Overlander Jeep Rubicon Unlimitted (built) 2014


Life changes force a sale before the truck could be used for a trip. ... My true truck heart will always be with Defenders (110's in particular...Camel Trophy version being my very favorite of all time) - the lack of a current, legal US version has really made me frustrated to say the least....but I am not alone... (priors were RRC LWB, D2, 110). My very short time with a 110 without really any insulation made me realize that I am not able to DD a defender (at least not that one) and regretted selling my D2 a lot. That is just my reality.

Short version:

48,400 (buy it now). Built up price in the 57's ignoring labor and shipping. See the listing for details with pricing of things. It is my DD. Airbags, warranty, etc. Would have bought a green oval product if one existed that was as "rugged"...the LR4 just did not cut it for me and the local option/dealer was just not near enough to work.


Use this link to have buyer protection, financing, etc. If you bid, the reserve is predictably a little lower. Rules prevent me saying the number.

Loaded Jeep Rubicon Unl. Anvil with lots of mods. No mechanical issues. No gremlins. No squeaks. No nada.

Great truck. *biased as heck of course* It is rumored ninjas use these on this forum.

2014 Jeep Rubicon Unlimited Data Sheet (Anvil with brown leather, loaded and fully equipped for anything)

Condition: Super clean. No damage. No dings. No rust. No smoking.

Features: See the long version.

History: I am the original owner. Bought new from the local dealer.

Title may take up to 30 days to be delivered to the buyer after FULL payment is in the possession of the seller. Buyer must provide a mailing address. Things should move much more quickly than that, but this is to allow for delays due to the bank. Buyer must provide proof of insurance and a driver's license (to be photocopied, please provide these to speed things along) to seller if driving the truck from this location as the form of pick-up.

Note, Jeep is being driven and mileage will be higher at purchase. It will almost certainly be under 18k if purchased before 12/31/14.

The long version:

Many Jeeps come up for auction. Not all are real Rubicons. This one is sort of special because it reflects more of an overlander’s approach than a rock or mud junkie’s approach. As such, it is a modern Land Rover D110 sort of build.

No accidents. Clean Carfax. Etc. I am the original owner.

The project goals were:

To be tasteful so you can DD it and not look unprofessional.

To not be so extreme as to cause the stock parts to break like big tires can do or very high lifts (I did not want a monster truck Jeep).

To have only the best accessories when possible and not to be limited to one brand as is all too often the case these days.

To look great and drive extremely well.

To be reliable.

To get only the best care and parts.

To be family friendly.

To be safe.

To be good on dirt roads and snow above rocks and mud.

To address all known weaknesses in the design.

To have no rattles.

It is fast, civilized, and able to go anywhere reasonable. It is built for overlanding AND DD use. It gets compliments from anyone who knows Jeeps. It is balanced looking.

The basic truck is outlined on the window sticker scans. $45,030.

All prices in this ad are in US Dollars.

The build:

Labor costs and shipping are not part of the summation of items and costs for the truck. Those were substantial and if you were to build up a truck, these are a major cost. My estimate is 3,000 total for these issues alone. Probably more.
