bajonesy77 If you run cheap shocks make sure to use shock boots to protect the cheap chrome plating on the pistion rod, especially if you live where there is salt put on the roads or do lots of mudding.

indirocz28 I bought some 14" travel Rough Countries. Currently waiting until I have time to measure everything out to fab everything up. But the best way is to flex and measure with no shocks and make sure your bump stops are correct.

I was just reading an article on this earlier today on jeep forums I think.

Here is one of the links.
bumpstops, shock length, and tires size. help me iron out the fuzzy points.. -
I dug around for a while earlier and plan to go back and re read a few forums before I make final welds on brackets and hoops.

Norcal_Chris If you wsnt to spend less just get 14in travel pro comp es3000s. Work plenty good and cheap. Make the mounts were you need them and then run em.

I had tjem on my 6klb blazer and they worked fine. Only reason I have bilstiens on my jeep is they were given to me

bajonesy77 The body lift doesn't matter when considering shock size as the shocks are mounted to the frame and axle so shocks for a 4inch lift are what you should be looking for. If your going for max flex you will want to remove shocks and measure for up and down travel. With those heavy axles and large tires I would recommend a gas charged mono tube shock such as the bilstein 5100, rubicon monotubes or old man emu nitrochargers.
