Truck Shocks on a Jeep CJ7?
Is anyone running/ has anyone ever run truck shocks on their rig? If so, how do/did they ride?
I am currently looking for long travel shocks to put on my soa CJ7, but don't really want to pay the premium price for top tier brand name shocks. I have been looking through the Monroe catalog and have found some shocks (part # 911268) that may be the right length I need, but they are made for Ford F250/F350 trucks. Monroe says that each shock is custom valved for the intended application, and I would imagine that these trucks have a curb weight of about twice of what my Jeep has (Not to mention a payload capacity several magnitudes higher). That being said, I am afraid that these shocks may be much too stiff to make the discounted price worth it. However, I really like the option of a shock with acceleration sensitive damping technology. Hopefully someone out there can give me some advice based off of real world experience.
