May be in the market again soon....
« on: January 29, 2015, 11:45:12 AM »
So a few years ago (circa 2005), i got this Jeep bug. It became a bit of an obsession, but i let it go....

Fast forward to now.... I kinda regret it!

I have an interesting next few months ahead, but i MAY be in the market again. Im perplexed. I might try to buy my old Rubicon back. However, given what the price likely would be to get it, i could buy something thats built better and stronger as well. I would really like to have my rubi back, its sentimental and to this day, my kiddos still are not very happy about me selling it. This weighs in as well. This purchase likely would really piss the ole lady off, BUT she has to understand the desire i have to own another Jeep and the opportunity to do so is possibly coming up pretty quick..

My options are, in list of priority:

1. but the rubi back (if i still can AND the price is right)
2. Buy something built but streetable (TJ or CJ) Not interested in square headlights, unibody or JKs. really wanta Jeep but would consider something else if it appeals to me.
3. possibly a SxS?


Ideally, it would be a fun good weather driver and wheeling here and there.

Got any suggestion, or leads?

Good to hear from you Robert! I can understand wanting the old Rubi back, but like you said, the price has to be right. I'll keep an eye out.

Come on back! Personally, I wouldn't want the SxS due to not being street legal and having to have a tow vehicle and trailer. But that's me. XJ's are cheap and capable.

The SxS is an option, but again, for the price of one, i can find a driver/wheeler.
