Rancho 2" Sport Suspension with 9000XL

All,

I am about to pull the trigger on the Rancho 2" Sport Suspension with 9000XL shocks. I know there are some threads about the Rancho 9000xl shocks, but most of them are older.

For those of you who have them installed, what do you think about them? Would you buy them again? Is it worth to have adjustable shocks?

I am planning to do a lot of photo shooting in Death Valley, not hardcore rock crawling, but most of the trains are wash board trails. Has anyone used the Ranchos in that environment? If yes, how did they perform?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

I have that lift and I'm very happy with it. I've been out to Ocotillo Wells and it rode very nice. I also only have them adjusted to the middle position but you can put it on soft if you want.

Do you have any pics of your rig?

I bought this lift earlier in the week. I'm just waiting for amazon to ship it. Can't wait to get the thing installed.

I know Rancho has a rebate offer currently. Not sure about the kits.

X2. They are adjustable from off road stiff to pavement smooth. These shocks are now on my trucks and will alway be on my jeeps.
I'm a Red Jeep fan also.
