I have .. I have never seen their preformance in person though .. but I think the next shocks I'm going to get are going to be coils .. like the blastic fab or something like that. When I get a cage in I can put some shock hoops on it

That sounds like a plan! How many miles does your Xj have?

My buds cherokee has the 3" series 2 kit from RoughCountry with full leaf packs, if I had a cherokee I'd use it. Me and him installed it in my driveway with ease about a year ago and it works great and haven't had any issues. Rides better than it did stock imo.

Trimmed on 30" falkens.







Same lift with 1.5" coil spacer front and MJ shackles in the rear and 32" tires

The top two are 3"

The bottom two he added spacers on top of the coils, so it's the same springs, arms, shocks but spacers on top. so it's sitting at 4.5"

I'll see if I can find some more of him on 3"

I love them they are the only shock I will run this is the 3rd Jeep I've Run 5100's on. A few of my buddy's bought them also cause they made my jeep ride really good. And you can't beat the lifetime warranty and they will revalve them for you if you want. Not to mention they are specifically valved for each application.

So you'd buy them over basically any shock?

Well any shock in the same pricerange, If I was spending 200+ per shock I'd look at Fox also , If I was looking at coilovers I'd go King
