Question What Shocks Do You Run?

As I wait for the delivery guy to bless me with "new" 18/59 coils, I can't help pondering what I should replace my stock factory blacks with...

Sooo many choices! Luckily, I'm in no hurry and have plenty of time to ponder options. So, I leave it to you. For those of you running under a 2" lift, what shocks do you guys run?

There are many great shocks out there but the main problem for me was shocks set for off roading are stiff do you really want stiff on a 500 mile road trip. Adjustable shocks are the way to go IMO

What they said.

On the way to Hershey PA this weekend, which is almost 2 hours away from where I live, I was experiencing a harsh ride on the interstate. I stopped at a rest are and cranked the shocks down to the soft side a little bit and it was nice and plush.

The Rancho 9000xl's are a great buy; they're only about $90 a shock, have 9 adjustable settings, and if you destroy one, it's cheap to replace.
