Rubicon Shocks

M going to install a Teraflex 1.5 spacer level kit ion my 2013 Unlimited Sport. I also am going to put on some Procomp 7031 in a 17x9 wheel with 33x12.50 tires.

I can get a set of take off Rubicon shocks with less than 15 miles on them for $70. Would this be a worth while buy to replace my stock shocks with 27,000 miles on them?

Also, I have the 19/59 springs in case that matters.

Thank u

I'm thinking about just pulling the trigger since they are brand new for only $70!

I have a 2013 non-modded Rubicon. I drive a lot on highway, (mountain type driving).
Several times a year, up in our mountain areas, I will go on some runs. Wooded area's, and some mild to moderate rock climbing.
I am very happy with my Rubicon shocks, both on and off road!!!!!!

So for $70, go grab them before somebody else does.....

I posted too late but I would have suggested spending $124 and getting some Rancho RS5000X shocks.

I bought some rubicon take off shocks. Also have 18/60 springs. Great shocks and a huge upgrade from the factory sport shocks.

For a stock shock the Rubi shocks are actually very good. They perform well on the road and as long as you don't push them hard off road for extended periods they also perform well there. I prefer the Bilsteins but the Rubi shocks have a more compliant ride and for $70 you will be happy with them.

This will be a DD with very rare off-road so I hope the Rubi Shocks will be good.
