New 2021 Rubicon 4 door XR looking to upgrade from factory shocks. Do I choose something that is for 0-2" lift? None are specific for the XR package.
Thanks for any help..... Ken

I’m in the same boat. I’ll keep track of this thread.

Choose the shocks based off of collapsed length. You want the shock to be less than or equal to the lengths below. The closer you are to the exact number, the less wasted shock stroke.

Front collapsed length = 17.25"
Rear collapsed length = 19"

This is the best info I have for the XR's factory shocks, but it may be possible to go slightly longer. Someone with an XR will need to verify by removing the shocks & bump stops, then compressing the suspension and measuring the eye-to-eye lengths.

I have an XR that I upgraded to Fox 2.0 shocks. I ordered the one for 0-1.5” lift and it worked perfectly. Full stuff still has a little more room for the shock, and under full droop it allows for a little more travel without maxing out any brake lines etc.
