im not a fan of RC shocks but those 2.0's arent terrible. a few people on here seem to like them. you could run that on top of your up-country springs and clear rubi take-offs with minor trimming for a pretty good setup

the one jeep I had them on was stiff as S%#T. I know its a jeep but I dont wanna be tossed around on every freaking pothole I hit. Of course, that was years ago and they have apparently improved. Maybe someone with the newer stuff will chime in.

I have the 4" RCX lift on mine. Don't have any problems with the shocks. Rides pretty smooth. They have changed them in the last few years.

I know you probably heard this a million times but.... Save a little longer and get the bilsteins. You will be much happier in the end. I had the RC shocks and within 2 months upgraded to bilsteins. It then cost me more in the end. If you get these you might always wonder if your ride quality could be better. And that's a little much for just a bb look on ebay all the spacers are pretty much the same. Good luck.

No the price wasn't bad. You get a lot more with the x as opposed to the regular 4" lift. Pretty easy install too.
