when you did your outboard shocks did you have to but longer ones?

I have a rock krawler 5.5" long arm in my garage with bilstein long travel shocks but im thinking of staying with the 4" springs so maybe if I do an outboard conversion I can still use the shocks.

I agree with Dave, the Jeep just feels more stable. You just feel it in the seat when you're driving it. I have had friends who own other jeeps drive it and they say that the quality of ride is surprisingly good, for a jeep. I have posted some of these pictures before, but...
