I just bought my 2006 Rubi last Saturday. It's a Canadian model, 27,800 miles, automatic, a/c, 6-disc CD, hardtop. I had a 95 YJ, but sold it soon after getting the Rubicon.














After removing the milk jugs.

Hopefully this will turn into a build thread in the not so distant future. :)

Good looking Rubicon......I notice that it lost it's jugs!
Thanks, I'm still getting use to the yellow. I knew the jugs were going as soon as I bought it.

I think the yellow can look very sharp with the black contrast....

Besides kph's, what else is different in the canadian model?
Don't get me wrong, I like the yellow, I'm just used to red.

The Canadian models have daytime running lights, and the safety warnings on the visors are in english and french... :cheesy: I haven't found any other differences yet.

nice jeep.
Thanks.

I threw one of my 33s from my YJ on the Rubicon today, just for kicks. Not much room between the flare and the tire. :rotflmao: I like my YJ wheels, on my YJ, but hated them on my Rubicon.

I spent the best part of my day working on the YJ, which I can now do, thanks to owning a Rubicon too. :cheesy:

aw man michiana jeep clubs got a 9/11 event going that day . im working the event enjoy your frist trip with the rubi
I'm looking forward to a day out, even if I don't do the obstacles I do in my YJ. This will just be a feeling out process for me. I'll probably end up spending more time watching the others and taking pics than I do wheeling.

I took the Rubi out for it's first run today, boy what a difference from the YJ. It sucked not to have the clearance I have on my YJ, but the power difference is crazy! I have to say I'm liking the auto too. I need new/better/bigger tires, a lift, some more armor....... :rotflmao:

I'll post up some pics later.

I ordered a complete set of Husky floor mats, I have them in my YJ and love them, so I figured why not. Now if I could just sell the YJ and get some cash to get some real good stuff for the Rubi.
