stock Rubicon suspension on a stock Unlimited?
Let me ask this. One buddy has a 05 Rubicon and just installed a RE 3.5" lift on it so he has all his coils, shocks and tires laying around. My other buddy has an 04 Unlimited and is going to buy the stock 31" MTR's from the Rubicon to install on his Unlimited. Is there any benifit to installing the stock Rubicon shocks and coils on the Unlimited. Will this lift his Unlimited any? He was going to get the 2" REBB but if he can use the Rubicon components at least they won't be lying around. Also he is buying new 16x8 wheels for the MTR's so what is the best back spacing to go with? Thanks
I wouldn't waste my time installing a stock Rubicon suspension, there's no real advantage over what is on a stock TJ other than possibly stiffer nitrogen-charged shocks (some TJs have those anyway) and springs that have a slightly higher spring rate. For backspacing, 5" to 5.5" is ideal for 31x10.50 tires while 3.75" would make them stick out beyond the flares so something between those dimensions would be fine.
When you have a choice, buy American made.
