Rubi rail take offs

Whats a fair price for a used set of jku rubi rails?

I know this is vague and will depend on condition but any input is appreciated!

I paid a $100 for my 4dr, but I've seen them go for 150-225$. I think it depends on how long you can wait.

I paid $125 for a set that were basically new takeoffs with the hardware included. That was after waiting a couple months to show up in my area on CL

Have you landed them on a rock? I would say there more then for looks, they are pretty beefy and far better than having nothing.

I bought a set for 3 4 packs of Beer... was going to mod them but ended up buying LOD... now I have two sets of 4 DR OEM rails... and they do work especially on my old 2DR... tested them some on my JKU and I wouldn't wheel with out some kind on rock rail.
I would say no more then $100...

I paid $50.00. You should be able to get them for $50 - $100. Don't pay more than that.

No i went over a fallen tree off camber and slid across it on my rubi rail and bashed it into my tub on my last 4-door jk. If you plan on using your jeep like it was meant to be dont use the stock rubi rails.

For those of you saying, don't pay more than 'x' amount, I really think the price depends on your area.

I patiently waited 3 months for a set to show up, and I expanded my search on CL to 100 miles outside my area. I even checked in cities where I was traveling in my jeep to see if I could buy the rails while I was passing through. There were a few listed but in the $150-$200 range. One guy in Nashville insisted he wouldn't take a dime less than $250, lol. They're probably still sitting in his garage unsold.

If I had turned down the set I bought because they were $125 instead of $75, I might still be waiting 2 years later. Of course, it helped that I sold my plastic steps on CL for $125 also.

Rubi rails + Ace rails = winner

In fact, I'd be willing to bet a large percentage of Rubi rail takeoffs are bought by people that have also bought Ace rails.

Ace rails on the way. That's why I was asking! 😀

That's what I did. Just need to trim them down before I can pop them on.

Good idea. I had to take mine off to cut them and then re-install again because I bought the rails before I bought my 35's.

Bought Ace rails - installed
Bought Rubi rails - uninstall Ace rails to install Rubi rails
Bought 35's - uninstall Ace rails and Rubi rails to trim, then reinstall

I do everything backwards.

I bought the rails before I decided to get 35s. Got the bigger tires 2 weeks later so had to remove the rails. Poor planning on my part.

Having owned a 2DR and now a 4DR I would add that the 4DR rails will flex more and don't give as good of protection as the 2 DR ones, but they do protect areas... at least that's my experience and I wheel pretty hard..
I wouldn't wheel without something protecting the panels and pinch seams.. at least wheel hard..
I did almost go with the ACE+Rubi setup but elected to go LOD ... several buddies have them and love them...

hope you find some...

I've been watching for a set of 2-door take-off's since June. I'd even go with 4DR rails I would cut if I find the right price.

One CL ad locally was asking for $375. I had to contact them to see if that was a typo. A new set from Q-tec is less than that.
