Run the RS5000X, easy on the wallet and grat both off and on trail
RS55168 (front)
RS55118 (rear)

These will work perfect with the 2" system.

We have you covered from the RS5000X, RS7000MT or the adjustable RS9000XL.

Tell us a bit more of your driving style/use of the rig and we can go from there.

Shocking Question

My Jeep is a 2013 JK with the Teraflex 1351002 2.5" Lift Kit and Rancho RS5000X Gas Shocks part numbers RS55329 RS5533 running 35" BFG KM2s at 33 psi. installed last April. They like speed bumps here. One at the apartment I hit at least 4 times per day, work 4 times per day, 4 at the entrance to the beach, and in the mall parking lots. In addition many of the roads here are paved over sand and have settled unevenly. You get bounced around like in a roller coaster.

All these speed bumps require me to come to almost a complete stop and approach them on an angle as if I were rock crawling. If they are hit with any type of momentum, even under 5 mph, it is a jarring impact. Yet I see some cars and other SUVs drive over them barely slowing down. Off road, it handles well and the ride is acceptable. Rarely any highway driving.

The question is: would
the adjustable RS9000XL shocks help loosen up the ride? Any other ideas? (yea I know I am asking a shock salesman if I should buy shocks )

@Dr Obbins

Try lowering your tire pressure to 30 PSI first.

I agree with @AOR , tire pressure is key too.
Also the control arm correction bracket will help too. This could be a "cheaper" solution then the 9000's.
Sometimes a solid axle is just.... solid.

I currently have a 2 in. lift. It might be a 1.5"+ spring height with a .5" spacer
I currently have rough country shocks, and they speak for their name "rough"!

I mostly commute and go through backwoods on plane dirt roads quite fast.
I'm looking for shocks that will be responsive off-road but provide a much easier, non-harsh on-road ride.

Based on my driving style, which series shocks do you suggest? I.E. Twin tube, Triple Tube, Mono, Adjustable, etc.

And being as anal as I am when it comes to buying aftermarket parts, please be thorough when explaining the pros and cons of each shock serie

Ok the go fast and the desire to have a "soft" ride points me to the RS9000XL.
The RS7000MT is a high nitrogen charged shock that is great at speed, but can be firm on other terrains, like you will feel the expansion joints.

The RS5000X is also a great option, an almost firm/soft ride. I know that sounds odd but it is. The way the valve shim stack inside the shock is applied it does a great job on fire roads. And this shock is very well valved to the TJ platform. I was honestly "scared" for this shock and Jeep, as many didn't like the old school 5000 valving on the TJ platform. Then I had a cance to ride in a TJ in Moab when we launched this shock a couple of years ago and I am impressed.
Hope this helps, ask away if you have more questions.

I have a 2.5" AEV DS lift with the Bilstein shocks. It rides incredibly stiff. I do like a stiff ride, but if I hit speedbumps or even small imperfections in the road (i.e. patched pavement) it jars my fillings loose.. I was told to drive it for a while as it is a relatively new lift/shocks/tires, but I simply cannot take it anymore. I have been looking at the RS9000's for a while, but do not want to throw another $400 at it for little improvement. I took AEV's advise by adding a HD rear bumper, Tire carrier, full sized spare, and little to no improvement. I also replaced the rear sway bars with Teraflex extended units and removed the bracket in front to add JKS quick discos. Will the shocks make everything a little bit softer on the road? Off road, the Bilsteins are still awfully stiff.

2012 JKUS - 2.5" Lift w/ 285/75/r17

Thanks for any help you can provide.

A lot of folks with this system "upgrade" to the 9000's with this setup and are very happy.
Remember if you aren't happy save your old shocks, you have 90 days to try our shocks out.

RS999329
RS999330
Is what we use with our 3" system, so will work well for you.

Check with your favorite retailer on pricing. If you buy online save all packaging as you will need the UPC as poof of purchase when filling out the rebate form.

Thanks Matt

Thanks Matt.. I will give them a shot. I contact a few retailers to see who can offer me the best deal.

@Rancho I'm torn between the 5k's and 7k's. So you're saying if I try one, I can return within 90 days and try the other?!

I almost want to try the 7k's and return if they are too firm, the swap to the 5k's. I'm just wondering if the 5k's will be too soft. But others have told me the 5k's are definitely firmer than stock.

2016 JKU with 1.5" Rock Krawler springs, steel mid-width bumper with synthetic 10k winch, BFG KO2s in 34x10.5x17. I do run a roof rack occasionally for road trips which gets loaded up pretty good, but no other extra weight at this time. Do plan to add full skids sooner than later, and eventually going to 35's with rear bumper & carrier.

Tips and suggestions please?

Oh, also, what is the bolt size for the lower shock mounts on the JK? Mind have been grinded down a little!

I almost want to try the 7k's and return if they are too firm they are a firm/responsive shock that's for sure, the swap to the 5k's. I'm just wondering if the 5k's will be too soft. But others have told me the 5k's are definitely firmer than stock. The 90 day is on the 5X, just so you know. The 5000X is truly a firm/soft shock. I ran all 3 in one year. I went back to the 9000's and went from a soft setting (3) to a firmer setting more like the 5000X/7000MT.

2016 JKU with 1.5" Rock Krawler springs, steel mid-width bumper with synthetic 10k winch, BFG KO2s in 34x10.5x17. I do run a roof rack occasionally for road trips which gets loaded up pretty good, but no other extra weight at this time. Do plan to add full skids sooner than later, and eventually going to 35's with rear bumper & carrier.

Tips and suggestions please? Honestly, RS9000XL, they just work.
