Cheap ebay shocks
 
hey guys have any of you gone with the OE replacement shocks on ebay? they are $100 shipped. My rough country shocks where the worst ride i have ever had! i can not wait to get rid of them. I am going to be installing some new tires on the jeep this weekend, and while i was under there was thinking of replacing the shocks as well... let me know what you think of if anyone runs these what they think of them? i do not off road my truck, mainly tow and the occasional field to get a trailer or pull someone out.

*I have a 2in budget boost on the truck that will remain on when i install the new shocks

They're probably gonna be too short,Joe. If you notice it says"except up country suspension" which is a small factory lift that amounts to somewhere between 3/4" to an inch. If they don't want them on an upcountry suspension then 2" is def gonna be too much. Save up some coin and get some Bilstein 5100s.You'll be glad you did.

I definitely recommend bilsteins. I have the regular height set on my upcountry and they are amazing, the 5100s should give you plenty of working room with the lift.
