Need help choosing shocks
 
It's time for an upgrade from the teeth chattering pro comp es3000s :zap: i'm running now. What shock do you guys think will work well with a 4" lift? I drive quite a bit on the streets, but hit the trails every now and again. I was looking at Bilstein 5100s (I like the 5150s more, but they only go up to 3" of lift. Will these fit?) , Fox 2.0s, and Rancho rs9000xl. Any input would be appreciated.

im in the EXACT same situation. and considering all of thos shocks too. leaning toward foxs cause they are rebuildable.

i have a 5.5" lift and use rancho 9000s they work VERY WELL. My jeep is also my DD so good on-road ride is important, i adjust my shocks to 7 (firm) when i'm on pavement to give me a stiffer and less rocky ride. When i hit the trail i drop them down to 2 (soft) which gives you a smooth ride off-road. less expensive than fox shocks and are American made compared to bilstein.

very important. i have come to the conclusion that hopefully every upgrade, mod or replacement i do to the jeep has to be made in america. dont know i feel like i have to give something back other than...

No I get what you are saying.... Buy American, save the economy, blow up the Chinese....I get the sentiment.
