Shocks or rear tier carrier.

So it's a 08 2dr rubicon 2.5 inch skycraper on 35inch km2s and I don't know what to do...... I need a bumper/tier carier but I need shocks too because the skycraper ones are shot. What a shock! Haha. Soooo Iv done a ton of reading on this forum and read rk designed thier springs to work with the bielistens so should i try and wait to find some rk springs or just change out shocks and keep the skycraper springs. I would think the shit skycraper shit would not kill the new shocks as fast as the ones I'm runing now.
Idk how many miles these shocks have on them bc I bought the Jk with the skycraper on it other wise i would have rk on my rig.
And well tier carrier bc the tail gate rattles like crazy whit the 35 on it and I hate driving the new born around with out a spare. Also hate driving to work with out a spare I mean shit happens and I do have a patch kit with me and Iv had to use it ha
sooo and do I get shocks or carrier?
Ha how will I convince the warrdin I need these thing.

Seriously whatever your smokin i want some....i get that your asking weither or not to replace the shocks because it sounds like the ride sucks.
as for a tire carrier...i look at it as an item to finsh things off ona build....you can always toss the spare in the back till you can afford one...I vote shocks first because that will let you know if you solved your ride issue or you need other parts like like coils track bars ect...

What kind of spacers are you running? I have the Spidertrax and haven't had any issues with the Jeep pulling...are yours hub-centric?

I THINK what i'm reading through that, is that your lift is ok, but you want to go to RK springs eventually, but your rear tailgate is now rattling.


if that's the case, i think tire carrier makes more sense, since your tailgate is starting to go.

31 jeeps in... still have issues

crapper has "two" p's for what it's worth lol

You've had too many redhots in your leftime and blood flow to your brain has been drastically reduced as a result.

Pain heals, chicks dig scars, glory lasts forever.
