04 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon - Look New Drivetrain! SOLD
SOLD SOLD THANKS
** WARNING LONG POST
It's time to sell the Rubi. It's a 2004 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon (TJ). It shows 120,000 miles on the odometer. I have invested much time and a lot of money into this jeep. Short history, I bought the jeep a year ago. It started out completely stock, with a 4.0 I6 and the Auto trans. Was super clean, never been driven in winter (from MI). It developed what I thought was a rod knock. Then it locked up on my way to work. Towed home and removed the engine found that the connecting rod broke right above the crankshaft.
Decided to convert the auto trans to the manual nv3550 while replacing the engine, which is the stock 04 Rubicon 5 speed manual transmission. I found and installed a 4.0 from a wrecked í04 TJ with 20,000 miles on the odometer (I only have a shipping slip no receipt of this) which only ran synthetic and thatís all Iíve been using in it. That is how it sits today. 20,000 miles on the 4.0 I6 engine, with roughly 8,000 miles on an nv3550 transmission. I did replace the whole wiring harness/ PCM with a stock Rubicon/manual trans (everything works, locker pumps, act.)
While all of this was going on, I updated/replaced just about everything. I also installed a 2.5" Rough Country suspension lift, with .75" spacers on the front, and a JKS 1.25" body lift. The jeep also has a Hurst short-throw shifter, Novak t-case shifter conversion, brand new clutch/flywheel setup, slave cylinder, master cylinder, starter, water pump, ect. I have receipts for everything! It would probably take an hour to read them all! I also created a front bumper/brush guard shown in picture. It has LED taillights, no cat/ after market flow master muffler. New brakes up front, u-joints.
Pretty much nothing has been untouched on this jeep. I could keep going on and on. There is more just ask or come look at the jeep. I donít care to add up the total cost of what Iíve spent/lost on the jeep. Just looking for a new project to work on!
The BAD: need to recharge A/C due to engine swaps, everything is there just need the juice. Other than thatÖ the jeep is ready to go! I do have a factory soft top for the jeep with tinted windows also! Many extras (and stock) parts go with this jeep. Feel free to ask any questions or make an offer!
Iím asking $11,000 O.B.O. Thank you for taking the time to read this extremely long description. Iím sure I forgot parts and will add on to the bottom of this as I recall them. If your interested I can have the A/C serviced for you for a fee.
Also I do have some lower adjustable control arms for the front axle. I was told when I had it aligned that the camber needed to be fixed, by either removing spacers, adding winch (weight on front), or LCAs.
Parts I forgot:
ARB Snorkel, tinted front windows, Air Raid throttle body spacer, e-Fan conversion.
