Dude, wake up! It's a sign from God! He wants you to have coil-overs on your Jeep.

No. They have enough travel. I pulled the one rear out and the rubber gasket is all torn apart. No idea how that happened. Both rears are shot, fronts are still good. Im just gonna order 2 for now.

buy some other shocks. i´ve heard many times of damaged skyjackers after only a few months. they only cost 1/3 or 1/4 than high quality shocks. don´t think that they live as long as OMEs or bilsteins.
