Between my last jeep and current jeep I've had 4 different types of shocks so far. Stock (ok), RC 2.2 (suck bad), skyjacker hydros (suck), and JK rubicon monotubes (ok). I have 2.5" springs (I think they are skyjacker from the PO) and a 1" BL. I'm doing the DIY fender lift to clear 35s at this lift height (actually it could clear 37s with the same clearance I have on my current 31s with no rubbing issues). I have ~ 1" bump stop extensions now and don't plan to extend them ever, but maybe remove them if possible. I'm open to all ideas including coil overs and even long arms with this low lift. I'll be going to 17" wheels to clear 13" brakes, and its a rubicon so I have the stock d44s. I want the jeep to be SUPER smooth on the road and mellow trails, even without airing down. I'll obviously air down of any moderate trails. I know cornering will suffer a bit and understand that you can't have great cornering and a super smooth ride. What should I do?
