I have an '12 JKU Sport with BB Lift, 3" front, 2.5" back and I need shocks.
This is a DD 6 days a week and offroader 1 day a week.
I have Copper SST 35" 315/75/16 rubber that fit fine.
I do not have disconnect yet, but that's next.

My question is, I need shocks, I want to spend 50-80 per, let me know what you have and what you think of them.

Thanks,

BMacD

Bam !!!! Rancho 9000XL adjustable.

i get pm's all the time. People love them

I like the fact that they "Provides 9 different levels of shock performance" I mean come on, it's like a golf bag full of shocks.

Thanks kjeeper10

Seriously.... It's like having 9 shocks in one.
Takes 2 minutes to adjust them or you can buy a fancy controller thing.
I usually keep them soft unless traveling a good distance. I will stiffen them up some.

I love them...... A lot :D

Question, I see that that either make shocks for 2" or 4" lift, I'm 3" front, should I buy the 4" lift size?

Had 6 position Ranchos on my 1988 Toyota 4Runner and just recently put the 9 position ones on my JKU. It does not get better than this when you have a DD but want to stiffen them up for weekend off roading.

How do you adjust them? Is it by an air compressor?

Why are the Rancho's better than the Bil Stiens? Just the adjustment?
Better is subjective. Apples and oranges.
Rancho's are adjustable. Bilsteins are not.

I did not care for the ride with the Bills.

A knob adjust them. Or you can get the controller that runs off air.

Just put my rancho 9k's on this past weekend and love'em. Think there well worth getting.

Kjeeper is one of the main supporters of them here and made me a believer. Not to mention the shock gives you options and i do like options.

Ordered from Amazon, $87.65 per shipped 2 day air, with buy 3-1 free from Ramcho, awesome deal.

What the hell is a mod kitty? :confused:
A fund for future mods.

From Merriam-Webster's secondary definition of kitty (after CAT; esp KITTEN): a sum of money or collection of goods often made up of small contributions : pool

You thought I was ragging on cats, didn't you.
