Stroking the unicorn

Post by akadeutsch » September 29th, 2016, 8:27 am

I have wanted an 06 LJ for the past ten years. But they have held their value to the point of my not being able to afford one for the past 10 years. What's not to like. 10.5 inch longer wheel base than a standard Rubi. 06 was the last year of the 2 door unlimited and also the last year of the epic straight 6. An 06 LJ has been my unicorn for the past 3 years. And i am please to say that i finally found it. And with only 69,000 miles. I plan to keep the original drive train with low miles since there were only 6742 unlimited rubicons produced in 06. Since I parked my already stroked WJ when i bought this new truck, i just gotta make time to do the swap. And get the other car running so i have a ride to drive while i do the work. Wish me luck.

If I ever get a Wrangler it'll be the LJ Rubicon in blue. :rockout:

Very nice. I have an '05 LJ Rubicon 6 speed in light khaki. I bought it from the original owner in 2007 when it had just 7200 miles on it. It now has 142k, and will be getting a stroker refresh on the original block & head. If you can, have yours dyno'd with the stock drive train and document what HP it (isn't) making - lol. I think the '05/'06 4.0 engines were the lowest performing iteration of them all. They certainly got the worst factory cam.
