    I believe you are talking about the King 2.5 shocks which are $1642 not $600. You can use any shock, with the correct length, with the enforcer. The kings with that lift kit were tuned specifically for the JK by ORE. But if those break the budget then you can go with a cheaper shock...most go with Ranchos or Bilsteins if they don't go with Kings.

    I thought you only need to drag link flip with the 4in enforcer ?

    You don't "need" it with either, but it sure improves steering geometry, bump steer, and probably costs less than an adjustable track bar.

    What olram30 said. A draglink flip/front track bar relocation kit is designed to correct your steering geometry after installing a 3" lift or more. While it isn't "needed", installing it will help improve handling.

    I always hear the complaints that the needed 3" bump stop kills up travel, but I don't see how a person can go less than 3" . I had to trim some metal and tires are as close as they can get to the fenders.

    Even if you didn't have to do any trimming, the primary purpose of bump stop extensions is to prevent the over compression of your coils. It just cracks me up when I hear about guy who complain about their coils sagging unevenly or overall loss of lift and when you ask them about their bump stop extensions, they say "I don't have any" or have ones that are too short.

    not to hijack but my JKURX will be heavy I have a poison spider front bumper with a winch and a poison spider rear bumper with tire carrier I read that if you don't sit at 3in with a flip kit you will have problems with clearance that's why I was thinking about going with the Rockcrawler 2.5 X factor any opinions or experiences with a similar set up like mine? I don't mind spending the 299 for the drag link flip but if I get the evo 3 inch and after time it settles down to 2.5 inches well I have problems?

    There is a chance your axle and steering wheel may become off-center. Although, I wouldn't think you'd have much issue with the plush rides sagging.

    It won't break the budget but it's a lot of jack for shocks. If it's what I need to do to get the best ride i'll do it; however if I get Ranchos or Bilsteins for half the price and not notice a difference I would rather do that!!

    I have a heavy jeep with 3" plush rides, drag link flip and 37" tires. No complaints.

“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.
