Showard59: 2009 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon

Well, my Versa is gone. I traded it in for a Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon today. I'll still be around here occasionally to spread any knowledge I can, and because I now work in the parts department at a Nissan dealership. So, if anyone needs something, let me know, and I'll see what I can do for you.

Big congrats on the Jeep! Have Pentastar 3.6 L engine? That's what I have in my Charger, as does my buddy with Wrangler shorty 6sp manual. Need pic

It'a a 2009 Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon. So far, I like it. It does have the 3.6L V6, but mine's automatic. Hell, last night after I got home, I was already looking at aftermarket stuff. Mainly an exhaust system, cause the muffler on it is fairly rusty, so it'll probably need to be changed soon.

Correction, it has a 3.8L V6.

It's a dark green. That was one of the things that drew me to it. It's not a very common color around here.

I might look into a snorkel, but I don't plan on doing any serious offroading soon, so I won't really need it. I think that I'm gonna work on the minor engine stuff first, such as intake, exhaust, tuner, etc. Then I'll probably figure out some more to do to the engine, before I work on a lift kit or anything.

Also, where I live, the muffler isn't optional. Emissions testing says I have to have one..

I like the plan, any pics? My dad's is silver. Is yours hard or soft top? My dad wants to do a 3in. lift on his...Im pretty sure theres a plan to modify the engine somewhere down the road.

It might surprise you how much offroading you can do right out of the box with it. My Fiancee has a 2012 Rubicon Unlimited with 3" of lift and 33's and its a beast off road.
