All four of your vehicle’s wheels—lifted or stock—could use the sky-high handling and smoothness of Skyjacker Nitro 8000 Shocks. They’re highly-charged with 150psi of nitrogen gas for a smooth, consistent ride that adjusts to road conditions.

Skyjacker Nitro 8000 Shocks boast multi-stage velocity-sensitive valving that changes shock performance to speed and road conditions. Further fortifying Skyjacker Shocks’ strength and smoothness is their twin tube construction, along with heavy-duty 14mm rods.

Skyjacker Nitro 8000 Shocks come in front and rear sets, as well as sizes that accommodate most any level of lifting. Long-lasting red polyurethane bushings and boots are included with every shock. And, all you have to do to get the right shocks is select your vehicle above. What’s even better, your Skyjacker Nitro 8000 Shocks carry a Lifetime Warranty.

Comments: when i did my BB, i held out for good shocks and this is what i got, my only suggestion would be to reuse your old upper shock bushings because the new poly jobs are to small and will pull through the hole and cut into basically circles.

Comments: I like them, the last set was stock at a 105,000miles. I wheeled them once at Wachita ORP in MO, I found they are very good off road, but I am comparing them to my old shocks. I like them alot everything is better on and off raod.

Comments: A great improvement over OEM ride and cornering. Polly bushings provided with shocks could be molded better. Other than that, flawless.

Comments: The bushings SUCK. I had to replace all of them on 3 of the 4 shocks. Other than that the shocks ride firm.

Comments: LOVE UM! I replaced the old worn out X-year old EMU shocks that were banging around under there and it felt like a new Jeep. My buddies tell me that they are a little softer than what they ride but as a new comer to Jeeps and off roading these suit me perfectly.

Comments: These shocks have made my ride a bit smoother, but not quite as much as I was hoping for. I've heard the Hydro's are smoother, but that the Nitros are more durable. I'm still in the testing phase.
