Searching for Mr. Right (or at least Mr. Right Now)

As you can see, a bit of humor...

Actually, search for the best used jeep to fit my needs.

I'm looking for a used jeep, early 2000's, and if money was no object, a rubicon. Mostly because it has the Air lock hubs. But, spending more than 15k is more than I'm interested in at the moment.

What do I want to do in a Jeep? Well, it's a compromise on a convertible car, and is something I envision driving in the snow - a lot. If there is some places to go mudding, I'm interested.

So, here's my questions for all of you educated jeep lovers.

1) Can air locking hubs be realistically added to another model? I suspect that's a helpful feature when it's below freezing and I'm wanting the 4-wheel lock in place when I'm out in several inches of snow.

2) I saw a 2003 Wrangler "Columbia" edition for sale. What model is this based on? (SE, X, Sport, ???). The extras are: premium wheels, two-tone exterior treatment, special trim and distinctive Columbia badging. Interiors feature two-tone seats with an embroidered Columbia logo and unique accent trim. Forget the jacket.

That's it for now. Thanks for your help, and as always, keep the mud flyin!

Yes you can add Air Lockers to any jeep axel, as for locking hubs, warn quit makeing them about three years ago, as they were breaking way to often, and all they were is a set of hubs off of a ford dana 30 IFS, and a custom built set of stub shafts. in the snow and ice it is wise not to lock the front, and with the rear locked it will tend to slip to the low side of the road, with the front locked steering becomes a big issue, in dry rock lock both front and rear and if you go over 36" tires you will probably want to add a hydro assist ram to the steering, as mine aired down to 3psi front locked, hard rock it wont hardly turn with out hydro assist. the other option for selectable lockers is the OX locker it is cable operated so no need for a active air supply.
