I got 5.5" of lift in my XJ. I need rear shocks for it. Any ideas what ones would work?

measure the distance between the 2 mount points for the shocks at ride hight,
it will also depend on how much up/down travel you have in the lift

I figured someone on here must have the same setup.
How are the rancho's so far?

Nah I kept it. Everytime I went to sell it to an interested buyer I got cold feet. I love it to much.
