I have a 2013 Sport S Unlimited. I found a good deal on brand new 2013 Rubicon Unlimited shock takeoffs. If I only swap the shocks, what will it do to the ride?

It won't change a lot. You will notice less 'floating' and it will be a bit more controlled in turns. Rubi shocks are an upgrade to the normal sport shocks, but you won't see a totally different ride.

Yeah I a JK 2 door sport and went to Rubi shocks and springs. It tightened the ride up a bit but in a good way for sure. Are you changing springs as well? If not you may not notice much at all because the rubi springs are typically stiffer than regular sport springs.

I put rubi shocks on my 2013 jku sport and found them to be a nice upgrade. Much less chatter on the washboard roads.

Thanks guys. I picked the shocks up last night. $50 for all 4, less than 50 miles on them supposedly.

I probably won't swap the springs because I really don't want to raise it. It's perfect for me with the 305/70's.
