Some help with new shox please

So I'm looking at getting some new shox in my sport and I'm confused with these.
It says under lift 1.5" - 3.5". does that mean I have to have a 1.5" to 3.5" lift to run these?

If you have to ask the question, you don't need fox shocks. At all.

Get a pair of bilstein 5100s. They're cheaper and will serve you well

+1 on the Bilsteins. I run OME Nitrochargers however and theyre great, pretty sure you can run them on a stock setup too

How often do you race the Baja 1000 with your jeep?

Just keep everything in perspective. A set of 4 bilsteins is a little more than 1 fox

Yeah but fox shocks look so rad!

Really though, 5100s work very well on the jeep. Even hauling through rocky areas and washboard on 35s they hold up very well. There are so many weak point on the stock jk suspension and steering that would be destroyed before you'd overheat or have problems with the bilsteins IMO. Spend the money elsewhere.

im with spyder on this, if you must spend the money they are well worth it. but i doubt youd notice the difference between them and bilsteins if you're only on the road.

To answer your original question, yes. Yes, you need a lift to run those shocks.
