Looking to replace my shocks all around, was wondering if my jeep with out up country suspension can install Monroe reflex shocks which says they are for up country suspension? Also what would you recomend for replacement shocks? I do haul a lot of camping gear during summer always laoded down and haul a smaller boat around also? It says the sensa-trac is for non up country suspension but also heard they are a softer shock not sure if would be recommended if always have back end loaded down. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I would just recommend a good gas charged shock.

Yeah I am driving a 99 jeep grand Cherokee Laredo without the up country suspension, so found some nice Monroe reflex shocks for good price but they are for same year but says for up country suspension, so what kind of change would that make on my jeep if any? Or would recomend just a different shock like sensa Trac which also found good deal but not sure if they would be good of always being loaded down a bit? Thanks for any information.

If they specify for the other type of suspension, I would recommend a different choice. Get one designed for your vehicle. I have to be honest, I can't really recall any difference between the two suspensions as far as shocks, but something may be different.

My old 87 Cherokee is still going, but starting to have rust issues under the vehicle. Darn thing still runs perfect.
