That jeep was here in Hattiesburg at SE Auto brokers, was on their lots for about 2 months. 3 bald tires, 1 new one. Some RK lift parts but some other parts in there too. Thought the fenders were interesting, though I wondered what caused the sticker wrinkling on the passenger side. Was it regeared for the 37s?

Yea the rubicon stickers are shot. Ordered new ones the other day. I bought in in Jackson ms. I haven't pulled the read diff cover and counted teeth but by the gear ratio chart and by my rpm's at 70 mph it appears to been re geared with Atleast 4:88's. I still can't figure out why it didn't sell for nearly 2 months down there.

It is like new and runs great. And for what I gave I can't understand why nobody didn't jump all over it

First... What did you pay

Second... What model is it ? Is it even a rubicon ?

Fair price..

Only reason I ask is mine was trying to be passed off as a rubicon when it was for sale on a used car lot.. And since I have seen a few more and there has been a few stories of people buying X models or sports for rubicon prices because they had rubicon stickers on the hood !

What if your rig started out an X and is now more capable than a stock Rubi? Could you put the sticker on it then?

It is not acceptable in any form... Well I will overlook the guys that have the "rubiXcon" or "rubiiTon"

But I specifically was looking for an X with 4:10s and power doors and windows, I knew at some point all of the rubi stuff would be upgraded so I went with the cheaper platform... But I did find quote a few being passed off as rubicons..

And the dealer who had mine had both the x stickers and the rubicon stickers still on it !

I really like the rubiXcon with the original rubicon letters along with the factory jeep "x" ... Was actually thinking of stealing that idea !

Putting a Rubicon sticker on an X or a sport is akin the kid who put a rolled up wash cloth in his pants at the high school dance to impress the girls. Loser.:D
