Rubicon express monotube shocks review

Sadly I cheaped out with my lift and bought the twin tube shocks and they ride absolutely terrible, I have a very light load since I'm not modded. How many of you are running the monotubes with a light load and how do they feel?

your not the first to complain about their twin tubes. lol.
the bilstein 5100 rebranded/"tuned" RE monotubes are the way to go.

I have them and love them. a good bit stiffer than stock, especially with light load, but very controllable ride, I like it a lot, but I have steel bumpers and winch and 35" tire on the carrier
