|blackforestgreen||most are also happy with the "red" rubicon shocks.|

|xirtic||The Skyjacker M95's are a similar price to the Teraflex shocks, and the Rancho 7000 units. The build quality is not "cheap" like their nitro/hydro units. They may prove to be a "moderate" price-point that offers the DD crowd a nice on-road experience...that can also preform well for the off-road trail runs.|

|SilverSport||Cheap and good don't necessarily go together. LOL|
|05-01-2013 07:48 PM|
|Wrangler010||I think I'm liking the m95 shocks.....reviews seem pretty good, and they're a little more reasonably priced......|
|05-01-2013 06:05 PM|
|xirtic||I actually broke from the norm...and went with the Skyjacker M95 Monotubes...I had read that they were more compliant on-road than the Bilsteins so I took the chance on them. They really are smooth. The road manners are very nice.|

I just put on my 2" sport lift with 4 Rancho 9000's. Night and day difference. I barely feel the washboard roads anymore. Not much dive in the front when braking and the overall handling improved noticeably.

|ohioviper||+1 for the Rancho 9000s . Love the ability to change the settings for offroad and back for highway.They work great with the TF 2.5" spring lift.Got mine off Amazon with free shipping $275 after rebate.|

|baytownbert||I also have the Teraflex 2.5" lift with shock extensions. If I order the Rancho 9000's, is there a specific spec to accomdate this lift, or will any 9000 work?|

I like these.
Just have to save up for a year or two.

|rics1997||I went with Fox Racing 2.0 and they are great shocks for the trail but are pretty stiff for the road. Feels more like truck shocks.|

|traitor08||I went with fox racing.|

|gr8fulKID||When I do my shock upgrade, I think im going with old man emu nitros|

Let me say this. I have had several lifted vehicles in the past, like most here have, but my last build was amazing. I had a 2011 F250 6.7 and bought a Carli suspension with the King Racing 2.5's. The King Shocks on 1 4.5' lift made my truck ride like nothing I have ever been in before. They were not cheap, but they were AMAZING.
I traveled on the highway a lot with Nitto Trail Grappler 35" and loved it. No matter the condition, my rig rode like a Cadillac. The only reason I sold it was because I had all types of sensor issues and a turbo that went out at 23K miles. I decided to get back in a Jeep and love it. Again, I know King's are pricey, but it's because they truly are built for your vehicle. I am sure some Jeep owners on here have them and can vouch the same.
If I build up this 13 Rubi Unlimited (daughter will be driving soon so I may give it to her), it will be with King Shocks. My .02

|Farnham21||The teraflex shocks aren't that bad from what I've heard and I believe they are around $250 for all 4 so a good price. Think I'm gonna go that route just so I can be a teraflex fanboy|

I just installed Bilstein 5100's ! what a great improvement from stock shocks..
|04-29-2013 07:35 PM|
|SilverSport||2 popular choices are the Bilstein 5100s and the Rancho 9000s.|
