Some kid in Houston was selling these.. I had work in Houston today so I came up and grabbed them.. 1500 miles on the set.
All in all about $3000 worth of parts for $450.. Couldn't pass that up. Going to try and put the shocks on my Rubi.. Any reason I shouldn't?

Only thing I can think of is potentially payload/towing might be off, but otherwise looks like an awesome upgrade

Is that the wih Hydro front bump stops also, looks like one on the side, The Mojave has different shock brackets but that is probably just a beefed up mount, and shocks are probably the same, if you aren't running a winch or heavy bumper on front putting on the front springs and bump stops might be cool, and a inch of lift. you did get a great deal, no matter what. I love the ride on my Mojave......Jack

No bump stops unfortunately.. I plan on using the shocks on all four corners and using the front springs cause I do have a winch.. But keeping the rear springs for payload and towing.. Not sure how well it will work but I guess we'll see..
The mounts are different so I will have to get spacers to use the smaller bolts and hope there aren't any interference issues.. I searched and have yet to find anyone that has done the shock swap on a Rubi.. If you know anyone maybe I can get some tips from them.. Thanks
