Last year I came across a '04 Rubicon (auto) that had been t-boned early its life with less than 10k miles. I picked it up cheap with the intention of swapping its axles (transfer case, locker pump, etc) to my '04 Sport (also auto, no 44 in rear) as long as everything was in good condition... and wow are they!
I've read lots of threads, and some not agreeing with others so to avoid another migraine I figure I would start this thread so I can understand it! And so I could post pics of my progress as well!
So without any further ado…
1) Are there any differences from the Sport (just the frame at this point) than the Rubicon frame?
A local “jeep” guy says they are, but they look the same to me, what’s the truth here? I wouldn’t think there would be since they aren't the unlimited model. Am I right?
From what I can tell, the Rubi axles should swap right over. Not forgetting to mention the transfer case and of course the locker pump and wiring (thinking of just putting the Rubi harness in for the best fit).
Thoughts? (I’m prepared for massive public flogging here)
