"05" Wrangler (Rocky Mountain Edition)

Hey guys, I've been looking for a used wrangler for a few months now and I think I found one yesterday. It's a black "05" Rocky Mountain with a 4.0 6cyl, auto trans, soft top, A/C, stereo w/CD, and so on. It's very clean with NO rust and only one owner. The odometer is 79,750 and has not been off roaded by the looks underneath. Not sure what diffs are in it but I imagine it's a 30 or 35. I drove it today and no wobble or steering pulls it seems pretty sound.

It has the factory skid plates on the trasfer case and the transmission too. Front and rear hooks, trail rated badge, and fuel tank skid plate also. The only thing wrong is blower motor only works on high and it only blows out of the defrosters (no big problem to fix). They are looking to get $11,600.

I'm planning 2" suspension lift and 1" body 32" or 33" tires, front link quick disconnects, bumpers, and some other protective armor. We will be using it mainly for light and moderate trials.

The RME Rocky Mountain editions have a D44 in the rear, which is fairly rare find, the price seems a little high because other than the D44 it mostly an appearance package. The blower motor is a the blower motor resistor, do a search to find out if it is much work.

So if I were to make sure that this Jeep has a D44 instead of a D35. Would checking the rear diff drain plug to see if it has a metal one instead of a rubber one tell me for a "quick check"?

For that price I think you can find one with lower miles. I bought my 2005 Willys Ed. with a little over 24000 miles on it for only $900 more than what they are asking for this Jeep. It has the auto tranny and full doors and special Moss green top.
