Hey guys, new to the forum. I'm Hoping to get some expert advice on the Rubicon!

I've test driven 2011 and 2012 Rubicons. I prefer the Rubicons over the plain Foremans because I'll be doing heavy work on rugged mountains and the Rubicon transmission is ideal for that.

The only thing is it has a carb and I've heard horror stories about keeping the carb cleaned, rebuilt, etc. Even the dealer is advising me to not buy the Rubicon because of the carb. They told me they charge 300 dollars each time the carb needs cleaning and they say it will need cleaning a lot, even during the first year warranty period. They have a lot of 2011 Foremans they are trying to clear out, so maybe that's why they are pushing me to those, not sure.

So I wanted to ask Rubicon owners here? Are the carbs on the Rubicons that bad? I really love the Rubicons transmission. It's exactly what I need for this sort of heavy work, but I don't want to buy something that's going to have carb problems.

Thanks a lot!
