    Lol. I know that, because I thought I’d been shipped the wrong shocks, once.

    Cool

    RS5000X is our "introductory" shock, but don't let the inexpensive cost fool you, they are a great shock. The valving is really cool.
    RS7000MT is a monotube shock, this is a high pressure nitrogen gas charged shock, so a firmer shock. Some do not like a shock that is firm.
    RS90000XL is our adjustable shock, via a knob at the base. This is for ride feel. A 1 setting is very soft, a 8-9 is firm.
    The RS5000X and RS9000XL are available for the JL now in our various SPORT systems, with the RS9000XL being released as a "stand alone" very soon.
    The RS7000MT is in prototype/testing right now.
    Yes we use a universal box for our shocks.
    I think I hit everything on this and now here to answer questions.
    If I don't know the answer, I know a few engineers.

    I don't want to hijack the thread, and I didn't even have a JL, I have a JKU, but I think the question will fit anyway ; the 9000 at 1 is soft as what ? And at 9 firm as what ? As firm as the 7000 ? The same kit with those different shock will behave differently ?
    Thanks to take time to answer my questions guys, I really appreciate it ( all of you )

    1 is REALLY soft.
    4-5 is OE like.
    7-8 is like a monotube, but a different firm. Think if you are towing, you firm up the rear to help with "porpoising"
    Yes same kit with different shocks will have a different ride feel.
    For example on my JKU, I ran RS9000XL on a 3, switched to the firmer 7000MT, and then back to RS9000XL's. Now I run my 9000's at a 7 or so. I like that "firmness" now.

    1 is like you have no shocks whatsoever, 9 is like you welded a piece of rebar across your spring coils. 😎

    OEM lean

    I wonder why the factory added the lean and why Rancho didn't do away with it, In a cross wind on the highway this just adds to the bricks handling

    I think Jeep installed taller coils on the passenger side to help mitigate the lean JK's all have on that side. Unfortunately, I think they just over did it. Rancho isn't the only company following in the footsteps of Jeep - most aftermarket companies are doing the same.

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.
