Ok, what's the Difference between Red Rubicon shocks and the Silver Fox Rubicon shocks on the gladiator?
It's not the fox shocks, I think a majority of it is the longer wheelbase/rear arms etc. My gladiator with a 4.5" Skyjacker(temporary lift) with 40s rides better than most of the recent JLs I've been in (Even stock). The fox are definitely higher quality than the JL Rubi shocksone is a fox shock and the other is not.. Seriously though. I just went and test drove a Rubicon JLU and Rubicon Gladiator back to back.... HOLY HELL the gladiator rides WAY BETTER!!!!! Sure you can say the longer wheel base and longer control arms help, but I think the shocks payed a big roll in that. Even my wife commented on how much nicer the Gladiator rode... Now I just need to sell a kid or kidney to buy them both.
I agree on the rear dampening on the truck. Of the showroom floor the truck felt a little "floaty" in the rear.The JT Rubicon shocks are Fox 2.0 Performance Series Shocks. They ride pretty nice, but are a bit light on dampening in the rear in my opinion. They are much better than anything which has ever been put on one from the factory for sure.
