Question Rubicon Shocks Same on 2dr and 4dr?

I've tried like hell to find part numbers to compare as well as search different forums but can't seem to find the answer. I realize there are no such thing as rubicon springs, but I know the rubicons have the hd red shocks.

So.. my question is are the valving's different? I have a set of 2dr Rubicon shocks sitting in the garage, and want to throw them on my 4dr X. But want to verify that in fact the 2dr and 4dr rubicon shocks are the same part number.

Anyone here know? Or can point me in the right direction?

I put my 2door Rubi shocks from our 2012 on my buddies 4door Rubi and they work great. His had 60,000 miles on it and they made it handle & ride better.

Oly4x4 for the win I gave them a call about some other shocks they had, since the ones i have are shot, and the red ones i have are likely on their way as well.. got to talking with them. They had some hardly used Rubicon 4dr shocks that got taken off the Owners 2013 Rubicon JK8 conversion.. read more here.. They had the wheels off of it as well, but 1400 bucks was too much for me this time..

Olympic 4×4 JK 8 | Olympic 4x4 Supply

Installation proceeding now a long with my new steering stabilzer.. my oem has seen better days..

140 bucks later and it feels great ... thanks for the info on the shocks.

2013 Rubicon JKU Shocks on 2007 JKU X - 100 bucks at Oly4x4
Pro Comp es2000 steering stabilizer - 40 at 4wheelparts

not sure about the stabilizer I got, but they had it sitting there at 4wheelparts so I threw it on, seems to work better than my oem, but i'm concerned that i got what i paid for already, the paint is chipping off just from the 10 mile test drive I did with my shocks. If it's just the paint I'm ok with that, hope the shock last longer than the paint that's on it.

That doesn't help anyone because it isn't accurate information.
