Jeep Information

Year:2006

Model:Wrangler Rubicon

Engine:4.0L

Transmission:Stock

Transfer Case:231 (phhhht....)

Front Axle:Dana 35 (yes, really...)

Rear Axle:Dana 35 (yeah, no kiddin'...)

Axle Gear Ratio:Figuring this out

Suspension:Looks like a hack job, I'll get back to you on that

Wheels:ProComp

Armor:XRC Tube Fenders, Corner Guards, Stinger

Recovery Gear:Workin' on it

Accessories:Me

Future Modifications:Get this baby back to Rubicon status, then I'll work on mods.


I bought my Jeep used, verified the VIN as a Rubicon - but alas, it's a victim of being stripped of it's Dana 44s, lockers (obviously), compressors (why leave that eh?), switched out the transfer case to a 231 and who knows what else.... I'm just figuring it all out now. Everything under there looks old as heck.

... so should have NOT listened when people told me "girls don't take shop class!" - OMG I wish I had ...

But learning as I go!

I still love my Jeep - even though it's a bit "gimpy" and obviously in need of work. Which is happening, little by little.

Have someone who really knows their stuff check out what axles are under there; you might be pleasantly surprised. Most folks don't "downgrade" a Rubi.

Ok, the diffs are both Dana 35s, and the 231 is the same that's in my 97 Sahara, thr rubicons did come with 44s and 241, but from what I can see of your front susp, it doesn't look like its been messedwith. I foud some info on VINs, and if the 6th is a 6 it SHOULD be a Rubicon. Also - look for evidence of the Rubicon stickers having been removed from the sides of the hood. From the pics it looks like a regular jeep to me but I'm not up close. Nice jeep tho! Hope this helps. Don't forget to wave!

Thank you so much for verifying for me. I thought I did an ID ok. The VIN I verified when I purchased it: 1J4FA69SX6P740812. Rubicon. But alas, it's a half a Rubi. It's ok - I love it anyway, but totally wish now I knew enough to have verified the axles and at the VERY least flipped the locker switch to make sure it worked.

We all learn huh?

Thanks again for verifying! You are awesome. So... know anyone selling stock Dana 44s and a txfr case???


~ I wave always with a smile! ~
