    Glad you mentioned what kind of tires you're running and how much PSI as that was going to be my next question.

    From what I'm hearing, I'd be willing to bet 20 bucks that you'd be just as happy with set of Rancho 9000. No, they're nowhere as cool looking and don't have a fancy name and would fade bombing across the desert but I suspect you don't do a whole lot of that. I mention them only because cost appears to be a concern and you'd save a ton of money with them.

    Can vouch. I had the 9000s on the WJ. Awesome shocks and I plan on getting some for the Jk

    I agreed with the rancho 9000. Growing up we had ranchos in our grand Cherokees since 1995. They were always great. The only thing that I wish is that the 9000s were a monutube design. Also, I was looking for a remote reservoir shock to squeeze a little extra collapsed length and extended length.

    But, a monotube design IS what causes a firmer/rougher ride. A more traditional hydro design IS what provides a softer and more comfortable all around ride.

    That makes sense. I do a lot of rock crawling. And I do feel that on rocky terrains I am bouncing too much with the 5100. The 9000 on position 3 or less could solve that.

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.
