Dusty Rhodes Front position if you only can afford two. The fronts do all the work with the weight transfer.

Scrap the idea of looking for takeoffs , I didn't notice you were already lifted.

Wattapunk Didn't realize you already have a 3.5" lift. I thought from your post you are at stock height but saving $$ for a lift. So you want to go higher than 3.5"? DEfinitely need to research to find shocks of the right length that's right for your current lift.

metal41mulisha Ive never had pro comp shocks but I do have a 4 inch coil lift and I'm telling you that the skyjacker hydros are very still just save up and get good ones I've had mine for about 2 months and already looking at fox shox if that tells you anything

It's less headaches and cheaper in the long run.
I know it won't be really nice, but I have my 3.5" lift right now, and I have the pro comp ES3000 shocks that are very stiff in my opinion. I was just thinking that if they are only $35 each, might as well do it! Any idea on how much a difference there will be from pro comp shocks to the skyjacker hydros?

Brad48178 Go to skyjacker.com go to the scratched and dented section I got 4 hydros for 116.00 shipped. They have minor cosmetic flaws other than that they work perfectly.

Txcoog Put Rancho 5000's on mine and really like them. Like riding on a cloud and offroad performance has been great. Most of all, MADE IN THE USA.

shockey67 I replaced my ProComps with Skyjacker Hydrostatic and it as been the best of many upgrades that I have done. Got mine from Quadratec plus there was a $35 rebate that I just received today. I love the ride. I have a 2007 unlimited x with tock shocks and my 97 sport with the hydros rides much smoother. I would recommend that u change all 4. If not, do the front first. Good luck

I only really have money right now for 2 new shocks.
Is it better to get 2 for the rear or 2 for the front?
Im leaning towards Skyjacker Hydro right now.
Im not putting money into real nice shocks because I know I will be getting a slightly higher lift within a year or so.
I go offroading 1-2 times per month, everything else is my daily driver.

Thanks for your time
I have ES3000s on mine and I love them.
Skyjacker sucks!

jeepwayoflife Hmmm alright... Anyone else have opinions regarding running different shocks front and rear?
05-29-2012 12:44 PM
somis There's Bundle deals online. Quadratec or Morris 4x4 can't remember. But if you buy it in one shot its cheaper. Don't waste your money if your getting a lift soon anyways. Be smart.

Rayko I'm far from an expert but I wouldn't mix 2 diff shock settings. 2 real stiff and 2 softer doesn't sound like a good idea.

Rolf Get a set of JKU Sahara shocks. I got my front set for free.

jeepwayoflife Im looking for a nice soft ride on road, but still decent offroad.
