hack99 Yes, take it off road and learn how to drive it. hookup with someone in your area and follow them around, watch and learn. It'll do amazing stuff the way it is. Once you are seasoned, you'll know what it needs. Biggest thing I can say is go/crawl around slowly, it's not a race.

An Evap skid is a good addition....

Most people recommend regearing and lockers too. But it's what you want. His Rubi has lockers....and probably 4:10 gears

x14293797594534 on the wheel it stock and it'll tell you what you need.... You'll go places in it in stock form that will have you and your friends completely amazed...

Off topic, but I still yell like a fan at a football game when I read or hear stuff like that.

Armadaskier I have a 2010 JKU. My list went as follows:
1. Differential armor for front and rear
2.Hi-lift jack and good recovery gear(winch isn't needed just recommended by most)
3.sway bar disconnects(you don't need since you have a rubi)
4.better rock rails since you will be high centering with a 4 door, trust me
5. Good tires(I recommend mtr Kevlar)
6.Snorkel

Don't worry about skid plates since the factory ones are fine. As far as a lift I added a 2" budget lift but it's not necessary. Your mods are based on what you do though and how you want your jeep. I have an auto with 3.73 gears so I got a superchip flashpaq to help with power and mpg since it's my daily driver. Most people recommend regearing and lockers too. But it's what you want.

LBrito Rock sliders... better ones than the stock. Then wheel it for a while to determine what/if you really need anything else. Really depends on what type of wheeling you'll be doing. The stock Rubi is pretty capable on its own.

Car123 The Rubicon comes with rock sliders. What front bumper would be good and would i need a lift
