I think the LJ Rubicon will be the most collectible of any Jeep made in the past 25 years or so. I think it will really hold its value, even more than regular Rubi's. Does this make it worth the cost? Heck if I know.
Plus, I want you to buy all new Bestop stuff. OK, that's a joke.

Get the LJ...the space is nice.

|JDsDream||Post up and sale what you have and use the money to buy new parts. I own an o6 Unlimited and I have a co-worker with an 06 Rubicon. He said that he wishes that he had purchased the Rubicon Unlimited and has even offered to trade. As far as aftermarket parts are concerned, I have had no problem finding whatever I needed for mine. Most of the parts are interchangeable with the swb wrangler. The doors are the same and all of the interior. The only things that I have purchased that are unlimited specific are the soft top, trail cover and the trim that covers the top rail of the tub.|

|InfernoGirl||Nope, sell 'em and buy what fits! It's not like you don't know where to find a market for your stuff...|

|Jp90Talon||The main reason I hesitate is that some real expensive items that I already have will not work with the LJ. Would that stop any of you from getting an LJ over the regular length Rubi?|

|InfernoGirl||Yep, JP, since you are already aware of the shortcomings (fewer aftermarket do dads). The extra length can be a big plus. Think about it, no one on these forums who owns one ever says "Dang, I hate my super long TJ.... " They all love them, which means they must have something going for them Just stockpile a bunch of spare parts and you'll be the man to go to in 15 years when there's none left!|

By all means, YES get the LJ if you think it will work for you!
That extra bit of length makes a world of difference on the trail and for people hauling too.

Yet another Rubicon question to aid in my search.
I hate posting up so many questions but I really want to get this right. I have been searching for a TJ Rubicon and have been coming accross quite a few Rubicon Unlimiteds. I honestly like the look of them esp with a nice lift. (Remind me of the old scramblers). Most of the time they are even being listed for less $ than the regular Rubicons. However I do realise that a large portion of the parts I have will not swap over (bestop 2 piece hard top, new supertop, extendatrunk, corner guards, and a few other.
So my question is.....is an LJ Rubicon worth it in the long run? I know not all that many were made and they are somewhat rare but is the extended wheel base really worth it or should I just keep looking for a regular TJ Rubicon.
Thanks in advance yet again!
