Price: $449.00
Pros: Easy kit to install and runs nice. Get the new bolt kit, you will thank yourself in the end.
Cons: Nothing on the kit, just rusted parts on the jeep took a bit to remove the old stuff.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Great kit...easy to install and really improved the look of the jeep. I highly recommend a lift and new tires. Just make sure you take the time to WD40 the bolts as they have been on the jeep for a few years in all types of weather and area a pain to get off :-)

Pros: Looks great easy install and bumps aren't as noticeable.
Cons: None
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I've only had them on a week but so far so good! The ones I replaces were in pretty bad shape but the RC9000 shocks really made a dramatic difference in ride quality. They were super easy to install and look pretty darn good IMO. If you'r looking to upgrade your shocks for an affordable price, I recommend RC9000.

Pros: New
Cons: Rough country
Recommended? No

Comments: Like I said with the RC Springs, it's very bouncy, even after I adjusted the torque on the springs and the shackles. It's better than it was but just barely.

Price: $30.00
Pros: Shocks are good.
Cons: The bushings are the worst. I complained and they sent me new ones, but I ended up fabricating my own.
Recommended? No

Comments: Until they improved the bushings, don't buy these. The shocks slide off the bushings on the lower end and then get destroyed on the mounts. Then theres the terrible rattling. I made a fatter bushing and wider... forced the bog bone into it and mounted it... now more problems.

Price: $140.00
Pros: Nice lift, better clearance and appearance
Cons: none yet
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Inexpensive and actually improves handling over the stock shocks, on and off road. They look good too. A couple bucks more and you can go up to the pro 2.2's, these are white and red - and look good, I only use them on the highway, beach, and some minor nasty dirt roads.
