Need longer shocks.  Thinking Fox 2.0. Comments or other suggestions?

Currently running white body BDS.

I got the 2.0 on mine. Seems rough with no weight and great with. Good going fast over bumps. Haven't played on rocks yet. Welcome to come drive but it's a soccer mom version. Prob a lot different than yours.

Thanks Richard. Saw those and have ridden with Kevin a couple times myself. Rather have new and not RC.

Jimmie, that's interesting. I thought they were known for a good ride.

They are BDS tuned? Someone can jump in here and help but I think that company tunes them for a certain ride with a certain weight? I can tell a huge difference when I have 4 people in it. So I think they just assume people that spend the cheese on these will have after market bumpers winch etc etc....I don't have any of that so the jeep is pretty light in comparison. And to be fair, I think all shocks are somewhat set up for a certain ideal weight so I'm thinking I would feel the same with any shocks.

I've been pleased with my bilstein 5100s. I think they handle well.

Yeah, Bilsteins are definitely a consideration as well.

I'm not sure, except a bunch! The front isn't as heavy as the back, of course. I'd guess couple hundred pounds on the front, and probably 300 - 350 pounds on the back (just the wheel is around 125 pounds).

It would be safe to say most people using a $400 set of shocks has 300+ on back and 150+ on front. Not counting any fender or slider weight. So good bit of difference.

Depends on your coils and some other factors.  The shocks are the brains of the suspension.  Google..."my jeep rides like #$@$" and you will see what I mean.   You can not just throw any ol' shock on.  There are a few companies that have taken their time to tune their shocks to their coils.  This list is not all inclusive but I know Teraflex, MetalCloak, Evo, Rancho, OME, have done very well tuning their shocks for their suspensions.

Alot of what you will find with that search is people running OEM psi in load range c tires and blaming it on shocks.  Hahjahaha
