budget boosts are all about the same. the only difference is shocks. i think the zone shocks might be slightly better than skyjacker. but more than likely it's 6 of one half a dozen of the other. get whichever one is cheapest shipped to your door.

oh and don't pay extra for the shock boots because all those things do is trap dirt and sand in them.

on second thought get the zone because the skyjacker one doesn't come with front bump stop extensions.

That's what I was thinking. I just wasn't sure how important front stops were and if the half inch difference in spaced size would make a difference?

eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices

I used this one because I decided Delrin would be better than poly. You'll still have to get bump stop extensions. They had a "kit" without transfer case drop, but I don't see it now.

Those procomp shocks are easily the shittiest shocks I have ever run on my jeep.

I ran a set on my CJ5 and they were fine. They're fine on the TJ too.
They're just twin tube hydraulic shocks, same as Skyjacker and Zone (whoever makes those).

Yep and there are far better riding shocks than those types available, like my Bilstien 5100's. The ones I had jarred your teeth on every bump.

I think all coil spacers are about the same ( I could be wrong) I got my 2" spacers off ebay for $49.95 shipped and I got some 2011 rubicon shocks for $35.00, the guy just wanted me to cover shipping and they look like new. This is what I'm going to run until I can afford an OME lift. I did some research and found a few guys running this set up and said it ran great.
