Fox shocks worth it?

Just got Rancho 9000 and I'm debating if I should have spent the xtra money on Fox shocks 2.0 Performance series with reservoir. I have JKU and don't off road yet and plan only on really light off roading but it's costly to install twice (cause u weren't happy with original choice) so I wanted to see if I made a mistake with Rancho 9000. Is the DD ride much better with Fox? I heard a lot of good things with Rancho and for the price with rebate I jumped on it. Planning to get 2.5 lift by Teraflex.

9000s are great shocks. Don't worry about buyers remorse just yet. Use them, and when /if you wear them out, think about Fox shocks. I have had both, and I currently am using the Fox shocks as part of the Mopar stage III lift. If I had to choose between the two, I would choose the Fox shocks. If I wanted the best shocks for the money, I would choose the 9000s.

If you google Rancho 5000X review, you'll find multiple recent direct comparisons with Fox 2.0's and all prefer the Rancho's... That's the entry level Rancho preferred over the Fox shocks. You have great shocks in the 9000's... The Rancho's will have a better ride.
