My 08JK Sahara had 57000 when I got fed up with the shocks enough to start shopping.
A buddy gave me his take off Rubis that had a few thousand on them.
While of a marginal improved smooth pavement ride, on gravel & moderate to extreme stutter bumps/washboard conditions, the Rubis proved unsatisfactory.
Over the last 3000 miles I've been obsessing, reading & plaguing various suppliers.
Last Saturday I had Rancho 9000 XT installed on my non-lifted JK.
Been playing with the adjustment levels every few days.
So far the RANCHOS look like solid thumb UP, in my limited experience.
I've put about 20 miles on moderately rough logging roads. Very impressed with totally different feel between the 3/3 setting and the 8/6 setting.
Looking at this experience, perhaps changing to RANCHO 9000 at 25000 miles where I put new Kelly TSRs on, would have been an even better choice.
