Want to trade my Built TJ for a 4dr JK Rubicon Unlimited
2000 Jeep Wrangler TJ Rock Crawler. Better than Rubicon. TRADE for Jeep JK Rubicon Unlimited.

Okay, it's hard to describe all that's been put into this Jeep. There's easily over $30k worth of extras that have been added along the way. It's BUILT to be incredibly solid on 35" tires so that it's extremely capable yet isn't going to be breaking things left and right. This Jeep has done the Rubicon, Fordyce Creek, Most all the tough trails in Moab, Rimrock, Tillamook State Forest (brown's camp) including Crushers. I bought the Jeep with 50k miles on it and it in 2007 and it's got just a bit over 100k miles on it now. Obviously extreme Jeeps used to be one of my biggest hobbies. However, I'm at a point where I only use it a couple times a year.

So, what I'd like to do is offer this up for trade to someone that has a 4-door JK Rubicon unlimited. I *might* consider trading for a TJ Rubicon Unlimited (or air lockered LJ), but that one would be a bit more tricky as there are things I'd probably want to keep off mine if I went to a less modified LJ. I'm at a stage in my life where I'm ready to move on from my extreme wheeling addiction. However, my 8 year old son has BEGGED me not to sell the Jeep as he has so many memories of us wheelin' in it. I'm thinking that if I could get myself a less modified Jeep that could tow my boat from time to time, that would be a good compromise. (hence wanting a JK unlimited). But I can't lose all my cabability, so I would like a rubicon.

My Jeep has been pretty amazing for me. I've done a lot to clean up any issues from the previous owner and build it up even better. There are a couple little things that I haven't dealt with yet: There is a leak between the transmission and the Atlas 2 transfer case. it drips on the garage floor and before I go on a wheeling adventure I have to top off the fluid. The seal isn't that much but I haven't had the motivation to drop the trasnfer case to swap in a new seal. Something in the HID system on the headlights went bad. I'm thinking it's the ballast, but not 100% sure. I will be getting this fixed before the next time I use the Jeep.
The Jeep has always passed emissions with flying colors once I figured out an issue that ultimately led me to replace the ECU. There are some dings and even a couple small dents from wheeling the jeep. I can tell you exactly what happened in each case. Cosmetically, the Jeep still is pretty amazing and despite some minor trail scars, it's a full on head turner and gets compliments left and right.

This jeep is built to tackle almost any trail that you have the skill and balls to do. There's little that I haven't been able to concour and it's built to excessive convenience and capability. I've driven it the 1000 miles to Moab with my son watching videos the whole way and then wheeled it on all the amazing trails down there with the A/C keeping us cool.
