Rancho 9000s. I will never have another Jeep without them. I can make my ride as soft or as hard as I prefer. If you buy a normal shock you get the ride the factory thought was best. If you buy an adjustable shock you can decide what ride is best.

I have had most of the more popular shocks available on one vehicle or another and a few different set ups on the same vehicle and I will have to say like the majority probably will OME seem to be a good highway ride and still keeps things under control off road for me and how I drive but everyones idea of a good ride is usually different . I wanted as soft all around as possible but still keep things under control in the rough stuff at speed .

Gary me too. I have my 9000s on the softest setting around town, half way setting on the highway and the hardest setting when I am in Moab.

Iv been considering getting the bilstein 7100's or the fox 2.0 shocks. I have heard good things about both. But no personal experience. Yet

Got mine at my4by.com for $80 a shock shipped. There was a Rancho rebate at the time though.
