Rough Country Vertex 8 Stage Reservoir Shocks <<---- Clicky

Behold: The pinnacle of off-road performance and smooth ride quality in an affordable package has arrived with Rough Country’s 2.5 Vertex 8-Stage Adjustable Reservoir Shocks. These high-performance reservoir shocks offer an elite ride-quality in every situation you face, with an 8-stage adjustable damping system that lets you perfectly dial-in your ride for whatever lies ahead. Whether you want a smooth ride for city streets or the ultimate damping for off-road mayhem, a quick spin of the dial lets you adjust each shock to the exact performance specifications you desire.

Rough Country’s Nitrogen-charged Vertex Shocks feature a monotube design with an external reservoir for increased oil capacity and damping sensitivity. Each shock features a massive 2.5in diameter piston and a high-flow 22mm chrome hardened piston rod that simply dwarfs the competition. When it comes to investing in a high-end shock, you’ll be pleased to find that Rough Country’s immense 2.5in piston design is beefier and offers an impressive 56% greater fluid capacity than the average 2.0 reservoir shock.

A 3-stage, fortified seal system ensures your Vertex shocks keep kicking while the beautifully designed honed steel body offers a long lifespan of reliable performance and killer good looks. This shock is designed to be a true eye-catcher, with a beautiful silver finish, laser-etched RC logo, matching "Vertex" decals, and CNC-machined Billet Aluminum accents. Rear shocks feature a durable bracket system with laser-etched logo and a premium braided steel reservoir line. Includes an Industry-leading 3-year Warranty!

Curious to see how these stack up against the Falcon 3.3 shocks since they are slightly more expensive than Falcon's.

The Falcons are $1599.99 free shipping which is the same as the Vertex we sell (looking at Teraflex site) I would also like to see a side by side comparison by a non biased person. Ours has a slightly larger body and the rod is 3mm larger also. The Vertex has been a great addition to the RC line and we will have monotube shocks coming soon also.

Great looking shock no doubt. The extended length however.... Is it the same for front and rear?

Really looking forward to someone running them to compare. So good to see more options in shocks - thanks for that.

The front and rear measurements are close. For a 3.5-4.5in shock the fronts are 26.5 - 16.1 and the rear are 26.9-17.1

They are much better ride than stock. Softest setting is more plush on the chattery high-speed stuff, but still better on the low speed for bottoming resistance. Rebound is a dramatic/huge improvement over stock. Makes you feel like you can blast through the nasty at much higher speed, the rig is so much more stable.

Question for Rough Country:
I notice in your pics that the rear shock has the nitrogen service port on the bottom, but the clicker adjustment is on the top. Why the difference? Mine have the clicker adjustment on the bottom (like the pics of your shocks not installed), which makes it hard to see what setting it is on without getting under the corner of the Jeep.
