    Rancho X shocks?!?! Anyone using these?

    Has anyone ran these rancho x shocks? What do you recommend? 5000, 7000, 9000?

    I run 9000 for about six month now and love them. If you go with this option make sure your adjustment knobs facing forward(inside the shock mount) i broke one of mine at the last run.

    Get the 5000X, it has different valving and a gas charge too.
    If you like a firmer ride the RS7000MT.
    If you want to adjust your ride feel, RS9000XL.



    Oh rebate too!

    Will the 5000xwork with a Teraflex leveling kit? 2 inch front 1 inch rear.

    Yep! I would use the part numbers we use in our 2" SPORT system
    RS55326
    RS55330
    One thing I would suggest is a rear brake line relocate bracket.
    They can be found for around $20 just good insurance.

    I'm looking at a 2.5 liftkit, spring lift, and I was thinking about TF, RE, RC, for the springs and rancho shocks. I want a firmer ride then stock. Which springs do you recommend with the rancho 5000?

    TF tend to ride firmer is a censuses.
    Ours and EVO run softer.
    At this height I would look to
    RS55329 for the front
    and keep 330 for the rear.

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.
