Pros: Not too stiff. Definite improvement over stock.
Cons: none
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I had a tough time deciding between these and the RE's. I was glad that I decided on the Skyjackers. They have a good ride to them, and ride well both on pavement and off.

Price: $34.00
Pros: Cheaply priced shock. Comes with boot.
Cons: This soft ride shock flat out stinks. If you want to bounce around like a grandma car with bad air bags this is the shock for you. Would never recommend these shocks to anyone. Junk in my book.
Recommended? No

Comments: These shocks ride like worn out shocks straight out of the box. Horrible ride quality, bouncy and just flat out not a shock for a Jeep. I will be taking off as soon as replacements in another brand are ordered. As Sir Charles would say "that's just terrible."

Price: $35.00
Pros: Nice Ride. Replaced stock shocks.
Cons: I was surprised to have to assemble the shocks. I thought they used to come assembled.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I replaced the stock shocks. They had 135K on them and one was blown out (leaking). The Jeep handled funny and was too firm riding (except the RR where the shock was blown). Out of the box, the Skyjackers seemed like they might be to soft; so I was concerned. They ride nice and are not too bouncy.
If I had it to do over, I might choose the Nitros and a 2" lift kit.

Price: $35.00
Pros: cheap, seem to ride just fine
Cons: not really the length I needed
Recommended? Yes

Comments: My only complaint is that the collapsed/extended length isn't what I really needed. They work fine for now but I either A) have more lift that I thought or B) the lift heights suggested in the shock applications are a little off

Price: $35.00
Pros: none
Cons: Came with bad bushings; too soft
Recommended? No

Comments: Had on set of 4wd hardware shocks, it rode great, but everyone says Hydro's are the bomb, sooooo... I bought a set, didn't put them on for six months, finally did and they're way too soft, like they're not even there...hit a little bump and jeep swayed and teetered like I'm disco'ed...hit the gas or brakes and it felt like the way a monster truck looks when it does the same, just too bouncy...maybe I got a bad set 'cause some say they're too stiff for them. Put the 4WD shocks back on Monday night, then drove out to my camp...100% better.

Pros: Smooth ride
Cons: None so far. We will see how long they last.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: When I bought my TJ the guy I purchased it from said there was a noise coming from the rear end and he thought it was the rear shocks. Turned out the bushings in the track bar were bad. He bought me 4 brand new Skyjacker Hydro 7000's.
