Is anyone else having the problem of tire sensors going off at say 29-30 psi??
Would 34 down to 32 psi make a difference?
Already looking into the Rancho 7000's.....

Sure, my low air sensor goes off around 29 psi. I run 28 psi with my 35's...big deal, I don't mind orange lights when I know why they are illuminated. Pro cal, and several other tuners can take care of this issue.

Why the 7000's and not the 9000's? Any input?

I have not seen a Rancho kit It's just a bracket that mounts up over the tie rod. Any kit should do.

KJEEPER10, I am interested to learn your take on this question. You have had both 9000's & 7000's. It seems that the 7000's are very nice shocks. How do you feel about not having the option to adjust the 7000's like you could with the 9000's that you had? Are the 7000's everything you need for city/hiway/fire & forest roads/crawling/heavy loads?

Going to drop mine about 5 pounds a tire and see if that helps the ride a little. Not that I mind it now.... but help I used to drive home from the trail at 15 pounds.... before TPMS...

Yes... You will find with the 9000's, once you find a setting you like, it won't be changed much. Maybe a little firmer off road, The 7000 is "self adjusting " meaning the valving adjust per road condition. Nice smooth on road ride but firm up to keep your bumpstops from slamming the axle off road. Awesome shocks IMO. They are a firmer ride but not harsh like my Bilstiens.

Lol, my trail grapplers were at 55 when ups delived them and i had the lift and tires installed. I was second guessing the lift and 35s as the truck rode like crap. Then I dropped air pressure to 30 and got it aligned and it rides better than stock. Cant believe how much tire pressure affects jeeps.

I've been experimenting with the ride control on the RS9000XL's. Ran them everywhere from 2 front and 3 rear to 9/9 and everywhere inbetween.
So far on road I like 3/3 on road 5/6 when pulling a trailer on road and 8/9 off-road.
