I’ve been looking into purchasing a new lift kit, with shocks. 2 inch lift. I’ve found mix ideals, but as a general rule, how would you guys rank the various companies that make lifts ?
Which would be the best ?

Wider body = more gas/oil capacity = better performance.

For me Rancho 9000XL shocks are dirt cheap and have 2.75" tubes, vs others with 2-2.5" tubes. Good enough in my books.

Re-opening an older thread. Are Rubicone OEM shocks any good. I have heard for years that OEM shocks on most cars are garbage. Is it worth it to keep them and use extension brackets or are Rancho and Fox and Bilstein etc all so much better? This is a question for a mostly street driven Jeep and some fire roads.
