Skyjacker BlackMax Rear Shocks?

Anyone have any experience with Skyjacker BlackMax rear shocks? They list an application for the Commander (B8588) with a 2" lift. I know everyone here suggests the Bilsteins but for $50 ea, I'm wondering if these are a decent, budget friendly option to go with the RC spacer lift?

I did a search and couldn't find much. Thanks!

I just looked up the specs, and looks like they're listed as 2" lift, but length is listed as 24.75/14.82

NC_Commando, I've never heard of these shocks.

That doesn't necessarily mean that they are bad - just that I've never heard or seen them mentioned here on the forum in my time here.

Just remember, as a general rule, you get what you pay for.
