2018 Jeep JL Rubicon & 2004 Jeep TJ. Previously owned 1993 Cherokee, 1980 CJ5, & M151A2 while in the Military. For the love of Jeeps !
Keep it ....it will retain more of its value when you go to trade it in later.

I too was looking for a Rubicon when looking for a new JL, however I began thinking I would never use its capabilities so went with the Sahara. I did have the dealer install their Mopar 2” Lift and bigger tires. I have no regrets. I do agree with most on this post to keep the Rubi and enjoy it!

Keep the Rubicon as is. Sell it out right and you will get most your money back. If you have very low miles and no dings or dents, there is a market. I wouldn't modify the Rubicon at all... No one wants a Rubicon they have to rebuild, Value would drop like a rock.. Maybe I am missing the point...

I am going to buy either the Sahara in diesel 2022 model or Gladiator in diesel. I am not interested in how far I can drive this in mud or rocks, etc. No offense to those that want that. It isn't the look that matters to me either. I just like knowing some places I go I can get to. I also have had the first VM diesel which is in the Wrangler and Gladiator and with the exception of the idiot system implementation of the emissions it has not given me a bit of trouble and I have 95K miles on it. Thanks to the lawsuit FCA has given me an extended warranty which is 48 months or 48,000 miles which ever comes first. That started Nov last year.

The EcoDiesel engine is made by VM Motori, an Italian manufacturer.

Thanks so much for posting. Yes I am starting to hoard parts as I figure I can always sell them. Started with Rubicon rims. Will start to do bumper and hood soon. I believe the rear bumper does not look right on a Sarah due to the Rubi having the high fenders. OK thanks!
