vwrcr The wife and I just picked up a red 06 Rubicon Unlimited. Driving down the road today, we ran across a silver one for sale. No idea how many miles but it looked really clean and mostly stock. I can try to find out more info if anyone wants it. Price listed was $17,900. 6-speed trans, soft top, located in Knoxville, TN.

Edit: Just found it online... http://www.nationalautowarehouse.com...-Rubicon%20LWB

UFOtestpilot I'm currently in the market for an LJ, preferably a rubicon (as I have perfectly good reason to find that a smart move for me), and I may have found "the one". I've looked at somewhere around 15 and I've driven 6 or 7. I passed on one that would have been just fine due to the price, and I missed a really nice one owner with 34k miles by a day.

The one I'm working out details on now is super clean, really low miles, and has some upgrades that I would actually consider upgrades. Very few items are on it that will have to go to a new home. The price is high, I'm not crazy about the color, and it's a 6 speed but it meets 98% of my criteria.

Anyhow, I've seen trashed and overpriced rubi and standard, I've seen stockers with high miles and ones that didn't get much mechanical love and they're all within 4k of each other. Weird how someone thinks a stock LJ with 90,000 miles is worth the same as a pristine <40k mile LJ rubi with a Warn winch, good suspension, or a host of other quality parts I keep seeing on them near the same price.

Wow...is that Rubi snobbery? I bought a non-rubi LJ for DD and dunes...the 4.1 transfer is not ideal for sand. Didn't realize with air, cruise, temp mirror and 4 wheel discs I was duped into a base model.
I'm so ashamed :'( .
Maybe I should trade up to a power wheels.

J Rig06 Oh and I found this note on my jeep a few days ago. I thought it was pretty cool although I wouldn't want to sell it.

But that doesn't make the unlimited better but it does make it just as good. I prefer the rubicon mostly because it's a daily driver that I don't plan on going overboard with but I still want to have some fun. And if I ever did decide to build a gnarly rock rig it would be easier to sell the rubicon stuff to recoup some money vs. none rubicon stuff. It's just my opinion though and I love all LJs, rubicon or not.

Well.......in a lot of ways.....they are built with a lot of cheap parts, like pretty much all economy cars. Id have a really hard time owning a stock one now, knowing how much they can be improved upon.
