When i hit the trail i drop them down to 2 (soft) which gives you a smooth ride off-road. less expensive than fox shocks and are American made compared to bilstein.

Will these fit?) , Fox 2.0s, and Rancho rs9000xl. Any input would be appreciated.
im in the EXACT same situation. and considering all of thos shocks too. leaning toward foxs cause they are rebuildable.
