Jeep - Rookie Question

I am still relatively new to the Jeep cult and I am enjoying the heck out of it. I have a question that wil probably sound pretty dumb to a lot of you.

I bought a new 2015 JKU Rubicon in September. The only mods I have added is a 2" ProComp puck lift (which is probably really about 1.75") and JW Speaker headlights and fog lights. My question is, when I hit a decent size bump at 50-60 mph, should it feel and sound like I just ran into a bridge? Is it just the stiffness of the suspension?

With the 2" puck lift and oem shocks, you basically took away that 2" of absorption the shocks had to lessen the blow of hitting a bump.

Which shocks would you recommend to get a little better ride?

I didn't install the spacers, I had it done through my Jeep dealer. I talked to my local Jeep shop and I'm getting some Bilstein 5100s installed next week. That should fix me up.

take a look at your tire pressure. Makes a big difference. Most Jeeps come off the lot overinflated. I've seen some with over 42 psi and when brought down to 35 makes a world of difference.
