Can dual shock hoops be installed on a TJ??

I've searched the internet looking for a set of shock hoops to install dual shocks on my 97 TJ. Can it be done??

Anything's possible if you make it yourself.

But why?

Are you making it into a high speed racer chaser?

Trying to control wheel hop?

Bottoming out too much?

Or wanting to "look cool?"

having two of the same shocks next to eachother does absolutely nothing except allow more oil to be cooled off. the damping is the same. so unless you plan on running a high speed 5000 mile baja race its pointless. it would be easy to do but i would suggest using one high quality shock.

I third it. If you have ever rode in the typical urban wanabe 'SUT' that had these on...the first thing your kidneys notice is how stiff the suspension is.

Those type of shocks have abosoluty no value on the trails......that is why most people who run the Rancho 9000's usually set it to 1 for off road and about 3 for on road....or, you can like one guy I know who removed his front sway bar completly and if he has to drive on the road, he just sets the Rancho's to 5.
