My Pops has the Jeep bug


Recommended Posts

For the last couple of months my father has been asking me questions about TJ Rubicons... and they just kept getting more and more specific.


He has test driven a few of the modified local rigs, but has been very disappointed in how they look and ride. My guess is he is expecting something like my Rubi, which I baby and have not gone cheap building. Example, one was an 06 Rubi with 30K miles. Seats were faded and worn out, carpet was junked, shock bushings had about a half inch of play in them, and the dealer still wanted $21K for it.


I am back last weekend for the Jeep Jamboree and he has 3 Rubis he is bidding on, online. I wouldn't be surprised if he buys one this week. It makes me laugh because he has never been a Jeeper, but has had a few sweet 4x4 pickups over the years.


Guess he really liked wheeling in my Rubi. :yes:

Well he has bid on a few and lost. Missed out on an '03, 100K miles, $12K. Now also looking at totaled Rubis and thinking of selling the boat for shop space. He has expanded his search to 1000 miles from home. Figured he and I could fly out to a Jeep and I could drive it home while he flys back (has has his pilots license).


Rubicon Unlimited ftw! :D

He and I share the same opinion on the "unlimited" TJs (and JKS) :nuts: we just don't like 'em.
