Rubicon vs sport ?
Just looking for an opinion... I'm looking at a 2006 sport, 4.0 with a five spd. 49000 mi, one owner, upgraded with Rubi wheels and new MTR's. What am I missing so much with a sport vs the Rubicon ? Some of the dealer guys said the 5spd would actually be better for off roading. Any comments, thanks. The same dealer has an 06 Rubi, but it has a history of starting problems. Threee dealers haven't been able to figure it out. It runs sometimes then it doesn't. Previous owner traded it for that reason. The delaer sez they'll fix it, but could you trust it... Thanks
Use the starting prob to your advantage and get some serious savings on the rubi. Tell em to forget about fixing it, you'll take care of it. The knowledge of the members on this forum will far exceed the avg jeep dealer tech. Just my opinion.
Get the Rubi for cheap, and then have some of the great people on here help find/fix your problem. The Rubi is all around better for offroading. By alot.

Don't sports have a D44 in the rear and a D30 up front? They wont sell the Rubi not running, they've replaced a lot of electronics already now a factory tech is going to call the dealer . It was fine up to a year and a half ago, then started with this issue. It cranks, wants to start as if it were flooded, then just cranks. Then sometimes it fires right up...

If planning on >35s and would like a 4:1 case, Rubi.
If planning on >35s and will change case either way, get the cheaper.
