Ask and ye shall receive! I threw a few pics in a folder that span from the day I bought it as a stock LJ, through the build, and onto the sale pics (you may notice the pics of the white LJ were taken in the same spot as this '06 LJ). https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Vj1-yBaXmr1rVa8mel498EEf9eaDhZVW. Hope you enjoy!I'd love to see pictures of your original you are trying to recreate. GLWS
That's why I'm struggling with stripping it. If it doesn't sell by late spring/early summer though, under the knife it will go! The only Jeep forum I listed it on is "JeepForum" so far.Nice rig. Do you have it on any of the Jeep forums?
That's the Holy grail in the TJ world
I couldn't agree more the last great Jeep comment. The TJ/LJ series feel much more connected to the CJ lineage and what made Jeep what it is. Regarding 33's/milder bumpers, that is more in line with the last TJ I did:You have the last of the great jeeps. I miss my 06 LJ every single day. Good luck with sell....wish I could justify that as a 3rd vehicle. I'd buy it and drop it down to a 33" tire and milder bumpers and drive it for the rest of my life.
If you want to bad mouth TJ’s/LJ’s, do it in your own thread in the Jeep section. It does not belong in this members for sale thread, nor does your opinion of the price.My comments about TJ's can easily be found substantiated here.....https://wranglertjforum.com/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI8rzC_tHh3wIVBESGCh0P3w5EEAAYASAAEgKntPD_BwE
My opinions about a TJ at this price and a new JL is my own and comes from 45+ years as a mechanic and avid 4 wheeler. To each his own and I understand where you are coming from, a seller who wants the largest profit possible. Good luck with your sale.
We are definitely of like mind. On the Rubi, with the 4.46 first gear on the manual, you have ~ 73.1 crawl ratio. Plenty low to let the vehicle do the work and find its grove without hammering on it. I thought about BAT, and may still consider it in spring. I'm leaning pretty strongly against cutting this one up, so I'll likely simply wait for the right buyer and enjoy it a bit in the meantime as I search for the right LJ tub to start with.I wheeled an 05 LJ Rubicon 6 speed with a 4" short arm lift and 35" tires for a couple years and never broke anything. I also thought the 35's were about perfect with the 6 speed manual and the stock 4.10's.
Will you be able to beat the crap out of it and expect no breakage? Probably not, but you can't do that with a JK or JL either... At least if your in an LJ you won't look like every other soccer mom at the stop light.
Put this thing on bring a trailer!
