POLL! Rough Country 2.2 shocks

It seems most are happy with the RC 2.2 shocks and then there are a few who absolutely hate them so why not have a poll to see where the forum stands.

This poll is for Rough Country 2.2 shock owners only please. If you don't own RC products then no need to flame them here.

If you have not put at least 500 break in miles on your kit then please don't vote yet either.

Try doing some research before you comment. Go over to the noob thread and hang out with all the hard asses who have the most uncomfortable 2.2 suspension ever made. OLD MAN EMU all the way...enough said!

The only one that seems confused is you since you obviously didn't read the first post. If you DO NOT own RC 2.2's then keep your comments about them in some other thread please. Thanks.

BTW, I've been around here a lot longer than you, so maybe you should step into the newbie thread yourself and swing from OME's nuts.

my 2.2's were definitely not what i thought they would be. i have put prolly 4-5k on them and the ride is seriously crap. the only nice ride i achieve or for that matter close to factory ride is when i am towing my trailer or boat. on a separate note about a month ago i discovered the "T" brackets on the rear were both broken. RC quickly sent me new ones to solve the problem. ride still isnt great but RC is still a solid company in my opinion.

hmmmm I sorta get your point...but the only reason you would be installing RC is because your poor. Your not poor are you. And if you have something against OME they are a million other shock choices before one should settle for RC 2.2. Bilstein and Ranch 9000 MyRide and 2 great options. Don't be bitter that you wasted money and time putting RC under your jeep. You should start a donations paypal thing and then I can donate to your cause...Atleast your rear end be happier with a smoother ride. Ill be the first to donate to help Mr. viper in this time of economic crisis. Help out a fellow jeeper who is in need of $ and advice. Godspeed viperlx! hahaha

I like how you tell someone that has been a member four years longer than you to go hang out in the noob section, when you don't even know how to fill out your profile.

I have 2k miles on mine, and 2 off road trips, and it still rides rough. The front shocks have about 4.5" of up travel, and 4" till bump stops hit. Rears only have about 2" of up travel, and about 5" till the bump stops hit. Did RC ever replace the long rear shocks for people with some shorter ones?

You guys need to stop feeding the obvious troll. And way to show superiority by telling someone you have been here longer. It's like saying I'm older then you so therefore I'm smarter. Bravo..... *claps hands slowly*.

Plus in the five years you have been here, you only have 64 post, so you can't be all that involved.

I make 1.75 million a year and I didn't care for the ride.

See what I did there? I added how much money I made, adding that to the equation which did not matter. Sweet.

I actually did buy the RC kit. I did not enjoy it. I have since replaced it. I have friends that run the RC stuff and like it. It's all up to you. I wanted a better ride on the road. I have that now. If you don't care, and you want something that will perform alright then pick up the RC kit. It's a rougher ride than I wanted though.

If you let every tool that derails your thread get you worked up, you'll never learn anything. Just get used to it.

There is nothing wrong with RC. I didn't like the ride, but on the other hand, you couldn't pay me to run OME shocks. They are too soft for the trail. That's why I ended up doing the Ranchos. They are as soft or hard as I want them to be for the road or trail.

If you made 13 pesos a week it still wouldn't make the ride of the 2.2s feel any better. I replaced mine with OME and couldn't be happier.
