All depends on what the end goal is and how you plan to get there. Rubicon is worth it for the parts it includes... if you plan on 37ís and will wheel it on more than dirt roads.

If the plan is to use it for daily driver and some leaf looker trails... Rubicon isnít needed.

If the plan is to put tons and 40ís thereís no need to buy Rubicon just to take the axles out from underneath it.

The hard part is knowing for sure how youíll eventually use it and the timeline ($$$).

Iíd say that Rubi makes sense in almost every case for someone that has plans to wheel it ó and that doesnít have immediate plans to go 40ís.

I thought Dana 44 were in all the ones I mentioned? I knew 2 dr had different from just the Rubicon. My x had 35. So the jk model axles all suck for medium trails? I had to put in HP in front and Dana 44 axle in my old 2005 Jeep x.

Not sure what the new JL's are doing but, only the Rubicon gets the D44 in the front. Everything else comes with the old D30.

I like what Jared stated, it all depends on your future plans.

Dana 30 is fine for 35" tires. The JKs have beefier axles than the older model jeeps

Rubi gets the front 44 and the better transfer case.
