JeepSpeedShop sometimes sells some engines and parts like that when doing conversions. Don't know about the suspensions.

Where are you located? I'm putting a lift kit on my Rubi this weekend.
Shocks and springs coming off. Less than 4K miles on them.

I am in Greensboro NC.

A bunch of vendors do have "Garage Sales" and blemished and discontinued stock. I know Teraflex, Poison Spyder, and River Raider do this kind of thing. Check all their sites and get on all their Facebook pages for updates.

Only 200 miles.
UPS ground shouldn't be too much.
Or you can drive up. Either way I'm sure we can come to an agreement.
Do you need all 4 shocks and springs?

I got my lift kit from Marcus at River City Offroad. :grinpimp:

If you're hoping for extra length with the Rubi shocks I'm not sure you'll get any real useable amount.

Marcus
Thats what I thought...even with shock extensions mine are too short with ~2.5" lift

If no one here can help you should try Craigslist.

My wife probably is hopeing for extra length:D but I'm just wanting a little better shock for very little money.

Do you guys think with the added lift from the unlimited springs and the TF leveling kit I should go with a 2-3" lift shock or will the stock Rubi shocks be ok?

You will be fine with stock shocks in terms of length, but the offer here from AustinJeeper is pretty sweet.

FWIW I've run a 2.5" BB on top of Rubi springs without shock extensions for street use only before. No issues but not something I'd do for extended periods or mall baja runs.

All factory JK shocks should be the same length. The springs vary only slightly in height.

I just swaped out my stock shocks for some rubi's and you can tell they are a tad better, but I wouldn't pay a c-note for them. If you get a good deal jump on them but don't go broke for'em.
I got springs and shocks with 700 miles on them for $50, off Craigslist.
I was also hoping for one more inch of down travel but I don't think there is.
