2003 Wrangler Rubicon TJ
The Rubicon is a four-wheeling prodigy. It's as close as any auto manufacturer has ever come to offering a "built" 4x4, again showing Jeep was listening to customers. Front and rear Dana 44s with 4.10:1 gears and selectable lockers. A 4.00:1 transfer case with a fixed rear output and beefed up driveshafts. Thirty-one-inch Goodyear MT/R tires. Body armor-you all know the drill. It was a big and bold departure from the Detroit norm of pasting on poseur decals, adding white-letter tires and calling it a trail rig. It was the most significant development of the original Jeep.
