Shocks

Greetings, I’m looking at replacing shocks on my 09 JK. I’d like to hear recommendations from the forum on products out there. I’ve youtube a few reviews but I value Forum Feedback.

How do you use your Jeep?
What's your budget?

What he said. Shocks can be had for as little as $250-$300 all the way up to several $1000's. Depends on your needs, budget, and lift if you have one.

I have a 2” lift and currently rolling on 37” tires. I do some off-roading but like to crawl when I get the chance. I drive mostly in the city but get out to the sticks about every weekend. It is not my daily driver. Budget has room. I’d like a good quality shock.

Based on that I'd suggest checking out the Falcon 3.3, I've run them the last couple of years and really like them. Also installed them on the wife's Jeep with 3" lift and 37s.

Lots of adjustment, great ride.

Yep. Falcon 3.1 or 3.3.

The remote (piggyback) reservoir will help dissipate the heat from the big tires.

I brought up a video in Falcon, they appear to be worth the money. Thanks for the tips.
