    For how expensive the damn things are. Just go all out and do coil overs. Seriously.

    Rebuilding them is expensive. Purchasing them is expensive. Breaking them is expensive.
    Do they ride nice? I think so but I wouldn’t buy them again.

    FWIW I went with the rancho 9000s over the 2.0s because of the cost. I really wanted the Evo spec king's when doing my build. Would the 2.0s ride better?.... Maybe but for the price they cost and to re build I can buy new ranchos every year and not catch up to the price of the king's for quite some time. Just my 2 cents and I think the 9000s pair well with the plush rides I have.

I don’t bomb across the desert with them, but I do run a lot of gravel roads and dirt roads for miles and they made a huge difference for me.

    Did you rattle can them or take them to a shop and have them professionally clear coated? Rattle can clear is garbage but an actual automotive finish clear holds up great.

    Rattle canned them. You are right, if I would have had them professionally done, they would have lasted longer. But the rear shocks are so exposed to spray and debris, it would have stripped them anyway after a period of time.

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.
