I am building this thread to document the progress as the jeep comes along. My hope in purchasing this jeep is to have a project to work on with my sons and build it up slowly over time.
Here is some info on the Jeep:
Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited
Soft top only
Factory Rubicon Options
6 disc indash cd changer
84369 miles at purchase
Purchase date was 7/23/2014 and paid 13.5K
The jeep was purchased completely stock, judging by the undercarriage and engine bay it has never seen a dirt road. It even had a bra
in the back of it when I purchased it from the dealership. I was hard pressed to even find some surface rust on the frame because it originated in FL. The only issue with it was hail damage from a storm in May 2014. The soft top was shot and the hood has some dents, otherwise it is the perfect starting platform.
My ultimate goal is to hold on to this jeep and cherish it like the CJ-8 that I always wanted as a kid. I purchased an LJ Rubicon because in my opinion it is the best model of jeep ever produced.
Attached are the photos from the dealership when I went to look at it and some shots when I first brought it home. You can see how bad of shape the top was in and a close up of the hail damage.
My wife and I took a good 10 minutes to figure out what the hell the bra was
