Actually it's 4" front/ 5" rear. I spent all my money on my Rubicon and I'm trying to fix this one up as money permits. I drive this one much more as my DD.

BDS is good stuff. How is the ride?

Like most of the nitro shocks I've tried, great offroad and on big stuff, but I can run over a quarter on the street and tell if it's heads or tails. I love the Rancho 9000XL adjustable shocks on my Rubicon. It's nice to click a tab and adjust them for the terrain you're on. I got them with only 3000 street miles on craigslist for $120 for all four. Otherwise I couldn't afford them.

Sure thing. I've tried so many bad riding shocks on my 18 Jeeps over the years. I've heard good things about the less expensive Rancho rs5000X shocks on TJ forums. Nothing like the crap riding old rs5000 shocks without the "X". I haven't tried them personally, so I can't give an honest opinion. Nice to be a new member here. :thumbsup:
