I love my rough country lift and I have always heard good things about their shocks.

you can do a lot better. also, you'll need to remove the 2" spacer lift to install a spring lift.

Couple of bucks more go for OME's. You'll never be sorry.

It wasn't because i don't have a hard top or a spare tire/tire carrier so i just put some 1" body lift spacers in the front and now it sits level.

The shocks that come with both of those kits are notorious for being too stiff riding. I'd defintely avoid the ES-3000 shocks that comes with the ProComp and the RC 2.2 shocks that comes with the Rough Country. Skyjacker's Hydro shocks are about the same cost and for an entry-level shock ride well.

Better shocks include Old Man Emu Nitrochargers, Rancho RS-9000xl, and the Bilstein 5100 (the special model 5100 specially valved for the Wrangler).

The very first lift I installed on my TJ was ProComp's 2" with the ES-3000 shocks and 6 months later, threw the ES-3000 shocks in the trash rather than sell them to anyone.

you could get the procomp with the MX-6 shocks or you can look into BDS. BDS has a special right now for 10% off and they have a good reputation for quality and ride from what I have seen on the boards.
I am on the fence right now deciding between the BDS 2" with Fox shocks or the Procomp 2" with MX-6 shocks.

I have Procomp shocks on mine (came with the Jeep) and I can't wait until I get the extra money to get a good set of shocks. I've honestly driven smoother riding tractors.

X2 on OME. Bit more expensive but you get what you pay for. OME will outlast both of those, ride better, and outperform on the trails.
