Looking at and thinking about replacing my 10 Sahara shocks with Rubi take-offs. Pros and Cons? Will I gain anything? What would I lose in ride? TIA

From the reading I have done, Rubi's are mono tube. Sahara and below are twin tube. Sahara and below are black, Rubi's are red. Rubi shocks will NOT be as smooth and forgiving a ride around town as your standard shocks. Yet they will be better for offroading.

Thanks for the info. I have the tow package, not sure if that is an upgrade in shocks on the Sahara or not. It's my DD so not sure I want to give a lot up in the way of comfort on my ride and I don't wheel near as hard as some do.

only the rubicon has the special shocks. my sahara shocks are so perfect i hope they last forever. dont waste your money unless you're desperate for a mod.

The difference is NEGLIGIBLE. Save your $, and keep your shocks under warranty. The only real improvement would be from going to a GOOD aftermarket shock. Although red makes things faster, and the Rubi shocks ARE slightly better, the difference, as I said, is minute. If they're free or under $50 shipped, MAYBE it's worth it. Otherwise, save the $- Mark W.
