Question Thoughts on Skyjacker Nitro Shocks

I just bought the Teraflex 2.5" lift kit and paired it with Skyjacker Nitro 8000 shocks. I've found minimal reviews and feedback online about the shock (more than plenty praise about the lift kit). I was wondering if anyone on here has had experience with these shocks and possibly this lift/shock combo

I have a 2016 Rubicon Unlimited and this is my daily driver with the occasional offroading

Not many reviews as Skyjacker products aren't that popular in the Jeep world much less the JK world. They are basic twin tube white body shocks. They'll work and will ride ok, but don't expect a Cadillac. As for longevity, don't expect much there either.

I'm pretty sure I had the Hydro shocks, came with the 2.5" sport lift kit I bought.

They seemed to last about 1.5-2 years (~60k), and when I removed them a few weeks ago, the mounting forks nearly broke off (appeared to have rusted quite a bit). Also, the bushings metal tube was just a sheet of metal folded over, thus having a weak point for the bushing to begin getting crushed under heavy shock.

I liked them until I took them off. I was slightly frightened to see how much was nearly a disaster.
