Just saw an article on a Rubicon version of the TJ for 2003. Front and rear air lockers!!! Dana 44's front and rear, 31" Goodyear MTR's. Sounds like a sweet stock setup to me!!

I saw that little article as well. Sounds nice if you want to build a mild but reliable trail rig. The lockers and standard D44s (not just an option for the rear anymore) is a nice deal however.

Just read the blurb in 4wheeler today. Looks like a great starting point! Nice to *FINALLY* see one of the major makers put out a vehicle that is aimed at true off road use. But I'm holding my breath to see what price they put on it at the lot. Jeep is going the way of Toyota, getting real damn proud of their products! I mean come on, 15k for a stripped Wrangler?! Lets see what they ask for this thing. I'm worried that they may price it above what you could do the upgrade for yourself. We'll see. Let's hope it takes off and the rest of the major auto makers discover that there is a market for true off roaders and stop building cars with truck beds and a transfer case.

Well price could be an issue but just thank God that another "SUV" (I dont really classify the jeep as an SUV) DID NOT GO TO IFS!! In fact Jeep is going the opposite direction than the pavement pounders. Gotta love that! :):

Any idea what the price tag is on this rig? I was looking into getting a Jeep Wrangler, and if the price is reasonable, I might consider looking into it! I love my Dodge and Jeep is part of the Chrysler family!!!
:D:

They didnt say how much in the article but I would say the extra parts will add on 1 to 2 grand to the regular Jeep price.

I wouldn't be surprised if that thing is close to 30k. I mean a loaded Sahara is about 24k, for crying out loud.

That thing rocks though. D44's, air lockers, 4.10's, 4:1 low range. All you need is a 3-4" lift and some 33's, and you have the ultimate trail rig with a warranty.

It'd be nice if you could get it with no options for under 20k.

My guess is it will be about 25 grand. The Jeep engineer that brought it there was laughing at a 30 thousand dollar comment. He just said "it will be more reasonable than you think."

I also saw that the price will be in the mid 20's. Not bad for what your getting.
