    We are Seriously considering a 3" Rancho kit but I have a question about the 9000xl shock adjuster. Looking at the "how to" manual to determine the correct way to adjust the shock I came across this

    Not sure if I'm reading this correct but don't the arrows point in the same direction to make the shock softer and stiffer?

    The adjusters stop at 1/9. You can only go so far one way until it's maxed out then you would have to go back the other way.

    It's a PDF from here
    http://www.gorancho.com/images/downl..._SellSheet.pdf

    Just did a search on Google for "how to adjust the rancho 9000 shocks" and it was the first one that came up.

    I do get the fact that turn one way makes it stiffer and the other makes it softer. Just thought it was a little interesting.

    Just put a 9000xl leveling kit on my work .. Ugh cough 4Runner.. And was going to play with the settings.

    Thanks for the response!

    Question on RS66102B kit

    I would like to run 37's with factory fenders, start with this kit then upgrade latter. However it's says up to 37's and when I go on the 4wheel parts web site it says max 35 inch tires.
    Now In regards to the progressive rate springs , will these provide the soft ride that I am hearing about from other rancho spring users?

    What I am trying to accomplish I guess for lack of a better term is a overland style build with 37's , I plan on aftermarket bumpers , roof rack etc so will be adding weight . If that info helps?

    We suggest 35's with stock flares. If you go to flat/cut flares 37's will fit.
    Yes you will get a soft ride.
    Adding the other stuff is factored in. We run bumpers front/rear and a winch up front as well.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
