Comments: These shocks ride great and are very responsive. They provide a stiffer ride than stock but soak up large bumps much better. They were pretty easy to install and give an overall firmer, better feel.

Pros: Great ride
Cons: none
Recommended? Yes

Comments: My Tj came with a Pro Comp 4inch lift and ES3000 shocks, the ride was very stiff. I kept hearing about how good the RE monotubes are, so I finally broke down and bought them. I only wish I didn't wait so long. These are the way to go!

Pros: Nice firm ride, not harsh
Cons: None so far
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I have just installed Rubicon Express 2" Budget Boost with (4) Monotube shocks and Rubicon Express steering stabilizer/dampener. So far I have driven it 100 miles on the turnpike, back roads, hills, potholes, etc. Very nice ride firm but not harsh. Great over washboard roads, potholes, dips, etc. Highly recommend. Hope they last a long time.
