Re: Is the Rubicon worth the $?
I had the good fortune of test driving a rubi the other day... I was at my not-so-friendly chrysler dealer picking up some parts and the sales person decided he was going to harass me... so i wasted a bit of his time and took the rubicon out for a spin. Naturally, I didn't exactly take it out on the trail, but I was definetly impressed... The Rubi is a steal at 26k, only a couple grand more than a sport...
What you really have to consider is this: do you want something that is capable of hitting the trail out of the box? I don't... I've had my YJ for a while now and I can honestly say the best part about owning it has been slowly building it up, dealing with the issues that come up every now and then... Chasing down little tiny problems that I probably will never even catch [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] ... But, on the other hand, if you don't have the time/space to build it up yourself, then by all means buy a rubi.....
