending other than to take it to a shop.
and literally 65 minutes ago I passed a Rubihara going the opposite direction about 5 miles from my house.....that chrome grill and khaki paint are easy to spot once you know what to look for.

just picked up my oe SAHARA decals to replace the wrong sahara decals.
took off the wrong sahara decals and can see where the correct ones had been installed.
any tips or tricks for blending the paint from where an old sticker was removed ?
any tips or putting on new stickers ?

|InvictusDecretum||I have #268. It's fairly close to stock (for now, since I'm deployed), and it's in my sig and I think I put one in the gallery too. I really like the color scheme and the look of the LJ. In fact... Mine still has the stock tires (From what I can tell) and wheels on it ! 16" moabs with a 30.5in (I believe) tire.|
|08-19-2013 06:15 PM|
Here's the one I'm picking up, #231!!!
|08-12-2013 07:02 PM|
thank you sir
|08-12-2013 03:52 PM|
^very nice Rubihara!
karma for me: I was standing in front of the pizza place on Rt 190 in Sommers CT this past Saturday waiting for my pie to be done and what pulls up and stops at the traffic light but a beautiful 2005 Rubihara...it had the hard top on and the windows up on a nice 80 degree day so I know the driver was enjoying the a/c. It looked bone stock front to back. This was the 1st one I ever saw in person.
|08-12-2013 11:01 AM|
Just the mild stuff, got to drive it home!
|08-12-2013 10:11 AM|
|08-12-2013 08:53 AM|
Yes this is the one you saw on CL, I was lucky to find it so close to home.

My 05 Rubi Sahara
Hi Guys, I'm new to the forum and just picked up this last week, my first Wrangler! Its number 292
|08-09-2013 03:52 AM|
^also do not forget the special Moab wheels that are painted between the spokes.
plus, there was only one "Rubihara"......lots of LJ Rubicons made but only 1,000 Rubicon-Saharas.
|08-08-2013 11:47 PM|
- only 1,000 made
- Chrome grill
- Tail light guards
- Interior badge with serial number
- Spare tire cover and floor mats
- Sahara sticker on fender
that is all I know of.....
Nothing too special (my opinion) but a nice score when you pay less for the Jeep than you would have for a normal one and then later find out it is one of the limited edition ones.

|Brew||What does a Rubihara have that an LJ Rubi doesn't have besides a sticker and fewer color options?|
