Rancho's RS5000 is not valved for the Wrangler weight and it will ride extremely stiffly, about like the ProComp ES-3000 which has a notoriously stiff ride. What is your upper budget amount? Will that budget amount change if you install them yourself?

I've been running the 5000s for about 5 years and have no complaints. It may be stiffer but I'm used to it.

My spending limit is probably about 80 each so I think I might go with the bilstein 5100. Is there a better option?
