Stripped except for AC, 3.73's and limited slip...

Is it new or used. Has to be a used one. A club member bought a stripped down 4 door 2012 Rubicon new. I'm thinking he told me $31k.
I paid $15k for my 2005 Rubi. 92,xxx miles.

I mean seriously do you need a Cappuccino holder and a heated poodle seat?

Bill, I just priced a stripped Rubicon (maybe a Wrangler) on Edmunds, 22.5K.

George, I like cappuccino's and curly haired women, so yes

Dave, I think something is wrong with that one. The windshield doesn't go down, and it has plastic fender?? That grill has a little too much angle to it- you sure it wasn't in a wreck??

I know, it's messed up thinking for a classic CJ guy.

Honestly, I didn't even know they made 2-door JK's, I thought the Rubicon was a TJ so that shows you how much I knew.

A few 2-doors popped up around town and they don't look that bad, especially after browsing the "lifted 2-door" thread in the JK forum.

for the record- I'd already have one if I could afford it.

Dave a quick note. The 3.8 enging in the earlier JK's is not quite as good as the 3.7 that replaced it I'd send a link but the GS t ball game starts In 10 minutes.

An unlimited rubicon 05', 06' up here will bring 16-21K, with 50K+ miles on them. I picked up an 05' unlimited, non rubicon for 11.5K last fall with 93K miles on it, all stock with a 6spd. I like the longer wheelbase, but 22K for a new Rubicon isn't bad. Kinda digging the color too!

Yeah, the 3.8 is definitely no where near as good on road as the 3.6 (not 3.7, Mr. Lucdog).

I stopped by the dealership on the way home, they had one that was probably fully optioned, it was 31K.

First impression:

It was not as quiet inside as I expected,

AC blew cold,

It was very twitchy to me but probably felt so after driving the Frontie

Rode fine,

The 5spd Auto felt like a 3spd, I expected the trans to be seamless between first and fifth, pushing the throttle down and it felt like it dropped from fifth to second at 40 mph.

Think of what you could build for 22,000. My ultimate cj build plan comes in under 18,000. That would make it a reliable, indestructable, 40 inch tired monster. So you would have 4000 left to go on a adventure.

Seriously unless you already have a few CJs or FSJs and need a jeep for your lady to drive, what the hell man???
