I don't have a jeep yet, I am trying to decide between a X and a rubi, I have never really 4X4'd before so I wanna get the right truck for some light off roading, I don't wanna get the rubi and find out after a month of having it that the X would have been more then enough jeep for me.

the X is more than capable for the kind of offroading your doing. it all depends on the setup and what you plan on doing. i have an X and ive been able to do all the stuff ive wanted to do as far as offroading. i even had an easier time on things that people with rubies were struggling with. basically what it boils down to is you can have the best rig out there but if you cant wheel it then it does you know good. offroading is one of those things that the drivers skill goes a very long way. but i will tell you this if two drivers had the same skills and one was driving the X and the other a rubie the rubie is better hands down. the ruby has a stronger front axle, lockers, electric swaybar disco's and better tires. the choice is yours but if you dont plan to change much but want to have a capable rig then i would buy the ruby if you can afford it. i have plans to build my X so the extra money wasnt worth it for me. good luck and let us know what you do.

yea stay away from those kind of dealerships. 2K is outrageous. The one by me said your better off doing it yourself. A lot cheaper. The only difference between lifts as said before is the disconnects up front on the rubi don't get changed(if you get a lift with the new sway bar links)


I went with the BDS 3" with the quick disco's and love it(great warranty). It's a little softer of a ride than stock not bad until I trailer something. I like the stiffer ride for that.

It was $750 I put it on myself in about 12 hours and a 12 pack.
285/70/17's on 17x8 4.5 backspace.
