|PT4WDL||Good pick, especially if you are just planning to park the RV and go see the sites. They are pretty darn tuff trucks and the Rubi may have been over kill for you.|

Good choice. You'll love it I'm sure!
I like my jeep almost as much as my other car (which was my dream car for a number of years)....so that's really saying something. Jeeps are neat vehicles.

|njkeagle||For 5K more I would go with the Rubicon if you are able to spend the cash. I mean 80k less and Dana 44. I mean the other will be fine but if you put the two together and think about it I think it will worth the extra 5K. Unless the Rubicon is bit up.|

It had been used as a daily driver by a woman who drove it 100 miles to work every day. Very happy with it so far.

If you're mainly using it to pull behind a motorhome, and putt around the parks and take on sight seeing trails, money should be an issue. IMO, I'd rather be pulling something around that was $8900 and not $17G or more. My reason for saying that is it is very highly unlikely that you will have trouble with the jeep with 100G miles. They are so very tough.
Therefore, I say go the inexpensive direction. (i won't say the word "cheap")

I have attached a couple of pictures. Does this look like it has been lifted? The tires appear to be Wrangler LT245/75R16.

|4Jeepn||I had 212k on my last 4.0L ran great.. no leaks...etc. For the two you mentioned if money was not an issue I would look into the Rubicon as well. Has lots of stuff you may not use, but sure is nice to have. Do not get a 4 banger with an auto.. snails go faster. Other than that no real bad years etc with the TJ.|

as far as the mileage I wouldnt worry about a 100k...from what I've seen and read on this forum, the 4.0's are good for over 200k.
The Rubicon will always be the prime choice, but will always be more money. Like you said 5000 more. I think what it will come down to is what your willing to spend and how much are the Rubicons options worth to you?
Edit- If it was my choice and I had the money to spend I would go for the Rubicon considering the low mileage, 14k right??

New to Jeeps, need some advice.
I am in the market for a Jeep to pull behind my motorhome. It will be mainly used on trips that we take to Idaho, Montana and Wyoming. I have not decided if I should get a TJ or YK series 2 door or 4 door.
Are there any particular models to stay away from? I have a line on a clean 2002 with 100,000 miles for $8900. With that many miles can I expect trouble in the future. I also found a 2004 Rubicon with 14,000 miles that is in nice shape but about $5000 more.
Thanks for the input.
