Sold my 01 Sport and bought an 05 Rubicon!

Instead of spending a ton of money and time on building up my 01 Sport I figured it would be better in the long run to start with a Rubicon as a base for a moderate build. So I sold my sport and bought a 2005 Rubicon from a local dealer. All stock except for the rocker rails and it has a small body lift.

So far I'm very happy with my decision. There are so many big and small differences that make it a better jeep and you cant beat full dealer coverage for another 70,000 miles!

Here is my old 01:



New Rubi:

It was a pretty big price difference since the 05 had super low miles and was like new. In my case it was about a 7k price difference but I've seen 03 rubicons that would have only been a $2500 price difference. I just wanted a newer lower mileage rubi so I went the pricier route.
