Rough Country really IS rough!

Had my TJ a couple weeks now, and man the Rough Country 4" springs are earning their name! I don't know what brand shocks are on it, but is there a shock that'll tame the bucking see saw? Are OMEs a good shock to use with Rough Country? Thanks for any input.

Yes the OME's will help it.

Just getting to work is an adventure.

x2. Make sure you get the OME LT (long travel) shocks. That's what I did when I had that lift and it helped a lot.

I have this same lift. It is rough... I was htinking of getting the OME shocks also. A mechanic said it will cost a lot to change out rear shocks because of all the rust... not good.

2 bolts upper and one bolt lower. If the bolts up top break. Hit them with a air chisel. Break the tac weld on them. Then just put in 5/16ths by 1 1/4 long bolts with washers and nuts. Simple.

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

After he got done checkin everything out he kept commenting on how i didnt get control arms yet and he had them and only spent 600$ on his lift total. And i spent 1400$ and still have to buy the c/a's.... i told him that i bet my kidney's are alot happier then
