Regarding the small lift on the '13 Jeep Rubicon 10th Anniversary, what are the unique lift components? Is it just the springs? Are there any other suspension differences? The lift seems like it's more than 1" compared to the other stock Jeeps that I've seen.

Second that! Any one who has done the conversion to the 10a springs, did you do just springs, or are there other parts that need swapped?

I did the 10a spring and shock lift on my Sahara. It is only the springs that lift it. The springs about 1.5" longer than the Sahara stock springs.
Were your shocks the same as the sahara? Or a different part number? Can you,post pics? And did the 10a suspension level your sahara out? Thanks

you wouldnt need shocks until you got to 2.5 inches or more of lift. and even at 2.5 stock shocks work.....just not a lot of droop....

rubicons have better shocks though, so if you can get them....theyre better than some of the aftermarket shocks. :)

The springs 6006 and 6009. 10As use different numbers than standard wranglers...not sure why. I used the 10a shocks as well. I have a thread on here somewhere with the part numbers. I have AEV Pintlers and 33 Duratracs so mine sits a little higher than a stock 10A.

I believe the 10A springs are longer, because the tires on the 10A are actually smaller than the regular rubi tires. The taller springs make up for the shorter tire in over height of the jeep. Or so I've been told

No components, the only suspension/height difference between a standard Rubi and 10A Rubi are springs (and tires).

So the 10A springs + shocks should lift a Sahara Unlimited at least 1.5 inches (even if you have the heavier springs with tow package)? I like the idea of getting the added lift with better quality parts and not having to deal with additional components.

It won't be 1.5 inches. It would be less than that...and would depend on what springs you currently have. Plus, 10A springs vary...so you have to figure out which ones are the stiffest.

Yup, that's what I'm sayin.
I have a set of 6006 and 6009, I have the shocks as well. I wonder if the shocks ate slightly longer for added droop.
The 10a definitely sits higher, especially on the drone even with smaller tires. There is a suspension advantage.

Why does it seem like chrysler just puts random ass springs in the wranglers? WTF is with that anyway?

If you have max tow, you should have stiffer springs than you would have without it. Dunno about jeeps but pickup trucks with towing packages have more factory rake.... lol.
