What is the most cost effective shock upgrade for TF coil lift?

I have the Tera Flex Coil lift while running stock shocks and extenders. I want to upgrade the shocks for better drivability on road and trail. I will be upgrading to a full 3.5in lift next year so I donít want to go crazy, but I need something to hold me over.

I will have weight too.. JKU w/ hard top, tow pkg, 35in tire, about to buy bumpers and carrier.

Would swapping in red rubi shocks help? Could I eliminate the extenders with those or no? I mainly just hate the fact that my shock assembly is now 2 pieces.

I was happy with my skyjacker hydros.

I don't even own a jeep anymore

Nothing wrong with the extensions....but if you have a 4 Wheel Parts close by their ES9000 shocks would be an ok alternative to the extensions until you upgrade your suspension....$160 or so for 4.......but thats money you could be saving for your new suspension system.

So you think I should just throw in some rubi take offs in the meantime? Also, will the red shocks have part numbers tailored to weight? Or does that only apply to springs?

Do you have the Rubi take offs? You can check the measurements against your current shocks to see if there is any benefit. On my Rubi I think the shocks were the same length, just beefier.

The rubicon shocks have slightly more travel and are a bit firmer. They are perfect for Teraflex leveling coils. Not sure what size springs you are using.
