2003 Rubicon for sale
I bought this Jeep new in June of 2003 and am the ONLY person to have ever driven it. My vehicles are known in Moab as being the cleanest in town. If someone sees dirt on one of them, I hear about it...seriously. I'm the kind of guy who drives around puddles in the street to keep from getting water spots on the vehicle. I'm 65 years old and have always driven the Jeep conservatively and NEVER on Moab's toughest trails...even though it is certainly capable of doing those trails. I've gone to great lengths (and expense) to make sure the Jeep handles as well on the road as it does on the trails.

23,026 miles as of Sept. 20, 2012

4 Teraflex Lift
Adjustable lower AND upper control arms
Adjustable Track Bar
New Rancho RS9000XL adjustable shocks
Rock-It skid plates on both differentials
285/75R16 Goodyear Wrangler MT/R tires (about 19,000 miles on miles on the spare)

NEW Bestop Sunrider top with tinted windows
NEW Sliding glass Bestop front windows
Hella Black Magic driving lights
LED Tail Lights
Bulletproof Front Bumper
Bulletproof rear bumper with Swing-Out tire/gas can carrier and rack
Side Bars/Steps by Genuine Steel
6 Bushwacker Pocket style fender flares
Locking Gas cap

Gibson Performance stainless steel Cat Back Exhaust (great sound and added power)
K&N High-flow air filter and cold air system
Tom Woods Custom rear driveshaft
Dual Optima Yellowtop Batteries in a Mean Green Tray
Hellroaring Technologies Battery Isolator/Combiner with in-cab control

Sport Cage from Toys by Troy
Max-Bilt Center Console (simply the best)
Custom-modified Tuffy Aluminum Storage Box (35 x 27 x 16) in rear seat area.
Carbon-Fiber Dash Overlay
CB Radio
Alarm system with proximity sensor (sounds if someone reaches into the jeep when top is down)
Upgraded sound system with 360W Alpine Amp and Bazooka waterproof powered subwoofer.
Sony AM/FM/CD/MP3 player

Extras not currently on Jeep:
Teraflex 9550 Shocks (supplied with lift kit)
Untinted windows for the new sunrider top (never installed)
Back Seat and all related hardware (removed immediately after purchase so it is virtually new)
OEM Sport Bars
OEM rear tire mount and stop lamp
OEM AM/FM/CD player
Official 2" thick Technical Service Manual from Chrysler (not an aftermarket manual)
Original window sticker
2003 Wrangler Brochure (mint condition, first year the Rubicon was produced)

Oil changed at least every 3,000 miles
Only the best synthetic oil used
Lube/Grease Job at least every 3,000 miles
Polished every 6 months with NuFinish Paste (rated #1 by Consumer Reports)
Stored in a sun and rain-proof shelter, and under a cover also

As noted, the back seat has never been used. It has been in storage since removal. The back seat area is occupied by the custom Tuffy aluminum box, which has a rack installed on top of it, so that there is a large amount of secure storage area when the top is down. But it's a rather simple job to remove the box and re-install the rear seat.

My 2013 Wrangler is being modified so that the windshield is easy to fold down. That's always been a VERY important aspect of any of my Jeeps. I've made some modifications so that the windshield on this Jeep can be folded down in less than one minute without the use of a single tool.

I'm asking $23,000 but will consider reasonable offers, though any offer will have to beat the trade-in offer by at least $1000 because of the sales tax savings with a trade. I have quite a few higher resolution photos I can email if anyone is seriously interested.

This is the REAL Moab Edition Jeep. Take a trip to Moab and pick it up.

I'm dropping the asking price on this to $19,900 because I'd much rather sell it to a Jeeper than trade it in when the new one arrives, which won't be long now. KBB Private Party value on this vehicle with only 23K miles is about $19,000. There are about $15,000 in upgrades. I've been offered well over the KBB Trade In value by the dealer.

The new Jeep is on the train and will be ready for me to pick up in Denver on Nov. 2. The '03 is still available but will be traded on the new one if it does not sell first.
