Possibly. I know the guy fairly well and seen his rig it’s definitely a Rubi. No tow or steel bumper but it did have a hard top. This one has got me stumped.
Who knows about 21s. They did add the 3.6 eTorque. May be different combo for that. :facepalm:

Rene,

Just for reference here's a pic of my rig getting home after a typical afternoon adventure in the foothills and mountains of my Colorado back yard. I went with the 2.5" (actually almost 3") Mopar lift instead of Rubi takeoffs. That's because I opted for the 35" tires. Everything looks great at the moment, but as soon as I add the steel front bumper and winch, I too may be adding 1/4 to 1/2 inch spacers up front. Hopefully the nose down result may not be that bad and so I can do without. We'll soon see.

So many (many) options.
Good luck.

Jay

Sweet ride!
That is strange as those numbers seem to be in the JLU Sahara range. I wouldn't install them since you really won't gain any lift there, if you indeed have the Red Rubi shocks all you need are springs. Of course getting a new Rubi take off set from a heavy 4dr Rubi and having an extra set of shocks isn't a bad thing either :)
True! I’m not really into them for anyone so no harm no foul. Might just pick some up off of rubtrix since I haven’t been seeing to many avalible around my area.

Tried to do a little searching regarding shock numbers and Mopar has really made it tough :(
Entering my shock #s in google ends up w/ nothing on the Mopar sites, but on ebay you see all the Rubicon take-off sets w/ my part #s

thanks for looking into it more BL! Yea I think on the 21s the part numbers might have changed. A member on here has a set of take offs from a 2021. I’ve reached out so I can compare. Mopar just threw a curve ball at us going forward... :/

I did some spring coil wire diameter measurements a year ago. Comparing my Rubicon 2-door with tow package, hard top, and steel bumper group to an identical optioned 4-door model. I found the 4-door front spring wire diameter a tad SMALLER and the rear spring diameter a tad BIGGER than my 2-door springs. All other dimensions of the springs were identical. In laymens terms, my 2-door front coils were a very slightly stiffer spring rate, but the rears were a very slightly softer spring rate.

Intresting.... So I heard back from the forum member with the 2021 takeoffs and is pair is 89/90 & 58/59 shock numbers are the same as mine. This Rubi had sky touch roof. This shocks matched mine.

Maybe there's some difference in the 2021 spring mounts that would use a slightly shorter spring perhaps?? Mine are 90/91 & 59/61 from a 2018 JLUR w/ hardtop, tow & steel bumpers, and there's sets that are a number or two higher than mine. Interesting to find out what's truly going on here.

I have little doubt the shocks have changed, but maybe something going on there too :angry:
