Just installed Rancho 9000's on my 2012 JKU Sport S and wanted to know how tall of a lift I can install and still use these shocks. 2.5"? 3.5"?

Thanks in advance.

All depends on what shock you got, they make 9000's for no lift, 2-4 etc.

I just ordered the rancho 7000 mt's from quadratec make sure to take a look at them. I like the idea of the 9000's but couldn't wrap my head around the thought of laying down in the mud adjusting them lol. Kjeeper had an excellent review on the 7000's, He made me a believer. Basically a Bilstein with a touch of refinement. Sounds like the business to me! Cant wait to get them! Oh and not to hijack but rancho, torque specs for the shocks??

Just to confirm...if I install a TF 2.5" lift, I need to swap out ALL of my NEARLY NEW Rancho 9000 shocks? Switching the current front shocks from RS999326's to RS999329's and swap out the rear shocks from RS999328's to RS999330's)?

If so, somebody's gonna get a great deal on greatly used Rancho's for a stock lifted JK! (Arrgh! Piss poor planning on my part!)

Thanks in advance.

Yep. :redface: The shocks you have now will not have enough travel with the 2.5" system.
