Installed the Rubicon takeoffs springs and shocks on my 2018 JLU sport. The Rubicon springs numbers are 68253591aa, 68253592aa Rear and 68253661ac and 68253662ac Front. Along with the springs and shocks I also installed the Mopar 2 inch lift lower control arms number (82215398AB) and a Daystar 3/4 inch lift kit (DAYKJ09181BK) I also installed Rusty’s front track bar brace (RC-TB7500-JL). The change out took about 5 hours. I also had the jeep realigned and with the new lower control arms the caster came in at 6. The Jeep tracks straight and steers very well. Here are the height numbers before and after the install.

Before Right front 37 1/8 Left front 37 1/8 Right rear 37 1/2 Left rear 37 5/8

After Right front 39 1/4 Left front 39 1/4 Right rear 39 1/4 Left rear 39 3/8

A 2 inch lift using mostly Mopar parts. $200.00 for the Rubicon takeoffs, $50.00 for the Daystar 3/4 lift kit, $70.00 for the lower control arms and $100 for the track bar mount for a total of $425.00 plus $85.00 for the alignment.

Did you do the work yourself or have a shop do it? Looking at picking up a Rubi Take-off suspension for $100 off of Craigslist.

Also wondering what the benefit is of the track bar brace?

What makes it a great deal? I am planning to get Rubicon wheels, tires, shocks and springs for my JLU sport S too.
I got the springs and shocks for $60. That's a lot cheaper than the norm. It was a local craigslist find, just like my tires and wheels ($800).

Wow indeed a great deal. I could not find shocks and springs lower than 300 and wheels and tires lower than 1600 :(

Option 4 is a good affordable option. Here’s my Sport S with Rubi suspension and 1/2” coil spacers.

This is the exact look I'm going for right now and it seems super affordable. Do you know if the rubi suspension you had was just a standard package or if the rubi had a hardtop, tow package, etc?

The suspension came off a Rubi with hardtop and steel bumper group.

Option 4 would be the best and cheapest option. you can find the takeoffs in the members marketplace section, it just depends on who is selling their takeoffs in your area or how far your willing to travel to get them. I'm in florida and I just put my Rubi take offs up for sale. The suspension should give you up to 1.5 inch lift which will be plenty to put the 33"s on
