Shouldn't be any difference... It's just springs, shocks, bump stops and control arms.... I just put a set of rubicon springs under my base model SE with no modification at all....so I can't imagine theres any thing different... Other than spring stiffness rates for the heavier rubicon

I would guess any parts that connect to the axles might not be interchangeable between a rubicon and a standard tj because the rubicon has the dana 44 axles. I do know that the rear drive shaft mounts differently at the transfer case on the rubicon model.

True... But the basic concept of lifting it should be the same....

the only differences of major impact when lifting are:

1. the t-case rear output is a fixed flange, therefore doesn't require a SYE, since there is no slip yoke to eliminate. depending on lift height it may still require a CV driveshaft however.
2. speedo correction is done with electronic recalibration methods, there's no speedo gear to swap.

and there is a SLIGHT chance you wont get as much lift as advertised by the manufacurer .... due to the rubi springs being stiffer, and most kits dont specify rubi or sport/sahara/4cyl

this is rare ... since with most lifts u get more than what is advertised
