I am looking at buying a 2001 Rubicon from a private party and wondering if you guys think this is a decent deal. The machine is in very good condition overall (usual scratches on plastics and paint chips on frame). It has 5k miles on chassy and about 500 miles since top end was gone through. The front and rear diff's as well as rear axle have been replaced and it has had a recent brake job. The machine runs and drives very well and is very tight all around . The only thing that concerns me are the high miles on the bottom end and transmission.
Aftermarket items include grip and thumb warmers, lift kit, Warn 2.5 winch, Warn242 selector and 2 extra backwater tires.
Asking price $3300.00
As far as a "little more" I really don't see it, right now they are right around $6700. out the door in MN.
5000mi is a lot of miles but I think it depends on how it was used.
Take a good look at everything and if it drives right I would be inclined to say go for it. Worst case scenerio with tranny is that she pukes.......~$1500. Find out what bottom buck is and try to drop him a little more
i traded my 03 rubicon on for $2500 and it had 5000 miles on it. the brakes didnt work, the seat was cracked, plastic cracked, rear diff made a popping sound. just look it over really good and everything. i bet you could get them down a little.
