Have 5100 for 2-3 inch lift installed but have upgraded to rubicon express 5.5 lift with 2 inch leaf spring blocks. Now shock length resting is 20.5 giving me only 1 inch to max extended length. Should I just go to the shock rated for 5-6 inch lift?

Yes, you will need to upgrade that shock to the longer 5" to 6" lift height. Thank you for the question.

2001 Jeep cherokee XJ. 2WD 4.0L auto. OME Heavy duty coil springs, # 930's with JKS ACOS adjustable spacers. Lift is 1.5 to 1.75 from coils & 1.5 from spacers. If the front is lifted to 3.5 inchs, what shock length range will work best. 1 to 3 or 4 to 5. Bilstein 5100's are what I'm interested in. Will this shock work with a Bar pin upgrade, JKS B-Pin eliminator. Thank you for the Help/Advise.

Thanks for the question. The best option for you with the 5100 is the BIL24-188197. I would run it a little shorter. You don't want to use your shock as a bump stop.
