I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com, and this is my review of the Fox 2.0 Performance Series IFP Shocks. Here we have both the front and the rear shocks for a zero to one inch lift, but we also have these shocks available for different lift sizes. The shocks in your JK control the ride quality more than any other individual component. Fox is known for building a really high quality shock that rides well and gives you a lot of control, both on road and off. So if you're looking for a premium shock to provide a quality ride, these are worth the look.There are two main categories of shocks to look at when purchasing new shocks for your JK. One is hydraulic shocks and the other is nitrogen charged shocks. A nitrogen charged shock will generally ride a little bit stiffer than a hydraulic shock, but the final ride quality really comes down to the valve end. One drawback to a hydraulic shock, is that if you work the shock really hard, maybe in high speed desert racing, running through washboards, or whoops at high speed, you'll eventually get some bubbling in the fluid which can cause cavitation and eventually shock fade. The nitrogen charge in the nitro shock will control the bubbling and eliminate that shock fade. Now like I said, these are the Fox 2.0 Series Performance Shocks. Fox also offers a 2.0 Evolution Series, and there are some minor differences. These Performance Series shocks have an aluminum body, as opposed to the steel body of the Evolution Series. The aluminum should be lighter weight and dissipate heat better. The shaft on these Performance shocks is chrome plated and made of a heat treated alloy, as opposed to the steel shaft on the Evolution Series. The shaft on the Performance Series will stand up to some serious abuse. Getting these shocks installed in your JK is really pretty straightforward. There is a difference between the front and the rear shocks. The rear have this bar pin at the top and a single shock bolt at the bottom. The front have the same shock bolt at the bottom, but at the top they have this threaded shaft that will go right into the shock mount on the frame. To get these shocks installed on your JK, you will want to remove the tire. It just gives you easier access to the bolts you need to get to. The entire install should take about 20 minutes to a half hour per shock, but that's going to greatly depend on how rusty your bolts are. I find that especially up front, on the top shock mounts, they can get really rusty and be a pain to remove. So before you get started, spray everything with a good penetrating oil. So for most of this install, you won't need any specialty tools. Just some sockets and open ended wrenches. However, in the front on the top mounts, you will need an Allen key to hold the shaft from spinning while you tighten down the nut. One thing I really like about these shocks is they come fully assembled with the bar pins and bushings in place. That's not the case with every other shock. This way, you don't have to fight with the vice to get everything pressed into place.Like I said before, Fox is a premium shock and the price reflects it. Fox is really well known in the racing world, and they do a lot of research into their valving to build a shock that provides a really comfortable ride. Some people think that a rough ride is just part of owning a Jeep. It's just part of the experience. But that's not necessarily true. A set of high quality shocks can provide a comfortable ride in your Jeep. So if ride quality isn't the most important thing to you, you can save a couple of dollars by going with a lot of other brands of shocks. But, if your Jeep is your daily driver and a comfortable ride is what's most important, in my opinion, these are worth a couple extra dollars.So that's my review of the Fox 2.0 Performance Series IFP Shocks that you can find right here at ExtremeTerrain.com.

Fox Performance Series Shocks
Installed a set of 4 on my 2017JK. Amazing difference from the stock shocks. Can’t believe how weak the stock shocks were compared to these new Fox Shocks !! 5 stars!!Helpful (0)

stock height 2008 4 door rubicon
Installation was pretty easy - checked out several videos on YouTube first. Put Frame up on jack stands then lowered the axle to make installation a bit easier. One thing I noticed is there isn't much up travel with these. I have about 3". Maybe that's what it should be because the shock tube is just about the size of the original red rubicon shock.Helpful (0)

Old man 2013 jeep
The fox performance 2.0 shocks both from and rear and the fox stabilizer is worth the price. Had them installed at my shop and all went well. The steering stabilizer was done faster then an oil change. I noticed the big difference as soon as I drove away. Better ride and controlHelpful (0)

I'm looking to replace stock shocks for my 4 door JK. It is stock with no lift but I wanted to add a leveling kit. would I need to go with the 0"-1" or the 1.5"-3.5".
Thank you for your question. Most leveling kits add 2 inches in the front and 1 inch of lift in the rear. You would want to confirm how much lift you are adding and get the appropriate shocks! If you have any more questions or concerns you can always contact us directly!
Will these fit my stock 2013 Jeep Wrangler 4 door Sahara even though it is at stock height.
Yes, these FOX 2.0 Performance Series Rear IFP Shocks are designed for Jeeps with no lift and up to a 1 inch lift.
Would this be the correct Fox 2.0 shock to replace the shocks on a non-lifted 2016 Rubicon?
Hello, yes, this would be the correct shock size.
I just install a Teraflex 1.5 performance leveling kit on my 2017 JKU. should I go 0-1 or 1.5-3.5 shock.
I'm not sure of the size lift I have on a used jk I purchased, looks like 3.5-4 inches. Will these 4-6 inch versions work at all if I'm at 3.5? I'm concerned that if I buy the 1.5-3.5 inch version I may come up short?
These will not work with a 3.5" lift.
For your application you'll be using the 1.5"-3.5" option.
This shock will give you a better ride than factory and should assist in the suspension with the items installed.
These shocks would be able to replace the ones you have on now without losing any ride height or anything.
The Fox Wrangler 2.0 Performance shock is designed to be used mainly off road and offers a stiffer ride, the Adventure series is designed for more on road usage and offer a more comfortable and softer ride.
Yes, these shocks are rebuildable.
The FOX 2.0 Performance Series IFP Front Shock will work with any lift kit or leveling kit that lifts the Jeep up an inch or lower.
Hello! If you were to purchase a 2.5 lift kit without shocks you would want to purchase 2 of these FOX 2.0 Performance Series IFP Front Shock for 1.5-3.5 in. Lift and 2 of the FOX 2.0 Performance Series IFP Rear Shock for 1.5-3.5 in. Lift found on https://www.extremeterrain.com/fox-rear-perf-ifp-15-35-980-24-888.html
With the FOX 2.0 Performance Series IFP Front Shock, units for the 2-4" lifts would offer more down travel, whereas units for 4-6" lifts would offer more up travel. Outside of this, performance should be similar between both lengths. That being said, the FOX 2.5 Factory Series Reservoir would offer several performance advantages over the various shocks that do not have external reservoirs.
I would suggest using the FOX 2.0 Performance Series IFP Front Shock for 1.5-3.5 in. Lift which can be found here: https://www.extremeterrain.com/fox-front-perf-ifp-15-35-980-24-887.html
