For those miles, that is a high price. I wouldnt pay more than 14k.

Who needs a hardtop in FL?

Being an unlimited rubi that price is not horrible. I hate paying that much for any vehicle with that many miles but the 4.0 is tried and true. The unlimited rubis are fairly rare so that may be something to think about too.

The seller agreed to 13.5k. I need both the auto and the hardtop for the wife to agree to the purchase. It is more miles than I would have liked but it will be a second vehicle. My feeling is that it should retain its value better than most cars.

Nice Jeep. I feel sorry for anything that gets in the way of that ARB bull bar.

Yeahh!

My only concern with this era of wrangler would be if any OPDA issues had been resolved. Research these forums and you'll learn what to check on yours.

Great call on the Rubicon LJ.

Don't let the OPDA issue scare you. If yours does have it it's not that hard of a fix. Funny thing is that I don't personally know of anyone that has had the issue and that's between about 10 TJs, including my LJ Rubi. I know it happens but feel it has been blown out of proportion. Check it out just to be sure.
