Shock Size?

I have read that RE lifts run about an inch higher than advertised. If I buy a different brand shock to go with it, which size shock do I need to buy to match? Advertised size or bigger?

What size lift? Stock shocks will work with up to a 2" lift.

2000 Sahara, 3.5" Rubicon Express Lift, 1" spring spacer & 1" Body Lift, 33" or 35" BFG Mud tires, Front & Rear ARB, Rancho 9000 shocks, UCF Ultra High Belly Up

If your looking at the RE 3.5 then I would go with shocks for a 4" lift.
