Hey guys. been using your forum to do some research. figured id Post up and say hi.

back story.

Im working in Saudi Arabia now but when I return I'm getting a Rubicon. Ive had some kind of jeep since 2002. At one point while stationed in alaska i had 4 cherokees in different states of build. Nothing huge just 4in lift with welded rear gear. Then I sold all of the heeps and bought a truck so i could have something reliable that would actually tow all my (read new wifes) house hold stuff down the alcan highway. Well she had a PT (married into it and hated it) she decided to get something new. I got her talked into a liberty and now that this job is paying great and my truck is payed for shes gonna let me get a new toy.

Ive got some time to look and price isnt really a issue but im not gonna overpay. im looking for Rubicon. i want the 44s and the gearing cause first thing first its getting a 4in lift and a winch. i wanna run 33s. and it has to be a manual. been looking and i got some time to keep looking so ill find my dream jeep.

my question is... the v6 jeeps they look wrong but are they worth a damn. ive had lots of experience with the I6 and love it. and other than electric sway bar releases i really don't see any benefit to the new jeep. but when i get back it might be the only thing i can get ahold of. i wont buy a jeep with over 30k and mods. im doing everything myself. i think the v6 just isnt right but is it more effective. and the fender flares are horrible. id have to get a black one so they dont stick out so bad.

its a privilege being here and look forward to many years of good discussion.

I had a 2002 x and loved it. never lifted it cause it was a daily driver and my beach bummer when i was stationed near a beach. now my home is montana and id rather have the clearance and the lockers. rubicon all the way

so ive done some more reading about the JK and it seems to be a very capable machine. and i like the idea of less lift more tire. watched this video

now my thing is... is it worth the price difference. im after a rubicon and nothing else. i like the gearing t case and factory lockers. but the price of an 06 vs an 07 is ridiculous. it the 07 worth the extra 6-8 k for a used one? im thinking a tj will do me just fine even a LJ and ill dump the remainder into accessories and probably be a lot happier
