Can someone point me to a thread that has a good comparison of shocks for a 2.5 inch lift? I used the search but couldn't find one thread with a comprehensive comparison. Namely I'm looking at:
1. Rancho XL90000 Adjustables (there may be a forum member on here that kinda likes these....I can't remember who that might be....)
2. Bilstein 5100's Some love them, some say they ride too stiff.
3. Fox 2.0 I haven't seen alot of feedback on these.
I've got a 2007 JKUR used as a DD but wheeled moderately hard on on weekends. Putting on one of the 2.5 RK lifts, probably just the Flex system to start. I was originally sold on the Rancho's but now after my engine debacle I'm looking to cut some expenses where possible.
Well, point in me in the direction of thread that addresses these shocks or throw out your experiences with them.

I think it all depends on how your rig is setup.
The bilstiens on my jeep did ride on the harsher side. I was only running TF springs and no other components.
I've driven in a friends jeep with a complete AEV lift and the ride was beautiful.
Spring rate/tires/etc so many things can affect ride.
The Ranchos really smoothed things out for me. There was a rebate at the time and I got them for a great price.
I do not know anything about FOX.
