New Shocks, New Jeep!

I installed brand new shocks on my YJ yesterday. Wow, what a difference!!

Before, it felt like i had steel rods for shocks, every bump, every tar line on the road, felt like i was dropping off a curb, just bouncing on my 6 ply Toyo MT's. It sucked.

Went and got a set of KYB Excel G's, and it's like driving a new car! I wanted to cry going over those same bumps on the way home. LOL.

Just wanted to share, anyone who has a rough riding jeep, and i mean rough, not just a bounce or a rattle, should consider some new shocks. (:

Similar experience in my Jeep going from generic white body shocks to Bilstein 5100's.
