I picture the pope out burning laps around Vatican City afterhours for fun. I know he's a regular dude like us. Free car and you're the Pope? What's going to stop you?

Rubi wheel spied

I dunno. That looks like a 31 or maybe a 32" tire. I think it is not a Rubi, but maybe a Sahara with an off-road tire option? Other Rubis have shown larger tires.

If there is a budget Rubi, similar to the Willys, then I’m here for it. Lol

The elevated ride height says "Rubi" to me. I'm not sure how I feel about the two-tone treatment applied to the wheels though. Looks a bit funky.

Maybe. The high front fender says it, too. Not sure why it has or at least appears to have smaller tires.

A budget Rubi In the JK IS a Willys. You get the tires, wheels, shocks, and maybe rock guards, but no lockers or swaybar disconnect, or front D44. Without those things, though, I wouldn't call it a Rubi. It dillutes the brand. It would, however, have been nice to see a rear locker in it.

My "budget" Rubi JL will delete the leather and hopefully won't have painted fenders and just a soft top. It will have all the Rubi off road hardware and the top nav/sound system.

Looks pretty maxed out under the third brake light. I figure FCA designed that light to be over the largest tire they'll put on them stock.

Rubis typically come with BFG KM2 Mud Terrain and those look like KO2 All Terrain tires, so I don't think it's a Rubicon.

Depends on what Rubi options are important to you. You can build a 'budget Rubi' right now out of a 2 Door Sport S, you won't get the nicer Rubicon interior trim, the sway bar disconnect, 4:10 axel ratio, electronically locking diffs or Dana 44 front diff but if you order the 32-inch Tire and Wheel group you get the BFG BSW Off-Road Tires and Rubi wheels along with the Performance suspension which is standard on the Rubi though FCA don't go into details on the order sheet as to what exactly this in the performance suspension package for $400. And all Wranglers have Dana 44 rear diffs.

The problem with the sport is that it looks like a sport no matter how it’s optioned. The Willys has the extra blacked out flare plus actual rubi wheels to make it pop

How about the axle ratio, 32" tires , 6spd, needs 3:73. That's now $700 option.
Rubicon is in a class by itself, 4:10, a well thought out Pre-Packaged "Deal". Pay Now, or Pay Later...
