    Sizing. Skyjacker's Softride hydraulic shocks are more than capable to handle the trails along with your rig. The heavy duty, twin-tube construction is designed to withstand severe punishment, and the expanded fluid reservoir reduces internal temperatures and foaming for consistent performance. This rear shock is for Jeeps with a 1 to 3 inch lift.

    Properties. Maintain your lift kit's performance with Skyjacker's shocks. This Softride shock automatically adjusts to changes in terrain whether it's a pitted trail or ill maintained pavement. Equipped with the unique, multi-stage velocity sensitive valving, this shock allows for maximum articulation while off-roading and a smooth highway ride home. The twin-tube body, 5/8 hardened double chrome rod, internal rebound bumper, and oversized piston head are ready to hit the trails when you are.

    Notable Features. This shock will also provide a nice accent to your Jeep's look. The red polyurethane bushings assist with shock response, and alongside the red polyurethane boot, a full set will turn heads. Trust your off-road cred to Skyjacker.

    Application. Fits 1997 - 2006 TJ Wranglers with 1 to 3 inch lift systems.

            Great Ride

            I actually replaced my Old Man Emu Nitro shocks with the SkyJackers. With the Old Man it rode like I had over inflated tires. Now rides smother.

            Great product

            Shock look great, don’t come with new bolt which would be nice, but not the end of the world. If you can get the old bolts out it’s a fairly easy install. Mine didn’t quite go that way. But a great product.

            Just what I was looking for

            I decided to lift my Jeep 1.5" in front and 1.25" in the rear. I was looking for a ride similar to stock, and I needed to replace my factory original shocks with 125k miles. After breaking them in for a couple hundred miles, I have been very pleased over the last couple thousand.

            Smooth, control

            Love these shock on my 97 TJ, just right, really smooth out my ride and still yielded full control around corners, and sharp turns on road. Off road what another welcomed difference, a joy to ride over bumps whoop de doos, wash board roads. No more tank feel. Thanks

            buy them elsewhere

            First of all, it took over a week to even process my order, and it wasn't until after I called them that they decided to ship the item. Compared to what I am used to with Amazon, this was pretty bad. Reminded me of online shopping from 10 years ago... As far as the product goes, the ride is much firmer than I expected, but they do seem to work fine. The installation was not bad, however, getting the shocks put together was a little difficult since I don't have a press.

            The shocks work as described. I have had them for a few weeks now, and they seem to work and ride well.

            Just what I needed

            Not a mechanic but the install process was pretty easy. Now my tj ain't making a rattle and rides like new.

            Surprised and pleased with the control these shocks gave back to me. My TJ no longer "JUMPS" when you hit bumps. Have a 3" lift and 33's on my 98 and these shocks are well worth the price.

            great shocks

            Did 3 inch lift on jeep kept factory shocks. After 3 weeks they gave out due to being over extended. Jeep road like a log wagon even before the shocks gave out. The price was reasonable on a pair of these soft rides. So I ordered them. These shocks ride great. A jeep will never ride like a Cadillac, but this is as close add it can be. Alot smoother ride, lots of travel for flex. I highly recommend these shocks.

            Great Replacement, nice ride quality

            I bought my 04 TJ with a two inch spacer lift previously installed, and needed to replace them shocks. I chose these shocks and also bought the matching front set. Overall these shocks really helped improve my ride quality and were easy to install. Would buy again if needed.
