I know this thread is going to get beat to death as asking the question about shocks is like asking which style of underwear you prefer. But, here it is: 2008 JK Sahara, stock, 0 inches of lift. Have a blown RR shock that is being replaced until I can figure out a good set of shocks to replace all 4 with. My rig is used 90% on highway for personal use and being towed behind a MH for outbound trips from camp. It will also be used for forest service roads in the fall for deer / elk hunts and general camp use. It will also se some duty in snow as I live in central Oregon. Part of me says to go with a stock shock, while at the same time, many reviews I have read suggest an upgrade. I don't need really high end shocks, but want something that will eat the rough roads / bumps and provide a comfortable (for a jeep) ride. I have read that Rancho and ProComps are basically the same shocks, just different colors. It also seems that the ProComp ES9000 is a better shock, for the JK than the ES3000's. Ranchos seem to say the RS5000 foes good, but I am led to believe that the Rancho 5000 and the ProComp 3000 are the same shock. Bilsteins get pretty good reviews too. Also, it seems that a shock with nitrogen gas is superior to non nitrogen shocks. Any thoughts or recommendations?
