Monroe - Monroe Reflex

The Monroe Reflex® truck shock absorber with the patented Impact Sensor™ Technology combines specially tuned valving with a Fluon banded piston.

The Impact Sensor™ valve has the ability to sense acceleration to improve the handling, safety, and overall ride characteristics of sport-utility vehicles, mini-vans and light trucks. The Impact Sensor™ base valve will sense a bump in the road and automatically adjust the shock to absorb the impact, leaving the shock with greater control when it is needed.

This is apparently the same as the Rancho RSX shock, but with a lower price. The Rancho brand is over used and over priced IMHO; I just didn't want to be yet another Rancho shock consumer. Woo-hoo, I'm a Rancho shock owner. Besides, I like the looks of these with my black TJ better than a white shock with bright red boot.

So far, they handle far better than the OEMs, but anything would be better than them after 80K miles. PO hadn't replaced when I bought and it was about the 1st thing to be replaced.

Ride is comfortable but stable. Handles dirt roads and light duty off-road just fine. If you are a DD and do some light off-roading then these are for you.

Bought my Jeep with 87k miles, had the shocks changed out at 137k (the Jeep seemed to have some kind of sag and had a terrible ride over bumps.. i thought this is how Jeeps were meant to be).. but oh man, these shocks blew me away. Fell in love with my ZJ all over again.. I'm sure when I get better tires the ride will be even more comfortable.. Great Buy, if you're thinking about these shocks, go for them.

I got a discount on these shocks at a local store so they cam out to less than $100 after rebates so it was a pretty good deal for decent shocks that i dont do much off roading with.

They are great when you first get them but seem to get stiff off road very quickly, if using as a daily driver they work excellent though

Really easy to fit . Before you remove them go to your local hardware store and buy new nuts and bolts.saves a whole lot of trouble, we are talking small money, not stealership prices.
Best tip: buy a cordless impact wrench,,,, brilliant.

Nice beefy units. Helped dampen a lot of body movement (though the old ones had 150k miles on them so comparrison may be skewed) If you're not lifting your WJ and want a heavier duty piece than stock, I'm very pleased with these.
