Getting ready for Rancho rebate, which 5000x's

Looking forward to spring rebate! Rancho earned my business for life when they sent me warranty replacement 9000s for my truck FOC! After 250,000 miles, that is a standing behind your products!

So decided on 5000x for my JKUR. Just not sure which ones to get, I have synergy 1" springs front and back. I have heavy bumpers, winch, tire carrier etc. running 285/70/17s and not going bigger. They have 0" or 3" for front and 0" or 2.5" for rear. What should I get? A little short of a little long?

Thanks for the help!

Leaning towards 0", since I think it is better to over extend then completely bottom out. But I could be totally wrong. I think I would need at least a 1.5" bump stop for the 3"/2.5" length. I would get more droop but then I would need longer links or risk flipping the sway bar

Then I guess my question is will the stock length 5000x work for ~1.5" of lift?

I'd suggest the stock length shocks... If you go longer you will need to add bump stops to protect the shocks from bottoming out.

Most of the 1.5 leveling kits stay with stock length shocks for this reason. They work great and unless you are going places where you know you need extra droop, you are good to go.

Thanks for the response! Not doing much crazy stuff with jeep, but with the synergy progressive I can droop with the best of them. But I do think 3" front is too much. So stock length it is!

Thanks again.
