    This is my 2006 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. Recently picked up this beauty from West Virginia this week. Stock, low miles (53k), and yellow. Exactly what I was looking for.

    Looking to soon put some upgrades on it. Been looking at the Rubicon express 3.5" standard coil lift. Might just get an OME lift, idk. I only do offroading every now and then, so I don't need anything super nice. Really excited to start making this thing mine.

    Got it for 14.5k. I'm from Michigan so any drive out of state to find a mostly rust free wrangler is worth it.

    Crazy! Here in the Pacific Northwest (where there isn't really any rusted vehicles) a clean, low mileage TJ Rubicon goes for at least 20k all day long, and they sell for that fairly easily too.

    Ya I'm really happy with the deal. The seller mentioned they had a harder time selling it because there was still a lien on the title. I was more than willing to jump through the extra hoops needed to get it for that price. Just needed to speak with the seller and their lender directly and everything worked out well.

    Oh yeah, liens aren't a big deal as long as you can get in touch with the bank or whoever has a lien on it. I've sold plenty of vehicles that I still had a loan on. All we had to do was go into the bank with the person ho was buying it and they paid off the amount owed, bank sent them the title, and it was as simple as that.

    Most people just don't realize it's actually pretty simple to do.

    Nice Rubi. As another Guy in Michigan, First time you try taking something about, you'll be glad it came from Virginia!

    Ya it was my first time having experience with that stuff and it was much easier than I assumed. Would suggest in the future.

    Thanks guys!
