2005 Rubicon Sahara #364 project for sale

Hello JeepForum.. the time has come to let the Rubicon Sahara go that we purchased in 2015. It is a nice rig however the computer has gone out so the vehicle will no longer start. Common problem on the 05 and 06 models and I believe Sentry Key related given the light on the dash. Also note up front that the vehicle has a rebuilt title which one can get a loan on unlike a salvage title so full disclosure. Reason for selling is I am about to make a major purchase and will not be in any position for quite some time to continue with this project.

On to the rig and Hemi engine project!

The rig is a hard top Rubicon Sahara #364 w/auto transmission and I have made some tasteful modifications over the years, 121K on it I believe (stock motor runs and sounds great). Rig is on 315 GY Duratracs and I do have some additional Nth Degree Suspension parts that can go with the rig like front coils and a rear Nth Degree Stinger if buyer would like the parts. This is a project Jeep and it comes with a number of parts and a Hemi motor mated to a 545RFE automatic transmission and 4.1 Rocktrac original Rubicon t-case. The motor has 33,700 miles on it out of a 2008 Jeep GC and these motors are becoming difficult to find which is important to note for this vehicle because it will become more and more difficult to find a motor to put in a 05 Jeep and will still be made to work with the stock computer and factory gauges. This Hemi is a good donor for this vehicle. Also see some additional modifications listed below:

-Line X interior, looks fantastic
-Upgraded stereo
-Catch All carpet floor mats
-Poison Spider rockers
-Rear aftermarket bumper reinforced at frame
-4" Suspension lift on 315s
-Nth Degree Tummy Tucker, I was prepping for the 4.5" LA lift


I am asking $16,900 for everything or $12,000 for the Jeep itself. The Rubicon Sahara is getting difficult to find and this one comes with a compatible 5.7L Hemi so I am hopeful to find a good home that will want to continue my build. If I can find a quick buyer at asking I will include the set of light Khaki metallic JeePods I built back in 2011 otherwise I am keeping them given sentimental value. They are one of a kind and look fantastic on the roll cage.. nothing like them on the market and difficult to put a value on given the time and investment it took to make them. Few photos of the Jeep included below.


Thanks for looking!

Computer came in a week or two ago but the shop is telling me they have been swamped and have not had a chance to mess with it. I am going to give them a call tomorrow to follow up and put some pressure to prioritize.

Also should note someone contacted me about the rear Nth Degree Mobility Stinger so that part is pending sale.

Sure is a sweet platform to start a build. Someone should just scoop everything up this week otherwise price is going up by the amount of the shop costs. I am already out a grand on the computer so price for Jeep as of this evening is $12,950 and whatever it cost in labor will be tacked on (basically my bottom dollar price I can let it go for). Engine and tranny I will let go for $3,600 before Christmas then it's back to $3,750 until the setup sells. $16,500 for everything otherwise price will go up some first of the year.

Well there was one more electrical gremlin but the electrical system is now perfect.. we got everything. Power charging system, all electrical is working better than it has the entire time I have owned the vehicle. Electrical work can get pretty expensive and this case was no different but at least it is fixed now and the work is genuine. I have enjoyed driving the Jeep over the weekend and already have the sound system back installed so I don't have to drive my K3500 Sierra, at least until this rig sells.

Price is now $14,500 firm.
