minor gains are what I been told. 1" in best case. But this may be to do stock springs that have sagged over time. Thus, if the springs are free add them and the BB and that might be nice.

This is correct. The Rubicon springs give the same ride height as other TJ's from the factory, but have a higher spring rate, and therefore will give you a small lift if you are replacing springs that have sagged over time.

If you have to ask what it is or what it does, you don't need it, and you will need help to install it!

It's not worth the work if you ask me. You'd get the same amount of lift with a 1" BL.

I disagree with it not being worth the work, if you are doing a 2 in. BB. I would probably wait to do it until you did the BB but since you already have the springs out you might as well swap them out with the Rubi's. And you can still do the 1 in. BL to get that extra bit of clearance!
