daggo66 I gained 2" from a spring swap and I later added 3/4" spacers.

What else would you need w/ more than 1.5" of lift? Lots of people run higher BBs w/ nothing else. I'm curious as I gained more than that from a swap.

Daggo, didn't you do a swap? I don't remember if you added anything.

Yes, because it is EXTREMELY rare for a Wrangled to come from the factory with 19/60. Rubicons do not come with them as a rule, so you do everyone a disservice by calling them Rubicon springs. If those ate truly 19/60's from a production Wrangler, that's probably only the 3rd documented case on this forum. Now if you want an estimated gain, we need to know the numbers from your original coils.

as it sits today, should I use rubi springs

I had all of the mods I thought I wanted completed yesterday

When I picked her up from the shop this morning I asked stupidly if he had any take offs from a JKU Rubi. Of course he said yes.

I've gone from this:


to this:


I removed the side steps, installed olympic sliders.
Replaced antenna with a stubby.
Replaced 18" sahara wheels with 2013 Rubi takeoffs and KMs.
3/4 front spaces for leveling.
Debadged.
Removed silver trim pieces on bumpers.

The only thing I'm contemplating for now is a LoD lightweight midlength bumper.

My question is, I plan on keeping these wheels and tires until I need new tires from wear; if I swap my springs and shocks for the JKU takeoffs I should get 1.5 inches in lift.

Will that make it look goofy with these wheels/tires?

Such a good deal on the takeoffs!

What to do?

Chris
