Jeep Shocks

Hello everyone! I've been reading advice since I bought my Wrangler. I have a 2010 Jeep Wrangler JK. I've spent the last 2 hours reading the Cheap Mod posts lol. Got some sick ideas out there. I have some questions because I'm in the process of getting new shocks.

I currently have a 2.5in spacer lift kit on it, with 33" tires. Can you guys give me some ideas in some long lasting, good shocks.

Thanks

Since you seem to be in cheap mods:

Buy a set of Rubi take-offs and shock extensions. BOOM!

I agree Witt both ^ but there's a rebate ending June 30 on the Rancho shocks.
Rubicon shocks run $100 ish
Extensions $50-$100 depending on brand
Another $100 or so will get you a better shock. 9000 adjustable shocks are around $225 (after $100 mail in rebate)

Thanks, I'll look into it.

Lol, I'm not into cheap mods. Just trying to find some good shocks I don't need to change in 5,000 miles.

The FREE Rubi take-offs I tried were barely marginally acceptible as good as the OEM Sahara ones I thought were worn out.

Rancho 9000s adjustable will make you smile.

I got my Rubi take offs for $75 and they came with 18/60 springs as well.

Since I am not running enough lift to need extensions, it was excellent an value. I think that if I needed to buy the spacer kit at roughly $100 as well, I would have chose the Rancho 9000's, especially while the rebate is available.

Agreed!!! I actually did the 9000 in front and 5000 in rear based on what the Rancho Rep suggested. Love the ride! Search it on amazon by part number and I got mine for $80 a piece

And guys, for these shocks, I don't need any extension? Since I have a little 2.5in lift on it.
