Opinions on Fat Bob's 2' lift springs?
 
Anyone have any experience with them? Hows the ride? Quality? Actual lift?

Thinking about doing the kit that has the 2.5" fronts and 2" rears so it will sit more level. Seems to be a pretty good price. $299 with shocks.

Dustin,I'd just buy the springs or go with a shock upgrade. The base shocks you get with those kits are just hydros and marginal at best. I went through this when I bought my Rusty's lift years ago.

Good to know. There is an option to upgrade to the Bilsteins but doubles the price of the kit :eek:

Maybe I'll just buy the springs and find my own deal on shocks.

Honestly Dusty the $229 upgrade to the 5100s is a steal. They'll cost a hundred more even at the Shock Warehouse. Also that 12# heavier spring rate is just about perfect for a lifted WJ IMO. That's what my Rusty's springs are and I like em. I hope my new Rough Country setup isn't going to be too soft.

I'm pretty sure the Fat Bob's lifts come with gas charged shocks. I think this way because of the binder straps that they show on the shocks in the photos. I'm also under the impression that the Fat Bob's springs are actually BDS.
