    I started with the Pro-Comp 2.5 springs with their ES9000 shocks and transitioned to the 3" EVO Plush Rides and like how it handles. If you have the opportunity catch a ride in a vehicle that is running the Rock Krawler springs and then one with the EVO Plush Rides and see which one you like. Also the shocks do make a huge difference. Before I got my RS9000XL's I ran the Plush Rides with the ES9000's and it was rough. Guess I am just old and like a smooth ride.

    Thank you folks for the good input.....

    It becomes really hard to determine what we need when the information is very limited or just one sided... or a battle between good vs evil...lol

    The funny thing about all this...... I live 8 blocks away from EVO Manufacturering. Before I go there and get to asking questions.....

    After reading this I turned my shocks up to 7 (from 2) and it's too harsh for me. Still trying to find that perfect setting with these shocks..

    Give it some time. 7/8 is going to be firmer .. No doubt about it. The issue at lower settings, the amount of body movement. It's hard to get comfortable driving getting tossed side to side.

    I definetely felt more confident with the handling but felt every imperfection in the road. I also am without a steering stabilizer until Monday so I'm sure that's playing a part in it too.

    G-man,

    I am curious, what did you finally decide on? Rock Krawler or Evo Manufacturing?

    I have the new RK triple rates on my JKU and have been very happy with the ride quality. I don't think you could go wrong with either choice.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
