    Zero accidents
    Clean Carfax
    Well maintained
    Around 90k miles
    All stock except for:
    Crown OPDA
    S160 Android Stereo
    No remarkable rust - the vehicle is from Nevada (Las Vegas) and Texas. Great condition.
    6 speed manual transmission (recently serviced with Royal Purple)
    Has upgraded factory sound system (sub built into center console) - I removed it but will include it with the sell
    Black exterior, excellent shape
    Black/Grey interior, excellent shape
    Never abused / never off-roaded
    Side Steps
    Engine oil always changed with Royal Purple HPS (not regular RP, this one was the zinc still in it which our engines love).
    Cruise control
    Pretty new beefy tires (Goodyears)
    No leaks known, always garage kept.
    It has the nice rubber Quadratek floor mats front and back.

    Only “issue” is OBDII says P0421. Mechanic thinks it’s because it has some stupid aftermarket O2 sensors and not the good NGK/NTK Bosch factory - or it needs a new cat. Either way, cheap and easy fix - I just never did it because it doesn’t effect the engine at all.

    Runs wonderfully. I don’t need to sell it and don’t really want to. I’ve babied the thing.

    I don’t know how much to sell it for. I see these going for $25k in this kind of condition.

    I don’t want to sell it but if I get a good offer I just might - so if anyone is interested let me know.

    It’s actually painful for me to even consider this, being that this is one of the most sought after Wranglers and this one is completely unmolested and never abused.

    Beautiful Rubi. 25k isn't too far off prolly as an asking price goes. Looks very clean, and why are you wanting to sell?

    He can't afford the maintenance on the Porsche unless he does :risas3:

    Well, if he hasn't learned that yet, he soon will. Take it from someone (me) who used to own an M3 and an M5... and those were just BMWs!

    I know. It was just mind blowing how much money it took to maintain my M3 and may M5. I love them, but I promised myself after that that unless I got rich, I'd never own another German car again.

    Again, that's not me knocking German cars (I love them), I'm just not going to pay the prices to own one.

    I'll have my Rubicon paid off in about 2 mos then I'm done with car payments for a while. It's gonna be nice not having one for a change. I think this jeep should last me for a while unless I get an offer I just can't refuse. Owning an M4 would be awesome, but I don't "need" that at this point in my life haha. This jeep is all I need really.

    M4s are amazing, but trust me... Once you have to go in for your first service or buy a replacement part, you're going to hate life. My Mom has a new BMW 3 series and the maintenance costs are astronomical. She's only owned it for a year but said she plans on selling it this Summer only because of the upkeep costs alone.

    It really is beautiful. I drove her around today and it just blew me away how well she rides/drives.

    There was one at the Las Vegas Jeep dealer just like mine but not in near as good shape for almost $26k.

    I will consider reasonable offers.

    Seriously, good luck to anyone in finding one as in good shape as mine that also happens to have the S160 radio.

    Never again will I own a German car, I promised myself that after numerous VWs in my younger years, as well as a number of E36 M3s, E34 M3s, and an M5. I simply won't do that whole overpriced parts and over-engineered bull crap again. I will stick to American and, Japanese, and any other make but German, haha. That's not to say I don't like the cars they produce, I just don't want to own one, that's all!
