Easy on, haven't taken it off since I put my soft top on. Got it to cover the scratches from taking the hard top on and off. It's very durable and keeps me from getting burned by hot metal when I have to reach into the back.

Now back on topic.

Geoff@Bestop 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.

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?
04-13-2010 08:14 AM
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!

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!
