Unless you're fully aware what all is required to run Jeep coils, I'd stick with regular RBV coils (of which Skyjacker seems to be the best).

For you, I'd suggest sticking with RBV Skyjacker 6" coils, they ride pretty good, and flex fairly good. They seem to be the best all around DD/wheeling coil.

If you are not sure of what needs to be done with jeep coils, do a search for jeep coil swaps and read around. All the info is out there, but you will have to do your own homework....steering is a key point for example. Lots of studying, hw, and cross referencing will get you the information you need to run jeep coils. Its not a drop in swap.

Either way, ask questions, & post pics so we can either :icon_confused: or :thefinger: and goodluck :icon_thumby:

as stated before, steering geometry with the TTB is really important....

with the really soft ( as far as RBV's are concerned ) Jeep coils if your steering isn't spot on you will get some really harsh handling characteristics that can be difficult to live with....

for a good DD/trailrig go with the Skyjackers....
