And that where the Mojave 2.5 by-pass shocks come in to play :)

They are my first time with by-pass shocks. A true game changer.
I would be very curious to see how they would handle on a stock JLUR. I'm often tempted to give it a shot whenever I see Mojave takeoffs come up for sale.

The Synergy Springs I have on now, are the closest to stock rates.
While I have not tried the Mojave on stock Rubicon springs, I would say they are very close to stock rubi reds. They will be a touch softer " road ride" , but will take the hit in the bypass zone without "bang or clank" of bottoming out.

Honestly, I would not spend the money on an up graded shock unless I went up to a bypass shock. The Mojave is a cheap way to get into the bypass shocks. I have run the Fox 2.0 Accutune LSC adjustable 2.0. Then other's on my TJ. The up graded aftermarket are good, but it's a real change to go bypass.
I have a set of the Fox 2.5 DSC I'm going to test soon. I'm too cheap to buy the 3.0 Fox bypass. Unless I find a set used for a good buy. I have not seen any for sale yet.

I was pretty impressed with the Mojave set up when I test drove it. Told the dealer I wanted to go through some dips to test it out. His response was to direct me to this closed dirt road where I proceeded to test the hydraulic bumps a few times. lol

Ultimately the wife preferred the JL to the JT and here we are. Living in the desert makes me long for hydraulic bumps and bypass shocks.
