Installed new Skyjacker Hydros.

I replaced my RE Shocks today with Skyjacker Hydro 7000 series. WOW what a huge improvement. I have the 4.5" RE Superflex lift and the ride was really stiff with the RE shocks, I felt every pot hole in the road really jarred my back the Skyjackers are much more driver friendly. Not sure how these will fare in the trails I will find out this weekend...

I'd be interested to learn how they perform on washboard roads. Thanks.

I sure hope they are that good. I have a set of Hydro's coming my way for mine. I think the ones on it now are stock, and junk. My TJ will be more of a road queen than trail.

I only drove for about 15 miles after the install and compareing them to my REs that came off I have a huge improvement. I will try out on some trails this weekend. Im sure there are much better shocks out there but for the money and my Rig seeing mostly street roads these are fine.

Can Anyone help me on how to install the new shocks or a write up on it? Never messed with them before but I'm getting either hydros or nitros soon. What's the difference? Thankyou
