I have 2.0x10" fox resi's up front on my rubi. they perform amazing out in the desert and even on the rock AND on the street. i want to outboard before i do the rear, but running pro comps in the rear doesn't really help out performance haha

Is there a reason why you didn't go with the stem type mounting shocks up front? Those shocks look really nice and I might just get the fronts for now and save up for the outboard and longer shocks. Sort of the setup that you have, but how does your jeep drive with two very different type of shocks on it?

I didn't get the stem mount because i got these for free from a trade But it drives alright. the street is great, but when out in the desert, my rear end hates me while my front loves me haha

Would it be the same way if I were to get the fox 2.0 up frot for now and until I have the cash to stretch wheelbase and outboard, just go with the bilstein 5100 in te meantime for the rear?

5100's are a million times better than my es9000's. so it would be better then my set up for now

Yes as a matter of fact I have talked to sonny at down south motorsports and he would valve them initially to the same settings as Idaho's jeep which i believe is 55/45 and then they offer a free revalve afterthat if needed. I'm just not sure how it'd work with bilsteins out back.

What size travel are you running in front ?

10" id highly recomend getting the upgraded adjustables. my jeep still rides better then stock on the street.

Im strapped just before the shocks fully extend up front and i plan on burnin in some 2.0 king air bumps asap.

if your gonna start going fast id highly recomend grabbin the T&J performance gusset kit. jeepspeed is a blast but does wear things out fast and things like to bend and crack lol.

for your viewing pleasure

How much better are the adjustables because thats almost an another $340 just to be able to have all 4 shocks be adjustable! Damn lol I thought I'd just get them valved to fit my needs and be done with them.. The only problem I see with rear reservoirs is that they'll hit my rear exhaust pipe.
