Where'd you buy your shocks

I bought them at a Local Offroad shop using my previous employers account.
SeriousOffroad sells them for the same price I paid for mine

Impossible. 5100's sell for 78.00-100 per shock. Pretty much everywhere because Bilstein has a set minimum price on them. I've worked in the Automotive/Offroad Industry for 10 years up until January

Hmm, maybe try this one - http://zoneoffroad.com/prod-display?ca=1&ma=6&mo=62 . The other ones worked on my end, if this one doesn't either just hop on ZoneOffroad.com, click on the drop down menu titled "Suspension Lifts" and go to the XJ section.

I'm heading out to the Lima Ohio Jamboree tonight, if you have any questions in the meantime just let me know.

Anyone who's local or feels like a weekend road trip definitely head out, we'll have a full booth setup with our MJ and Chevy HD and there will be plenty of action going on

hey man .. just have to call it like it is .. the 3" for 510 with shocks would be sweet if you had LCA ...

but with now LCA, its still hard to beat the RE lift for 580 shipped. I have that lift now and its pretty beefy for the money to be honest, and it h as held up well.

Now fair enough .. that 4.5 with leaf pack looks nice but you really get 4.5 from the RE lift. Although I have heard RE has had some bad customer service and I hate that .. so ...

Really .. for example.. I would use monster line over any other bedliner, just because its pretty good and that guy is awesome on here .. he really is. ... even though other bed-liners may be a bit better.

RE is hard to beat there. rear brake line, LCAs, and sway bar links. granted zone does include shocks which needs to be changed when lifting. so I can see where a novice lifter would go for the zone cause you only have to change leafs, coils and shocks which is very straight forward.

I would say zone would be more a noob mall crawler lift with some off road capabilities and RE would be more an off roader with experience lift. just my opinion
