If I take a Sport S and add the LED lights, Rubicon suspension, Rubicon steel front and rear bumpers and the hood do I have a Rubicon? If I take a Rubicon and replace the suspension, wheels, tires, hood, put on a big stinger is it still a Rubicon? Is it possible to make a Rubicon a Sahara if I change enough crap? Move a Sport S upstream into a Sahara or Rubicon?

Or is it just a bunch of letters on a title somewhere?

Just curious

Basically you don’t get built in lockers, Dana 4:10 rears and electronic sway bar disconnect if you don’t buy a Rubicon. . Is that important to you? Would probably never get people here to agree on that.

oooh - electronic sway bar disconnect. That would be nice - no crawling under the JL.

People are spending $500 + For on-board air compressors. I guess anything goes

Yesterday I picked up Rubicon Steel Front and Rear bumpers with LED and tow hitch for $600 off a JL with 500 miles - feel like I won the lottery

Holy cow, you sure did. I paid a lot more just for the front.

Beyond the obvious superficial items; gearing, different t-case, axles(wide), lockers, sway-bar disconnect

Don’t forget Fancy stitching, red tow hooks and a pretty red dash ;)
Mine Rubicon doesn’t have a red dash or fancy stitching. I have the tan leather interior. Lol

It's just a package of component that make a trim level, but don't forget the VIN! The 7th digit of the VIN will indicate the trim level... So changing parts to match with make it look and/perform like the other, but cannot be mistaken for.

:jk:
A = 2-door Sport
B = 2-door ??
C = 2-door Rubicon
D = 4-door Sport
E = 4-door Sahara
F = 4-door Rubicon

My Punk'n Rubi didn't come with the red dash, certain colors don't. I'm not sure why they went that way. They put red accents on the "RUBICON", red tow hooks front & rear, and red accent badges that look really good with the orange, not sure why they didn't put it on the dash too. But the gray dash looks classy... not sure I want to spend $ to find out if I like the red dash better or not.
