To my understanding, there's only 3 end stops.

Seems that i'm taking the plunge, too. Ordered RAMPS 1.4 and other stuff for other printer that i'm printing (Dollo3d, http://3dprintboard.com/showthread.php?12856-Dollo-3D-Printable-3D-Printer). However, as Cube 2 can be a PITA to operate and quality is bit of a mix of good and bad, even with good slicers, i thought that why not install RAMPS to it and finish the Dollo print with it. So now i'll need to start figuring out Arduino etc., never had the pleasure of using it.

I'm thinking that i'll leave the original cables and connectors as they are, so i can return to Cube 2 mobo (if i ever want to, that is...). I'll make some additional cables that plug in to Cube cables and other ends got to RAMPS. I already have J-Head on my Cube 2 and using bowden extruder so the hw setup shouldn't be a problem. Actually, as i currently need 24V -> 12V conversion the get J-Head working safely, i can forget that bit of electronics.
