Hey guys im looking to get a set of four skyjacker nitro shocks and i wasnt sure if anyone has gotten them and could tell me the difference from stock. my jeep has 46k miles on it and i think its time for some new shocks as i look at them they seem to be dieing. i also want the ride to be a little bit smoother as well. Thanks!

I can tell you nothing about the skyjackers. Bilstein 5100's have been fantastic on my wife's Jeep.

never met a guy or gal who's had good experiences with anything skyjacker and because of it, i might recommend against it. as mentioned above, bilstein 5100's are great monotube shocks and i would highly recommend them over what you are looking at now.

smoother ride and nitro shocks should not be in the same sentence.. IMO

I want the bilsteins but they don't offer it unless you have some sort of a lift and I can only find the skyjackers that work because I'm running stock.

For want of Bilsteins, he adds a lift....

Bilstein's 4600's come in stock height & have long been a staple in the offroading world.
