Pro Comp shocks?

I didn't find any topics or reviews on the forum about pro comp shocks. I blew out the bushing on my rear shock, so now I have a justified reason to get new ones. Currently I have the RC 2.2 with a 2.5 inch lift with 31s. I do light to medium rock/dirt trails in the texas hillcountry, plus normal day to day driving.

4wheel parts has a deal right now, spend 500, get 300 off certain brands, pro comp is one of them. With this deal, I could pick up a new rear bumper from pro comp as well for practically free.

Anyone have opinions or experience with pro comp shocks. I am looking at the pro comp MX-6

i've never used procomp shocks, but everything i've read is pretty bad.

you most likely blew the rear shocks due to lack of bumpstop extension. when you get new shocks, address the bumpstop extensions or it will just happen again. I like Old Man Emu shocks myself. Bilstein is also good. pay attention to compressed length, since thats what determines the bumpstop extension requirements.

thanks. I did find some reviews on other sites, they didn't seem to have great reviews at all. I don't know much about shocks and my lift was done by the PO. Are the bumpstops installed on the coil springs or the shocks?

just trying to figure out if this is something I should try and do myself or take it somewhere that hopefully knows what they are doing.

Theres no problem with pro comp other than too stiff of valving for a TJ ( I have es3000). They ride very rough. The mx6 shocks however are adjustable and I hear are on par with rancho adjustable shocks. I wouldn't have a problem buying them, there is nothing wrong with the quality. Mine just wont die, the bushings are just now going out after 10 years which a good enough excuse for me to replace the whole shock.
