Classified Find: 2005 Jeep Wrangler Rocky Mountain Edition

With winter fast approaching, now probably isn’t the time to think about hitting the beach to catch some waves. However, if hitting the slopes for a spot of skiing is more to your liking, this Jeep Wrangler would offer the perfect way to get there. This is a Rocky Mountain Edition, which was offered between 2003 and 2005. It is spotlessly clean and has a genuine 93,000 miles on the clock. The Jeep is located in Okatie, South Carolina, and has been listed for sale here at Barn Finds Classifieds. All you need to do is hand the owner $18,750, and you could be driving away in this beauty.

The Wrangler is finished in Flame Red, and it presents beautifully. The paint holds an impressive shine, and there are no signs of significant marks or dings. The panels are laser straight, while the top appears to be perfect. There is no rust to worry about, and the distinctive decals show no signs of fading or crazing. The owner has fitted some pretty stunning chrome bumpers, along with side steps and grabbers. The last two items are smart and practical additions, especially if you are like me and are not that tall. A lift kit has been installed, along with a set of American Racing wheels. These are wrapped in Lion Sport 33×12.5 tires, and the spare has been swapped to match.

Powering the Jeep is the 4.0-liter “Power Tech” 6-cylinder engine. This is backed by the optional 6-speed manual transmission, while a dual-range transfer case helps this baby get into some pretty remote locations. The engine should be producing around 190hp, but its strong suit is its torque figure. With 235 ft/lbs at the driver’s disposal, these are exceptionally flexible. When you couple those figures with the lift kit and the better wheels and tires, there is no doubt that it would allow this Wrangler to go places that a standard offering wouldn’t. The Jeep has a genuine 93,000 miles on the clock, which means that it should be able to offer its next owner years of reliable service. It has recently been serviced, and the owner says that it is ready to rock.

The Rocky Mountain Edition brought with it exclusive seat upholstery, along with a few added extras. This included a premium sound system with a subwoofer. The stereo has been upgraded and now features a Kenwood CD player and a Kicker sub to replace the original unit. The owner describes the overall condition as being good and given the state of the rest of the vehicle, this is a claim that I find easy to believe.

Some off-roaders are limited by their size. Big and cumbersome vehicles will always provide limited access to some areas due to their physical size. Vehicles like this 2005 Jeep Wrangler offer a compelling alternative because they can go where their larger brethren can’t. This vehicle is a perfect example of this philosophy. The mechanical upgrades that it has received takes it to another level regarding the vital question of off-road abilities. It is an eye-catching classic that would be perfect for finding your way to the ski fields now and to the beaches when the weather turns warm again. That has to make it a tempting proposition.

    Out here in sunny CO, we work on a lot of two things: Subarus and Jeeps. The Jeep 4.0 was probably their best offering ever and sad to see it go.
