I have an 02 TJ 2.5cyl (didn't know I'd get in to off roading when I bought it) fully paid off great shape 72,000 miles. I put a Rough Country 2.5" lift with steering stabilizer and 1.5" spacers and 32/11.5 Pro Comp A/T on it. Can handle green and blues at Raush Creek but want to run blacks.

I was thinking of trading mine in for a Rubicon as well and would like your advice on what you say about modifying yourself vs getting a Rubi.

Don't have time to do myself so by the time I change out axles (Dana 44's on a 2.5?) add lockers and sway disconnect and re gear I just probably spent an extra $5-6000 I figure.

If I got $10k for my TJ trade in I'd pay the extra $6000 to get this Rubi. Sometimes you gotta pay for convenience.

I'm worried about buying from some random private seller and who knows what they did to the Jeep.

Comments? Could use the advice.

I was also thinking of checking out Adams Jeep in MD. They have an off road dept.

Thanks all.
