Recommend 2" bb.

Looking to grab a 2" bb and shocks to go with it, anyone have any favorites?

Im guessing all spacers are about the same, but what shocks would you suggest? Keeping the shocks around $50-60ea ($200-$250 for the set)

Yes, I plan to play offroad with it, if it was going to be a mall crawler id just grab the spacers and call it good.

Email Kolak, He will hook you u up. What I used and most people will recommend for a 2in bb is bilstein shocks. They ride really nice, but if your shocks have about 160,000 miles on them like mine did then anything will ride better

They have about 190 on them, its time to replace them.

Not all BB's are the same. Some use poly spacers. These can get compressed over time. Mine are solid and work great. And yes, Blistein shocks are the way to go. Though It's been 2 years with my stock shocks without a problem.

I had to look it up again. But the ones I have are made from a material called Delrin.

Kolak can get you a good price on the rubi xpress kit. Decent shocks. Unlike nitros which are universal the rubicon express shocks are gassed specifically for the zj. Think I paid 220 shipped.

Sent from my iPhone using JeepForum so it probably looks goofy.

I have a nice 2" BB kit that's a true 2". Many of the kits are actually 1.75".

And of course I have shocks available as well.

Send me a PM and we'll chat.

A friend of mine and I were talking about this today. He asked me why my zj sits taller than his. When I installed the bb he bought I measured the pucks and they were only 1.75in. Not to mention I have the UC package also. still kinda lame to pay for something thinking its one thing and get something else.
So message Kolak for the best prices around and a true 2in bb if you haven't yet

Delrin is some tough stuff for certain applications. Several years ago, I was given a box of 144 Delrin .55 mm guitar picks by a luthier ( custom guitar maker) who made and customized several guitars for the Eagles. I fell in love with them back then and now, they are pretty much the standard in guitar picks. It's hard to tear them up, although they DO wear...they just dont break.
