05 LJ Rubi in the stable

Thought I would share

Just bought this Rubi LJ

Pic attached, and I'm in the pic, HA. Stole the pic from the dealer web site. I go back Saturday to pic it up, its hard to drive 2 vehicles home without the trailer.

Plans for it revolve around 44s, and light bars and stuff like that.

Well actually, I may go back to 31s and 15" rims. My dad will be driving it for the next few years. I needed to get him out of the 96 S10 I bought new back in the day. Figured I would put him in this till he isn't driving. Mom does not like driving the S10 now either. So a basically stock rig for the foreseeable future. I hope dad is stoked.

It does look pretty clean an unmolested underneath. Looks to be a stock suspension, not sure if it was ever changed. Just the 2" body lift to clear the 33s

That and pull all the chrome off it, but dad may like it. Good thing I have lots of extra parts from the TJ. Thinking I have bumpers and allot of other stuff no one wanted to buy used.

The inside needs cleaned up, but as we all know the insides of jeeps are simple and easy to clean.

I go back to pick up up Saturday, Ill get a better look at the underneath when its on the trailer.

There was a Tan one for sale for 10K over what I paid for this one.

Put the LJ on the trailer and brought it home. I think Mom is more excited than dad for the new Rubicon.

Now to find some stock Moabs and do some more work on it. Gotta loose the body lift.

The carpet was wasted, ordered new stuff already.

I alerted the forum support people about the image viewing problem a few days ago. They are "working on the problem."

This happened about when the parent owner of these forums moved all of them to cloud computing.

It's interesting that I'm never had any issues like this and based on user reports, there doesn't seem to be any common element like a particular browser or operating system. Also about this time they moved to SSL (https) which encrypts browser traffic. I'll keep after them.

Now dad doesn't like the LJR. I also found the issue with his truck I was replacing.

Trying to make some decisions about how many vehicles I need. Well want, need is not really a revenant argument.
