You need to tell us what you have - Sport?

What kind of 'desert offroading' - dry sandy washes, fire roads, slick rock?

Speed - just crawling along, or trying to get from Point A to Point B in a hurry?

Have you offroaded with your current shocks? What don't you like?

Its a 2008 unlimited x.
I offroad in dry sandy areas with rolling hills. My shocks feel to bouncy on the soft sand.
I go for speeding through the desert and up and down the soft sandy hills.

Try the Rancho RS9000XL. Adjustable and work great on sandy washboard. I had them on my Toyota 4x4 truck in the sand in Yuma AZ and they worked great at speed.
Or if you have deep pockets, get a shock with an external reservoir like the FOX shocks. Shocks of that calibre are what you really need for high speed running in the desert sand.

:whistling: Gotta agree with 71K5, the RS9000XL shocks will handle ANYTHING you run into in the desert--and rocks and streams and hills and towing and-----etc !

I've used them for 2-1/2 years in the Nv Desert/Sierra and towing on-road/off-road



Can't beatem

Good luck
