sure. Appreciate the complements guys. 3" BDS suspension lift and 2" body lift with 35" (315/75/16) ProComp tires. Still pretty tame as it is my current daily driver. It doesn't even feel "BIG" to me anymore. Down the road the plans are 4.5" or 5.5" RE with 37" Krawlers. It will purely be a weekend toy then.

Just some info for my LJ brothers....

Production sold for the 04-06 LJ (by years)
2004 - 11,822 Unlimited
2005 - 7,450 Unlimited
2005 - 5,854 Unlimited Rubicon
2006 - 14,624 Unlimited
2006 - 6,742 Unlimited Rubicon

Totals:
33,896 - Unlimited
12,596 - Unlimited Rubicon
46,492 - Total


some interesting notes...
Hold on to those LJ's boys (especially those Rubi LJ's)! they could very well go up in value (maybe even reach collector status)...
To use the CJ-8 as an example (low production years, similar body style etc), today can fetch anywhere between 15k-25k and up (depending on the condition). They are very sought after because of their low volume produced and did not sell very well when new. Now look at this:

CJ-8 produced from 1981-1986 (6 years)
LJ produced from 2004-2006 (3 years)

Rubi LJ is even less being only produced TWO YEARS (05-06)

CJ-8 total production for 6 years is 27,000
33,896 - Unlimited
12,596 - Unlimited Rubicon


Rubi LJ has less then half total production of the CJ-8 while only being offered 1/3 the years

Greg H, that Jeep is absolutely great looking. I have a black TJ right now thinking about going to an LJ Rubi. How do you like your Delta Quad Bar headlights? I am running the Hella H4 conversion, couldn't be happier. I figure you have considered this already, but have you thought about some black krylon fusion paint for your fenders? Aint' trying to put you down at all, just a suggestion.

Thanks! Yeah, i really enjoy having the LJ. It makes it really nice to have the room to put gear when you're going on any sort of adventure. I cut a board to size and carpeted it to put over the rear storage area and now i have a trunk that locks! I can keep various tools, cables and air compressor back there with plenty of room to put some more stuff in if need be. There is no way i could have done that in a SWB TJ. And honestly i like the look of the LJs better too when they are lifted. Just wish i had known more about Jeeps before i bought it. I definitly would have held out and gotten a Rubi.

I LOVE the Quad Bar headlights. The stock lights were so dim that i immediately was looking to upgrade. The Deltas definitly give you bang for the buck. They are super bright and give off clear light too. Everytime i see other jeepers around i tell them to do themselves a favor and go ahead and get these. They are awesome.

I totally agree on the fenders man. At first i kind of liked the two tone but this past weekend i got some Mothers Back to Black. (No, thats not an adult film.) It really turned my fenders, well, back to black. But from what i've read on the forums it doesnt last too long so i might be looking into some krylon fusion before too long. The jeep looks really good now with the black fenders. I'll have to put up some compairison pictures.

SaharaJeep,
the wheels are made by stockton. If you do a google search, they are the same ones they put on the Jeep JT concept.
Happy wheelin

Here ya go:

RE SF 4.5" lift
35/12.5 Toyos
1" BL
1" MML
Rockhard RC
Truespeed
Garvin rear carrier/bumper
Terra Belly up skid
RS9000 shocks with in cab controls
and a ton of other odds and ends

I never really liked Jeeps so much until the unlimited came out, then I was hooked.

Cool, looks good. I'm running the RE SF 4.5 and RS9000's too. Just curious, did the 35's kill your mileage? How bout your power?
Cheers!
