Looking for something with a bit more comfort on the road. The Rock Sport seem a bit stiff on road. Maybe some that's adjustable.

It’s probably the springs, MC are pretty stiff. I actually found the rock sports to be pretty soft, comparable to the fox 2.0’s. What tire size are you running and at what psi? Also, how long have you had the lift on for?

I had the lift over a year now. I'm running 35' K02 at 32-33 PSI. So would it be better to replace the spring or the shocks?

Fox 2.0s drastically changed my ride on my 21 ram 1500 diesel I had. I would suspect they would do the same for the JL

I have the Fox 2.0 shocks that came with my Mopar lift on my Rubicon and they are great for me. Softer than stock on road. I am also running 35 inch KO'2s. I believe there are some companies you can also have them custom tuned with various valving as well depending on your ride preference.

That's going to get pricey

There really is no "budget" option to accomplish what you are looking for, being a shock that is tailored to you, as you don't seem to be satisfied with what you have.

Even if money is no object, you will get a dozen opinions, all of which would be good on which way to go. What you won't get is someone with a $100 per shock option that is better than all those other options or better than what you already have unfortunately.

Ride preference can dictate a lot of what we would recommend. We have got pretty good feedback on the Fox shocks and Bilstein's. We also have some new stuff coming soon that will have more range.
