The guy at my local offroad store told me BDS was the best bang for the buck. They're pretty cheap, practically the same as skyjackers. He pulled one out and compared it to a skyjacker, and showed me how its much better built. A better seal, better welds etc. Plus I've heard good things about their ride quality etc.
just my $.02
Drive it like you rented it, not like you stole it. Cus if you stole it, you'd be driving 5 mph below the speed limit and using your turn signals.
Rancho 9000s are the best shocks I have had. One valving size does not fit all. What one person says is a good ride the next person may not agree with. When you buy a standard shock you get what you get. With Rancho 9000s you can make them as soft or hard as you would like.

I feel their are better shocks than the 9000XLs but for as many changes as my Jeep goes through in a year and the different driving conditions its really nice to be able to adjust the shocks for the best ride at any given time in seconds. Mine ranges as many do from Hard top ,full doors to soft top, half doors , safari top no doors from turnpikes to wash board roads and I can make it ride pretty darn good at most any time with the Rancho 9000XLs . I had the OMEs and on my Ram I have the 5100s and I like them also
