For you Rubicon owners, other than the 31 inch tires on 16 inch rims, what modification did Jeep do to give it higher ground clearence?

Someone at Central 4X4 told me they use 2 inch coil spring spacers. I thought some of you Rubi owners could answer this one.
Thanks.

The springs have a slightly taller ride height. Other than that, there's nothing special about the Rubicon's height. No spacers. No lift. Nada. Nothing.

I own a Rubi, and erhirner is correct, there not much different from the other models, just a slight difference in coil force. Any other stock Model can handle the 31's as long as offset rims properly and additional washers behind the steering stops if needed.

If your looking for lift, dont buy anyones removed Rubicon suspension. Alot of these are on ebay. There isnt enough of a diffrence to offset the pita of the swap.

If your think of a slight boost, go for a BL or some lift coils and shocks.

Cool
