2.0 RRD Emulsion Shocks

Just got my 2.0 RRD shocks from Rock Krawler the other day. Jeremy at Rock Krawler assisted me in finding the right specs and we got underway. Shocks shipped out to California in a timely manner and the shocks delivered in great condition. I was impressed with the quality and had no issues as some have posted on other reviews. After eating my Wheaties I got down to installing them. I will say that I was blown away on the ride quality from my previous shocks. I actually get a smoother ride with no body roll. Amazing how they are stiffer than my other shocks but are tuned so well as to be more comfortable. I would recommend these shocks hands down. Great job Rock Krawler and thanks Jeremy.

From the pics, it doesn't appear to have much up travel...

They do look great. Are they adjustable in any way. Are those fitting for pressure/oil?

Maybe they need a nitrogen charge? Or maybe he wants more droop?

I can't tell if the bump stops are set to hit before the shocks do.

I have Poly shock relocation brackets on as the stock mounting brackets were about ready to fall off from getting hung up on rocks. However doing this has caused the shock mount to raise about 1.5" to gain better clearance and as a result I obviously have lost 1.5" of upward travel on the shock itself. However the upward travel is limited to the size bump stops you have so I really haven't lost anything as the bump stop hits prior to the shock bottoming out. Now when someone designs an upper relocation bracket to offset the 1.5" of lost at the bottom then I can get a shorter bump stop and gain, but for now I'm living with it and it's all good.

I do however appreciate you noticing and looking out for a fellow jeeper.

The shocks are filled with nitrogen and the fittings you see are for adjusting. However, I would not try this unless you know what your doing.

Hey Rob. The shocks are set at 50/70 so they should be right on the money. The bump stops hit just prior to bottoming out.

I saw your relocation brackets. That makes more sense than a nitrogen charge as the springs are carrying the weight. Head up my ass. I was thinking about air shocks as those are emulsion shocks. deet dee dee !

When I had shocks, thats what I liked about the Fox Reservoir shocks; you get 11" of travel with a short shock body so they worked out perfect with raised mounts. Those RRDs are just a little too long in the body for raised mounts.

Agreed with that. My SSV shocks had the same tube length

Not a Carlos fan at all are you?

Oh, and to stay on topic, I like those RRD's! I'm considering them myself when I get my RK lift. Jeep's gotta' have the hail damage repaired first, though.

Choose your friends & choose your enemies. But choose wisely.
