Went from Skyjacker nitro to RE monotube shocks...opinions

So i did it, after thinking about it for a while, asking for advices here in the forum, i did it. Yesterday i installed my monotube, just the front ones, the rear will arrive today so if i'll have some time i'll put'em tonight.

First of, thanks to all the people that told me to go with the Monotubes instead of the OME. The handling, ride quality, stability... simply great! there is a huge difference between the 2 brand of shocks. With the sky(craper)jacker nitro i had: to much body roll, when coming to a sudden stop i had to much "nose down" effect, while cornering i had to slow down a lot. Now it's all over, no body roll, cornering now it's really nice! the jeep it's just a lot more stable and handle so much better! i really like them a lot! Here in mexico unfortunatly the general road condition it's nothing comparable to what you (lucky) guys have in the US. they are horrible, really. And those shocks just make those roads a lot more driveables.
