4dr Rubi springs and shocks

Is any one out there really interested in putting 4dr rubi springs in their 2dr? I put a lift in my Jeep and am wondering if If I should sell em or just toss em?

If you don't even wan't cash for em, toss em in the Free section. I'm sure someone will snap em up

Actually, are they for a rubi with a tow package? I think they're the toughest springs available for the JK.

Would Rubi springs add lift to a base JKu on their own? If so, how much lift?

I think you would end up with maybe a 1/2" or so. Putting them on a 2dr is where you would really see some improvement since they're so much beefier than the 2DR base model springs.

Uhm... there's no interest ... you should send them to me for uh, proper disposal... yeah, that's the ticket

Thanks Dan. I was looking at the Rock Krawler 2.5" Stock Mod which consists of 4 springs front track bar and rear track bar relocation bracket. Was wondering if the Rubi springs would provide at least 1.5" lift but sounds like it is not gonna happen with the 4-door.

sorry for the temp. hi-jack....back to topic <-

I know the 19 front coils and 60 rear coils get you a 1-2" lift on the base sport models. Swapping out my springs for them on Monday along with 1 3/4 Daystar spacers. Paid 155$ from Jeep for all 4. Good cheap way to get a little lift in my opinion. Also got rid of the junk shocks that came with my 2010 sport and put on some Rancho 9000xl 4" lift shocks today. What a difference in ride control, much more control and a sturdy feeling. Cant wait to get the lift on so I dont have to worry about bottoming them out.
