WTB Shocks - TJ 4" lift

I'm looking to pick up a set of decent shocks for my TJ. I have a 4" lift and factory shock mounts. Ideally a set of 5100's or rs9000xl's would be great, but I'm not too picky. If anyone has outboarded theirs or replaced them to accommodate other lifts, etc. I'd be a buyer.

I thought I'd check before dropping the funds on new ones

I have a pair of 5100's that came off of the back of mine that I only ran for one year, they still look new. I only took them off because I out boarded my shocks and went longer. I was going to sell them for $75 for the pair.

Last year I replaced the shocks on my TJ, I went with Fox. Kinda pricey but WELL worth the $$. I was going to go with the 5100's

Since we are on the subject, I might be interested in some 4"--4-1-2" springs. Would trade for 5.5"

I just got some 4.5" BDS springs (rear only), shipped for ~ $115. I have a vendor friend in Iowa with whom I worked, and he got me free shipping. I'm very happy with the springs.
