I pulled up to long light and noticed another Rubi next to mine. In a matter of seconds I noticed: It had stock looking Rubicon decals on the hood. But his hood was the regular flat hood, then noticed his Jeep was slightly lower than mine which doesn’t have a lift, I then noticed front bumper didn’t match plastic Rubi bumper, no rock rails, when I looked down and noticed the mangled Sport decal I must have frowned bc he clearly looked embarrassed and gunned it away from me.
I then noticed the rims & tires were the kind you find on a Sahara (which is fine for a Sahara)

I don’t care if someone owns a sport, Sahara, Moab, Rubi or whatever. All Jeep’s are good. I also don’t care if someone mods the crap out of it. I used to have a Sahara with Rubi rims/KO2s and Rubi take off suspension.

what irked me was the mangled Sport sticker in combination with the Rubi decals. If you’re gonna fake it or mod it at least do a good job of it.

was I wrong for frowning?

I would have frowned also. I think it would be better if that person went on a dozen different websites/Etsy stores and ordered custom letter stickers for his own name/a different park/ etc that were Rubicon style it would be fine.

But maybe he's on his way to trade it in and hoping for the best. But that's snakier than most car salemen do.

That’s why I changed these first.
Couldn’t handle the frowns 😂

Nah. Frowning at posers is awesome.

So insecure with your own vehicle that you need to fake it to be a stock Rubicon? He may have some deep seated childhood issues! :crying:

It was a counterfeit Rubicon made in China.
