Story of my luck Oh well I need to start asking more questions so I can list my truck on here. But trying to get quality posts sometimes takes a bit.

The only thing that worries me is I still owe on it, but I'm hoping to pay it off at tax time. Unless I sell it first and pay off the loan and use my tax return to bump me back up to buy a wrangler. Oh well I will figure it out.

04-Rubi Just for a price reference, I got my 2004 Rubicon with 77k miles out the door for around 12.5k. Bone stock, by the way.
01-17-2011 10:33 AM
perkalator For the price I would find a 2000 or newer sport with a 4.0L. It has the dana 44 rear end, nv3550 tranny is a better tranny than the auto. This will be a good starting point. If you plan on doing Major mods over the years that include axle swaps ect. Buy the basic model since you might be pulling most of the parts out in the future. Teach your wife how to drive a manual once my wife learned i couldn't keep her out of my rigs.

4Jeepn Welcome. 1st rubicon started in 2003, not sure what your buget is but many 03/04 have been going for as low as 12 with most under 15k If you can't get a rubi I would look for a sport with the rear dana 44 axle at least. Has a metal fill plug in the diff cover vs the dana 35 round plastic fill plug.

rogertc1 Go on Creigs list, E-bay or check the car lots and papers around Grand County, Indiana.

Help me figure out which wrangler to get.

Well first off let me say that I'm looking for a Rubicon, but if money or availability blocks my purchase, what would be the next best model to look for? I really need an automatic for my wife in case she would need to drive it. But other than that that's about it.
