    I test drove this Patriot blue 05 Sport, 6 speed, 101k this week and bought it.

    Due to paperwork delays and Labor Day, I can't get my hands on it till Tuesday but here is a pic...

    You should really get rid of those locking lugs.

    I want to keep them both if I can, that's the plan anyway. I sort of still can't believe I have 2 tjs :)

    Good Q! The 04 Rubicon mileage in the CL ad jumped from 101k to 140k in 1 days time, and that scared me.
    I already have one TJ with 168k.

    Well when I got there the 04 Rubi really had 150k and I just backed out of that deal and turned my attention toward the 05 Sport with 101k (and stayed at 101k).
    Both were nicely detailed but the 05 Sport is really, really nice. Plus I love the Jeep Patriot Blue ! And its not been molested as far as i can tell. Looks to be completely stock.
    Well once i test drove it I fell in love with it :) and said, 'draw up the papers'.
    It's pristine. The dealer wouldn't budge and I knew if I didnt buy it the next guy would, so i did. :) I bit the bullet @15k. It's top dollar but I plan to keep it till I die or some jeep head offers me fifty grand !
    ....and the 04 Rubicon had been claimed last I heard.

    That has crossed my mind @Starrs .
    I think I'll just enjoy the 05 for a couple weeks, then draft a game plan :)

    ah...Probably good to back away then. 150K...Definitely not worth what they were asking. Plus what other details were they "forgetting" if they couldn't even advertise it with the correct mileage. That sport looks really nice. Good Find. D30 / D44 combo is very nearly as good as the twin D44 of the Rubicon, and you get to pick your lockers!

    By 'pick your lockers, do you mean there is more of a locker selection available for the D44?

    No, just that you can choose to go lunchbox up front, or selectable...you could also go real crazy, and get a High pinion D30 out of a cherokee.
