2004 Rubicon.... what to look for.

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Guy brought me a 2004 Rubicon to go over for him. Runs and drives ok but has a fuel leak, some squeaks, and the rear brake is frozen up. Any thing I should look for while I'm going over it. It turns so easy compared to my 05 Foreman 500 with the locker in it.  Aint gonna lie, I could get use to the auto shifting. I really get tired of my shifter wearing out and getting loose....

By 2004 I think they'd gone to the updated oil pump, and the early models had issues from the early oil pump designs.


If it runs and drives ok, run it.  You can swap disc brakes from 05-11 Foreman, 05-14 Rubicons, and 06-current Rincons if you can find them.  Need knuckles, hub/rotors, and calipers.  They'll bolt on at the ball joints.
