    Correct, they are gas charged and oil too.
    I like to call them a "monotube light" but different.
    I know that sounds confusing, since this is a twin tube design and a monotube is well, one tube.
    If you are headed out there, hit us up.

    Overlander JK thanks again for trying them out.
    For once the fronts (where I was) were the easy ones!! Ha!

    PS I told everyone NOT to take pics of me working under a rig, I don't want to set a precedent.

    Haha everyone was taking pics when they saw you. I was scared maybe you didn't know what you were doing.

    Shocks road pretty well actually. It was hard to tell on the trail since I was at 8 pounds for over a week but on the ride home they felt great too.

    Thanks for the service Matt and Rancho!!

    Very cool. I rode around for a few days in this and I really liked them. I got a set for my 4 door, but somehow we (or the shop) misplaced a front shock. SO I will order one up and try them out this summer. I will have run the 5000X, 7000MT and the 9000XL all within a year. Wow.

    expand into Canada?

    Hey Rancho, you should consider expanding into Canadian market. I would suggest you pay me to drive from Ontario Canada to Moab to try out your shocks! Just saying, it is an option you might want to consider.

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.
