Good luck in your choice.

Since you are in PA, the Rancho 9000XLs need some extra attention because the adjuster (under the knob and plate) will rust because of PA winter road salt, and in a couple years they will no longer be adjustable.
You need to take the plate off and treat the adjuster with a good coat of anti-seize or waterproof grease, then add this to annual maintenance.
Other than this, I love the 9000XLs on my LJ.

|JohnDoe||Yeah I forgot to mention price, I'll be dropping roughly 190 per shock , granted they do have a remote reservoir. So they will last me a bit longer and extra travel length. Those 2 were important things to me when searching, not the price, so that is why i made the choice|

|OmniscientHiers||Rancho's are a bit softer. I prefer Bilstein's quality and design, however the 9000xL are a bit better when compared to the general 5100s and under.|

|Sinister6||I've ran BOTH! The Rancho are like 9 shocks in one and can be dialed in to meet your needs. The Bilsteins replaced the Ranchos and were stiff and firm...very noticable right away...not I can't tell. When I replace the Bilsteins I'd consider both and price would be the deciding factor...|

|JohnDoe||I was in the same boat as you are a while ago, but I decided to save my money and get the blistein 5165-5160(I think that's the right number). I decided against the ranchos because there travel length SUCKS in comparison to the blisteins.|
