svtkev Probably why they aren't called smooth country at least they are being honest in the name

Jerry Bransford RC's shocks are the primary reason for Rough Country's reputation for a rough/stiff ride. I'd go with something else. For the same/near price, Skyjacker Hydros ride very well, maybe a bit too soft for some though. Stay away from ProComp ES-3000, ES-9000, Rancho R5000 too as they all have just as stiff of a ride as RC's shocks, even their later "improved" 2.2 shocks do.

If you can afford them, OME Nitrocharger (which I am running) and Rancho R9000x shocks are superb.

village idiot My opinion is same as post #5. OME nitrocharger work great for me, although I don't have much experience with other brands. I can't imagine anything performing better than OME.

jgorm I had the RC 2.2s and they suck bad. I picked up a set of 4 JK rubicon shocks for $65 shipped. They fit with minor mods and ride really nice.

Wrangler06 i have the RC 2.2 and like um..its not completely smooth but as stated above its not a caddy, 2.5 inch lift with rc 2.2 shocks and mud tires and it rides just about like stock..little rough at about 65-70mph but its a jeep lol

eugenesonrisa Whatever you do... Don't get procomp. I have the same size lift. They're so hard it might as well be a hard tail motorcycle.

They are well worth the extra coin. Especially with the lifetime warranty. I got my Rancho 9000s for around $62 a shock shipped.
there is nothing to disagree about. my shocks are worn out and need replaced. also we have two different lifts (coils)

Jma20a i went with OME nitrocharger shocks and they ride great, worth every penny.

dmiller369 so the 2.2 sucks
the 9000 are nitrogen charged.

anyone have input on the 8000's?
05-05-2011 03:12 PM
mavrick300 I have rc 2.2 shocks and they suck they have a horrible ride quality after about 5 months they were horrible
05-05-2011 03:08 PM
Ibuildembig RCs are fine as long as you DO NOT buy the nitrogen charged ones. Ive run them for years without issues.

I have 5 sets on different rigs and for the money you cant beat um ....but Im not looking for a ride of a cadillac, if you want that....sell your jeep and buy one lol

New shocks??? Rough country????

I bought my jeep last year and it was lifted. I took pic. and posted them when i first got my jeep and was told i have a teraflex lift.(2"-3")

It rides like crap and i figure all jeeps do but i think i need new shocks.

I off road about 4 times a month the rest of the time its my daily driver.
