Shocks

I ran the Rough Country 2.2's for two years, them went with Rancho 9000xls. The difference was night and day going with the Ranchos.(AAA+++). Weather running fire roads or the rocks they work. Just dial down for wheeling, and crank up for the highway. The Ranchos are more $, but you get what you pay for. At times Ranchos have deals.

They are adjustable. You can go from rocking back and forth at stops soft, or stiff as a RC. I like mine soft for on road and stiff offroad to keep from bottoming out coming off of obstacles. Heck, you can even get an on-board adjustment system to make changes on the fly for another $250.

turn a dial on the shock. 1 - 9 with 1 being softest.

You'll notice. The system is called "MyRIDE".
