Price: $0.01
Pros: Look cool
Cons: Don't work
Recommended? No

Comments: They came on my WJ when I bought it. Lift has less then 1000 miles on it and my Jeep floats like a freakin' crab boat on the Bering Sea. I can only assume it is because of the shocks. The lift kit is the Rough Country 4" lift. I am looking for new shocks as I type this.

Pros: Good customer service.
Cons: stiff as stiff can get, they leak.
Recommended? No

Comments: I got these stocks with the 2.5" lift. there is a very noticeable difference when you go from stock to these shocks. its absolutely horrible. their is no dampening being done and to top it off they started leaking after about 6 months.i contacted rough country and they sent me out a new set but i never put them on. I could compare the ride to that of driving a fork lift on a dirt road. i finally bit the bullet and bought some bilstien 5100's and WHAT A DIFFERENCE!! now i don't need to wear a tooth guard when driving. if you have to get a rough country lift kit. SAVE YOUR CASH. i was given the same warning and i kick myself everyday for not listening.

Pros: Very firm ride. Huge Cylinder. Much better then the stock hydro's that come with the kits.
Cons: None that I can think of.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Have these on my 4" Series II kit with 33" Tires. I highly recommend them. Very firm ride, does not bounce around like the old hydros and nitro shocks. The best shock I have used from Rough Country.

Comments: Mostly satisfied with RC shocks. As most have noted in tech forum, they are quite stiff. RCs provide good body control from pitching, cornering, stopping, etc. However, this is my DD, and I tow ATVs and other toys with it, so heavy duty shocks are a must.
