Skyjacker Softride with Bilstein shocks

I have a 2003 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon that I bought used. I want to put in about a 2 1/2" lift and talked a guy at 4 Wheel Parts Wholesaler. He recommends a Skyjacker Softride with Bilstein shocks. Does anyone have this setup and how do you like it?

Has anyone had 4 Wheel Parts Wholesaler do any installs? Do they do good work?

It'd be ok providing you got the special Bilstein 5100 shocks that are especially valved for the Wrangler. If they didn't get you the right Bilsteins, it'd ride pretty stiffly. And personally, I would not trust the counter guy in a 4WP store to know about that particular shock, not many Bilstein dealers are aware of it or are willing to look for it. 4WP can (!) do good work but they tend to overcharge people, or charge as much as they can get. Their first quote is always issued at full list price with the hopes you'll just accept it as is but with persistance and walking towards the door like you're leaving will generally always result in a lower price.
Gone wheeling, back late sunday...
Remember that having a different opinion doesn't also require one to be a jerk when expressing it.

When you have a choice, buy American.
