I have had the RC 4" X-series for about a year now with the 2.2 shocks. I THINK they ride just fine, but the only thing I have to compare them to is the unbelievably crappy condition my Jeep was in when I bought it. Completely clapped out Pro Comp 3" lift with ruined bushings, leaky shocks and a 3" body lift. Yeah, I know. Anyway, I also have a ginormous Warn 8274 winch on a home-made front bumper, rear bumper with home built swing out, a heavy 35" spare and home built rockers. So I have a lot more weight which might make a difference?
I always say that im not going to get into another RC lift discussion, but here I am.
Why does everyone get so butthurt over this topic? Its pretty simple. RC offers a VERY reasonable lift. Its a good price, IMO a good lift, and its easy to install. Why do people have such a problem understanding that?
Do you go to the Dollar Store and complain when the Patio Furniture wears out and breaks after 4 or 5 uses? Im not trying to say that RC's stuff is crap, I run the 2.5" lift and couldnt be happier with my decision. I was on a budget and was able to lift it and put news shoes on it and still have money for a couple cool accessories.
In all honesty, if you are on the fence, buy the lift. If you dont like it, youre only out $300 and you probably could sell the used lift for $150 to someone who will appreciate it.
More than 2 to 1 in favor of them and just as many negative comments from people know don't know what they're talking about.I just switched my brother's Skyjacker Hydros for the 2.2's.Ride is exactly the same,no better no worse.People love the Skyjackers here.Hmmm.
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
Why don't you stop throwing around your uneducated OPINION and let people who actually own these shocks give ACTUAL information?
Miss Amy's sensibilities and the language filter prevent me from telling you what I really think about you.
This thread sucks by the way, rc is cheap and i think they offer a good product. If something goes wrong (within warranty time) they are more than willing to fix it so i really don't see where all the hate is coming from. If you go and buy a 3,000 dollar system and it s**** the bed after a year and your warranties up you think that company will do anything either?
man you guys are like a bunch of babbies wa wa wa. i have the 2.2s and the ride is fine, not to hard not to soft, for what they are you cant beat them and they are warranty is real good. so i say they do ride ok and yes there is better out there and sure as **** worse
I've been running the 2.2 shocks in conjunction with the 3.25" (2.5" spring .75" spacer) for a few months now.
It rides slightly stiffer then the 80k OEM shocks, but that could be due to stiffer rate springs as well. I am very pleased with the on road characteristics. Even with the rear sway "removed" there doesn't seem to be all that much more body sway when driven like a race car.
They perform great. I have absolutely no issues whatsoever.
Not trail rated, but at least its trail tested and trail proven.
