used car of the day 2016 jeep wrangler jk rubicon

Today we bring you a heavily modified 2016 Jeep Wrangler JK Rubicon as our used car of the day.

This is for your off-roading dreams.

There are only 23,000 miles on this bad boy with the 3.6 and an automatic. Despite a 3.73 rear axle and some mods, the seller says it hasn't been off-road, in addition to being meticulously maintained.

The mods include Alpine audio, a winch, tube fenders, rock rails, off-road shocks, a 3.5-inch lift, aftermarket bumpers, an aftermarket tire carrier, and 37-inch tires.

Check out this Los Angeles-based rig here. Our seller is asking $39,000.

    Pass. I've known many a Wrangler owner who bailed upon having the epiphany that these are terrible on the street. Most traded to something that's still capable of facilitating outdoor life but is less compromised for daily use.

    This specimen is overpriced, too. KBB says ~$33k. The seller has taken three grand off since Tim published this.

      Dropped another three. Now at $33k. 🤣

  • Bkojote Oil cartel prices have been the best incentive for switching to an EV this year.
  • Arthur Dailey 'In its marketing VW highlighted the Type IV's upscale features like draft-free air circulation, a thermostat-controlled auxiliary heat system, and six-way adjustable front seats that were able to fully recline. The 411 had front and rear crumple zones, a padded instrument panel, a collapsible steering column and steering wheel with padded spokes. Brochures touted the 411’s suspension as being similar to that of the Porsche 911, but with a focus on stability rather than speed. Complete with an independent suspension with MacPherson struts and coil springs in front, as well as a coil-sprung trailing wishbone rear suspension with double-jointed axles and an anti-roll bar. Eleven-inch front disc brakes, plus rear drums, hid behind 15 x 4.5-inch wheels mounting radial tires. 'For carrying stuff, the Type 4 sedan was shockingly adept, having a 14.1-cubic-foot trunk in front, plus 6 cu.ft. of space behind the rear seat. The wagon was even better, carrying around 48 cu.ft. inside with the rear seat folded. 'The original Type IV did have traditional controls. Modern controls were added in later production models. But still in advance of the domestics. Just under 368,000 Type IV's were sold.
  • Cprescott Union workers are only concerned about themselves. They don't care who else gets hurt when they throw a tantrum, er, strike.
  • SCE to AUX Not sure where that photo came from, but it wasn't Canada.
  • Arthur Dailey Very few probably share my view, but I believe that the T-roof option is well worth that price.Bring back T-Tops!!!!!!!!
