Rubicon shocks and springs
 
Would it be worth it to change the shocks and springs from a '12 Sport unlimited to the shocks and springs from an '11 Rubicon unlimited. I found some for 125.



Thanks

JD

The shocks would be worth it. Rubicon springs are no different than Sport or Sahara springs. check the last 2 numbers of the model number in your springs and the donor springs. The higher the number, the taller/stiffer the coil.

I am hoping that many new rubicon owners get 35" tires and wheels for Christmas. I am checking Craigslist for Rubi tire/wheel and suspension take offs. I am hoping to have both a street and off road tire configuration.

:D Thats a great idea, check ebay/CL and the JK forums "for sale" sections-

Sometimes you can even find LOCAL sales that will save shipping, but

If you want on-road/off-road wheels/tires-----try to stay in the same size tire range !

Good luck

Lol. My stock Rubi tires/wheels (w/appx 300 miles on them) come off for good on Tuesday. Where do you live?

I just upgraded my suspension to an AEV premium 3.5 lift, will be replacing my wheels and tires in a week or two... but I live in deep south Texas...
