I've read bad things about those rancho adjustables with them breaking and stuff like that.
Here is a link with some real good deals on lifts with shocks

I know the Ranchos are a bit pricey, but 4 for the price of 3 makes them pretty reasonable at about 50 bucks a pop....and that's for adjustable.
Can't imagine the ride on the softest setting would be that harsh would it?

I'm running 32x11.50 MT's with a 2" spacer lift and a 1" body lift.
When I was looking for shocks, friends told me to stay away from the Ranchos because they were stiff/harsh. I was going to get DT's but the shop I was going to buy from stopped selling them because they were having too many warranty issues.
I ended up getting Skyjacker Nitros for about $30 each. They have held up well for almost 2 years. Can't beat them for the price, IMO.

|DocG2828||I may have decided on a cheap puck kit with Rancho adjustables. Lots of places have them buy 3 get 1 free.....so for 270 I can get 4 adjustable Rancho's. Then one day buy the in-cab controls since I do a variety of types of driving.|

|ChilliRed||Just want to give a 2x on the OME shocks. You still feel everything, jus less... much better than the superlifts that i replaced|

Maybe I'll look into getting a cheap spacer set and then some nicer shocks....in the Mustang world, bilsteins were the way to go....sounds like they're pretty nice on Jeeps too. Guess I'll have to go back to doing some more research.

|Mike001||I got a buddy with cheap shocks and it rides rougher than a wagon. It sucks bad spend a little extra mone for a good set you won't regret it. Mine is softer than stock with the shocks I have. And the handling is great. Besides less stuff will rattle loose with a good shock. I have launched my Jeep about 7 feet off the ground and I didn't hardly feel the landing at all.|

You keep telling yourself that now good shocks are worth the money now but if you want to rattle your F***ing teeth out go ahead.

I'm planning on running 32x11.5's on a 2" lift. I'm sure I'll upgrade to a bigger/better lift later....but it'll be years down the road so I don't think I'm really wasting the money now.
I've heard lots of good things about OME, but I'm not really wanting to spend the money on that right now. I'm thinking maybe 50 bucks a shock if I don't buy a kit. I don't mind a rough ride and I'm not exactly jumping this thing. If I wanted to float on a cloud, I'd have bought an old mans car. If I hit a pot hole and my fillings don't rattle, then its not a Jeep!

|Mike001||I love it its great handles nice and its almost as smooth as my wife 06 WK. The only thing I'm not like is my CV driveshaft keeps breaking and I can't figure out why neither can anyone else. I would suggest if you can getting an adjustable rear track bar as well cause the rear relocation bracket didn't quite locate the axle right its off to the passenger side about an inch. Offroad its great, the flex is crazy. And its easy to install the directions where good.|

|Mike001||I have 33's on my TJ with a RE 4.5 in and when I disconnect the sway bars my tires rub ever so slightly at full stuff|

what size tires do you plan on using with a 2" lift? i'm kinda in the same situation. debating on going with either 32's or 33's.
i hear that the OME shocks are as good as they get.

|Mike001||I don't know but pucks are pucks You can get two inch pucks from Rusty's for $100 last time I checked. Then add a nice set of shocks. I would check Discount Tire for a tire and wheel deal cause you might be able to get a good deal there to. I would do a lot fo research and chenckin other web sites before you make a final decision I did that instead of rushing it and got a sweet deal. You otta check 4x4groupbuy.com|

Rubicon Express Lifts
I've been looking at piecing together a package at 4wd.com. I've been leaning towards the Skyjacker 2" lift with the spacers and shocks, but 4wd.com doesn't carry the package, only the spacer lift package w/out shocks.
They have a Rubicon Express 2" lift with shocks and spacers. Anyone know anything about this lift? Is it any good?
Or would I be better off getting the spacer lift and buying the shocks separately?
Anyone ever do the packages at 4wd.com? Seems like a pretty good deal and easy enough if they mount/balance all wheels and tires.....would make a DIY install pretty easy with the only thing needed being an alignment.
