The time has come to find a new home for my TJ Rubicon. It is an original Arizona vehicle and has been lovingly cared for in the 3+ years that I have owned it. We tackled some great trails, saw some amazing sights, and even won Ride of the Month! I recently bought an LJ and it is time for someone else to enjoy this great vehicle.

This TJ has been in Arizona since new. The frame is pristine and rust free.

Clean, Arizona title in my name
Price: $16,500
(Price includes both hard top and soft top. We can work a deal with just one or the other, or no top as well.)

New thermostat (Stant 195°, 2019)
New fan clutch (Hayden, 2019)

The good:
Engine runs and idles perfectly
Transfer case shifts perfectly from 2wd to 4Hi and 4Lo with Savvy cable shifter
Transmission shifts smoothly
Hard top is great in the summer heat and the winter chill
Averages around 15-16 MPG
Geared well for 33" tires both on the trail or on the highway; can be a daily driver
AZ emissions good through April 2022
AZ registration is inexpensive ($90 for two years)
Has been in Arizona since new; zero issues with rust

The not-so-good:
Tires have decent tread but are older and should be replaced
Valve cover is leaking a small amount of oil (I have a new Fel-Pro gasket that will be included)

Other:
I have a Garvin Wilderness roof rack that was originally installed on this TJ. If you're interested in the rack, I can definitely put it back on.

More photos available upon request.

Clean lifted rubicon at a number less than some ask for a beat model. I can't say I'm too surprised.

@nk24 Do you have your eyes on a particular LJ or are you just in the market?
I picked one up about a month ago here locally after searching for about 18 months.
