Rubicon suspension up front with 3/4 spacer. The rear has “1” Synergy springs. I do carry considerable weight on our trips and the Jeep appears to have a factory rake when loaded so in that circumstance, I’m unsure if longer than stock shocks are needed. Correct?

Really, I’m looking for a little better ride on the trail. A simple adjustable setup might be interesting to me.

I suppose I might need to take measurements to verify whether stock length shocks or longer is needed. If longer is needed, considering my ride height loaded, would I need different bump stops?

Thanks for any help.

Best way if you have the time and patience is to pull springs and cycle suspension to get measurements.

If you can get shock length measurements, you can compare that to where the shocks sit at ride height. That will give you a good idea on how much up/down travel you have. Lifting the Jeep higher and keeping the same length shocks will reduce your droop travel from ride height. May not sound like a big deal, but it can affect your ride quality. However within 1" of added lift, shouldn't make a huge difference.
