I am fairly new over here on JKOwners but I've been lurking for a little hile b/c I am on the hunt for the next jeep to occupy my garage, a JK Unlimited Rubi. I've been on Pirate for a while and I have had several Jeeps in the past just nothing this new. I've had a stock YJ, semi built TJ and a one ton V8 YJ, I now want a weekend warrior DD so that's where the Rubicon comes into play.
I found one, a 2007 with 92,500 miles. It's a bone stock auto unlimited, hard and soft top and they are asking $20,000 for it. I haven't driven it yet, b/c it's a few hours away, but I have been corresponding back and forth with the owner. He said that all the maintence has been kept up and it needs a set of tires bad (based on the pics they are cupped and very worn).
The couple of questions that I had for you all is what is the maintenance shcedule on the new JK's, things like the transmission, tcase, gear lube, when should these be changed? What is the suggested oil change interval, 3,500 or 5,000 or something else on the 3.8?
Are there some things that I need to look for specific to the JK or the Rubicon? What do you think of that price? I personally think it's a little high based on other things I am seeing out there on Autotrader and eBaymotors, but things are worth what someone is willing to pay, so who knows.
Any info provided is greatly appreciated.
