4 inch procomp lift Q`s
 
Its a 4 inch procomp lift and it has the procomp shocks... what would you guys recommend for new shocks ?? It is my dd. But still get her up in the mountains and covered in mud..

Get some bilsteins or fox or nitro shocks. Mine has just the pro comp shocks and it's hard as a rock but I kinda like it cause it handles very well on curvy mountain roads and stuff which I drive a lot

Thats how mine feels and those are what i was looking at. Now its come to what one to get or are they all about equal.(bilseins,fox,nitro)

I'm not quite sure on bilsteins and fox but I had nitros on my grand Cherokee and they were extremely soft. Made a really smooth ride but if I had a ton of stuff in my jeep that weighed it down it would bounce going around curves which was really scary but that's also cause it was a grand and not a wrangler. The rides are completely different. But I have heard nothing but good stuff about all the others as well so I don't think you can go wrong with any of them really.

I honestly don't know enough about them to tell you on that one.

Bilstein 5100
BDS 5500

The 5160 is remote res, which gives you more oil to dissipate heat. Therefore, if you drive fast on the trails, or hammer your shocks, they won't fade as fast. If you were to get them, I would have someone valve them for your Jeep so you get your money's worth. I don't think you'll find them of use for daily driving, however. Check out OME Nitros, Skyjacker M95, Rancho 9000xl, or the 5100s.

Thx for the info. Thats kinda how i saw it. 5100 look promising

I have the rancho 9000s and they are night and day better than the procomp shocks that were on my jeep when I bought it. Being adjustable gives you plenty of room to find your comfort zone on the road or trail.

My two TJs have had a lot of different brands & models of shocks and so far, my present Old Man Emu Nitrochargers are my favorites.

The only shocks I have driven with that were significantly better in all regards were the specially valved Fox shocks sold by Savvy Offroad.
