    Jk adjustable Fox shock VS non adjustable Fox shock

    Is it worth it to buy a $350 adjustable Fox shock?

    It depends heavily on what youre going to use the Jeep for. For me and the way I use my Jeep, yes they were worth it when I bought them. I have since moved on to a different shock but they too are adjustable

    I second the adjustable, especially if you DD it. Keep them tight for good road manors and he loosen them up on the trail for a smoother ride.

    I have them and they definitely help on a DD. Make them even nicer by getting them tuned to your Jeep

    I am running Bilstein 5100 with synergy springs. I feel that on the trail they are too stiff. I run 12 psi on a D load range tire. Jk 2 doors

    I have the non adjustable Fox 2.0 Performance Series and am very happy with them. I like how they perform.

    Jk adjustable Fox shock VS non adjustable Fox shock

    I have the fox 2.0 non adjustable. I like them although they are still a bit stiffer than Id like on the trail. Id think getting non-adjustables from somewhere like Accutune and having them custom tuned for your Jeep would be more beneficial than having an adjuster knob.
    Plus its only $270ish per shock total.

    I think I will go for adjustables. I won't regret it. It's 130 more per shock lol.

    Do yourself a favor and get your shocks from Accutune. It doesnt cost more and will be a completely different shock.

About us
wayoflife is a moniker that Ive 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.
