Rubicon gears/install kits different?

I've got a non rubi and I purchased a geared front axle.... So I need to re gear the rear obviously. But i'm looking at all these gears and install kits and some say rubicon, some dont.... what gives?

Yukon High Performance Yukon Ring & Pinion gear set Dana Spicer 44 JK Rubicon 4.88 ratio (YG_D44JK_488RUB)

Motive Gear JK Non Rubicon Dana 44 Rear Master Overhaul Kit - MGRA28RNJKMKT

The front gear set and possibly some bearings/races are different. The Rubis have a D44 center section up front, everything else has a D30.

Edit - Crap sorry I see you meant rear only

The master installation kits are different, between the Dana 44 Rubicon rear and non-Rubicon rear diff.

Yes, the kits are different. The only difference in the kit is the carrier side bearings, otherwise everything else is the same.
