2003 Rubi for $18900?

I found this 2003 Rubicon, blue with a black hardtop and full doors. It's got 46600 miles on it. The dealer cleaned it up real nice, except they neglected to clean the mud off the exhaust. It also has JKS quick disconnect swaybar, Rancho 9000 adjustable shocks, a Mile Marker winch, a swing out spare tire, some sort of bull bar front bumper, and a Cobra 75 WX ST CB. The tires look like standard size (p205 I think) BFG mud terrains. Does this sound like a good deal? Aren't Rubis supposed to have a trackbar or swaybar electrical disconnect? This one didn't

Rubicon wasn't made in 2003. It's a scam.

I don't think the electric sway disconnect showed up until the '07 JK.

What you may be thinking of is the electric locking diff's that have dash mounted switches, although I'm not sure if they all had that, or if it was optional.

Can find them cheaper off here, just do a quick search in the for sale, and a bunch will pop up.

The locking diffs came standard on Rubicons, thats pretty much the whole idea.

Come on guys, I'm an XJ guy!

Well I did know about the model specific wheels, the 4:1 T-case & beefier skid plate!

I think that's pretty good for a YJ guy that really dislikes TJ's!

I got my 2003 Tomb Raider Rubi stock w/ 33k for 18k. Although with all that I'd say its fairly good deal, thats easily a few thousand in mods.

If you get this are you trading the YJ in or selling it outright or what?

Well I haven't thought that far ahead. But had no plans to sell the YJ. What's wrong with having two Jeeps?

Nothing at all, I already tried that but the wife says there's no way we could afford two Jeeps.

I can do what I want now. I also heard of a '94 YJ, SOA, D44HD front, D60 rear, and Atlas II transfer case, for $8k. I could probably talk him down to $6k. Because it has a Chevy 350, and I don't know if it will pass smog.
