any other JEEP RUBICON owners

I recently bought a jeep RUBICON, which I absolutely love. I just wanted to hear others opinions either for or against them.

There is no hunting like the hunting of wanted or armed men!

Re: any other JEEP RUBICON owners

They are great off roaders and all around puddle jumper.The only negatives I have heard is ride quality and mostly poor milage.If you have a soft top then it is probably noisy and drafty.

Re: any other JEEP RUBICON owners

I have 2 wranglers now, looking at another one. I get the value of a rubicon if one wants to play off road. But if one just wants it for on road driving, I am not sure I see the value.
Don't take that wrong, the Rubis' are cool, but if your just looking for one to drive on the road, I would prefer a Sahara package.

Re: any other JEEP RUBICON owners

Only Real benefit of a rubicon is the D44. The lockers it comes with are off brand (probably chinese) and have had numerous issues if you actually make use of them on the regular. I dont own one, but if i were to purchase one i'd get a sport and throw the extra savings into ARB or other lockers, susp, and tires if i was planning off road use. If you dont plan on wheeling it, there is no need to waste money on a rubicon anyway.

Re: any other JEEP RUBICON owners

I have 2007 2 door Rubicon. Another benefit of the Rubicon is the 4 to 1 gear in the transfer case. I think I will be trading my jeep in for a 2014 Unlimited sport. Jeep is putting an 8 speed auto in the 2014 models. I have racks for my 2 door but not really enough room for all my gear. I don't go off-road enough to justify buying another Rubicon.

Re: any other JEEP RUBICON owners

I have a Sahara and love it. I just didn't have the need for what comes with a Rubicon, but an awesome vehicle that will go just about anywhere you want.
