Rubi wheels and tires on a non rubi.
Hello all, just singed up to the forum and loving every minute of it You guys helped me out a ton back when I had my YJ. I was a lurker back then lol. But I've since parted ways with my square headlights and I've started over with a new JK. I have just a few questions right now, but I'm sure as time goes on you'll get sick of hearing from me. My question is this: I'm looking at buying a set of rubi takeoffs from a guy on cl. I have a 2010 sport model with an automatic (yeah yeah). I'm wondering if there will be any noticeable power loss? In other words, can the 3.73 handle it? Looking forward to hearing from you guys!

You will have a slightly rougher ride as you are going to a MT from an AT tire.
It's a nice little bump especially if you pick up the Rubi take-offs for a good price. The Sport will be okay with the 3.73 gearing. If you're upgrading from the 16 inch wheels with 29 inch ST tires, you'll need to look into correcting the speedo. You can either go to the dealership to have hem flash it, which can cost anywhere between FREE and $75, or you can pick up a ProCal for $150 new, $100 used. If you have a little more to spend, there's the Flashpaq which will correct the speedo and tighten up the automatic tranny a litte. They're ~$330 new and can be found for cheaper used, but make sure it is unlocked if you buy it used otherwise it will cost you $100 from Superchips to unlock it. Happy wheeling.
