I am check in out the user manual for the LJ U6 and I was wondering if it is possible to have 2 serial ports active at the same time. I read that if you change the offset for the pins you can use different pins for RX and TX. However for the application that I am building having 2 Serial ports (TX1,RX1,TX2,RX2) would make my life much easier. Thanks in Advance.

You can run more than one serial bus with the U6. The UART on the U6 is full duplex, but only one TX/RX pair can be active at a time. So if you can guarantee that device A won't transmit while you are talking to device B and visa versa then you can run more than one serial bus without issue.
