New Shocks

Okay so my Rancho 9000 shocks came in UPS yesterday. It took it out after putting them on and the lowest setting is softer than stock and the highest setting is pretty hard. Here is the great part. I purchased these shocks online at my4by.com for only $80 plus right now Rancho has a rebate deal of $100 on top of that so I got the 4 Rancho 9000 shocks for $245 shipped. That comes out to $61.25 a shock if you are mathematically challenged. Ha ha.

The customer service of my4by is incredible. The rep was super fast about communicating back and forth in emails, usually within the hour. His response to getting the shocks out fast was great. I was supposed to leave for Moab today and I ordered the shocks on Wednesday, which came in Friday. He even went through and gave me the tracking numbers and everything. Great company to work with. Check his site out.

Please note that I have nothing to do with this company and I have never met the owner. I just had some great customer service, which is rare these days, and wanted to pass that on to everyone on the forum. You will love the prices and the service.

I will post more when I beat on the new shocks a bit.

Looked into those and they were almost double what I paid for the Ranchos.

I wonder how the Ranchos would compare to the OME's. The price seems better on the Ranchos.

I just replaced my stock shocks with OME's. I think I paid $90 each. What a huge improvement in ride quality.
