I think the demand for Rubicons keep them in the south west where they get used.
You maybe right in California you see them everyday

Where you live and how you use the vehicle is a big part of it.

If you are down south or out west it makes more sense than if you are in the midwest. I'm in the burbs of Chicago.....not a lot of use for lockers here.

Jeep - It's a Jeep thing...you wouldn't understand.
Triumph - Go your own way.

I see why I'm a loner....and I love it!

We have tons of Rubicons between Baltimore/Washington. Plenty of rich soccer moms.
