    Re: 2006 LJ Rubicon Wheel Upgrade

    New forum member here. I bought a 2005 LJ automatic recently. I was eyeing the new JL's but felt they were awfully expensive and kinda bloated. Saw this LJ for sale by owner and bought it. 145,000 miles on it and a two owner vehicle, with the first owner pulling it behind his motorhome a lot. The LJ seemed clean and was stock. Doing some changes to the LJ now. Looking forward to getting it into my driveway soon.

    Re: 2006 LJ Rubicon Wheel Upgrade

    Welcome to the LJ world. I love my LJ but the newer jeeps have some advantages. Cost is not one. I usually stay on the trailing edge of technology. The LJ/TJ is the last if the relatively simple jeeps. The JL is the most complicated. I like simple. Sold a 1985 CJ7 to get the LJ and have never looked back. If I was daily driving. The Newer jeeps seem more suited to that. But my LJ is an extra toy not a DD.

    Re: 2006 LJ Rubicon Wheel Upgrade

    My son-in-law owns a Big-O tire dealership in Phoenix but about half their business is mechanical work including work on 4x4's. He installed a BDS Rubicon 3 in lift with Fox 2.0 shocks, 4.88 gearing, plus a transmission fluid cooler, replaced all belts and hoses, replaced OPDA, installed a Pioneer radio with CarPlay, etc. I drove the LJ from Phoenix north up the I17 grade to Sunset Point and back -- no overheating issues and adequate power to maintain freeway speed up the grade. My LJ has a Mopar hardtop and the vehicle is tight, no sqeaks or rattles, and is really pretty quiet. I plan to drive it to North Carolina in October to visit my son and, although the LJ is no Lexus, I think I am going to do fine on that trip.
