Ok will do, and I love it the 3.6 is great and the transmission is so smooth, its more like driving a car and less like driving a boulder what a difference. I love having a 6th gear too

Hardtop 4 door rubicon springs, 12 inch travel shocks and 2.5 inch coil spacer up front to compensate for the winch and bumper.

I think the 4dr hardtop sport springs are the same as the 4dr hardtop rubi springs. Only difference is the shocks. If that's correct I have a set you can have.

To run the 37's all he had originally were the hartop 4dr rubi springs, 12.8" travel shocks and trimmed fenders. He later added the spacers because he try'd out Glens 40's. Not sure if he still has them in, they do help with ride quality as you have more up travel. The flex with the 12.8 shocks is shocking, you will need spring retainers but they are easy to fab up. For bump stops he found hockey pucks work great and are almost free. With this much flex he hasn't bothered to install a locker yet as the rig is damn impressive even with open/open. I will find a link to his build page for you.

Sounds good Tim, we should have some new stuff to play on by then. can't wait to hear about the hydro steer. RCV should be plenty strong...

Kenny, the 2.5 spacers were for the 40's, he used a 3/4 spacer to run 37's. Zack, you def can do this pretty simple. If you have the 3.21's the gearing will be off obviously but that can be addressed later.

Hey so I've been looking into it, and it seems that they make 22 different types of springs from 07-13!!!! And it seems like the rubi springs are hd and they give more lift

Ill check the numbers in them. From what I understand the different spring options depends in hardtop/softop, tow package ect... And rubi to sport doesn't matter. Ill get the numbers off them and you can go from there
