Buy a shock designed and built by a shock company. No rancho, skyjacker, pro comp, or the like will ever be on my jeep...I don't agree that a higher end shock shouldn't be used for a stock street jeep. Use the highest end unit that is within budget.

Depending on the model, ranchos are either a rebranded Monroe or built by Monroe.

All ranchos are made by tennico which makes Monroe. Pretty Much every painted body shock is make by tennico.

We are a part of Tenneco, and I can assure you that our valving and other aspects of our shocks are different than Monroe. They aren't too many applications from Monroe that have 14" of travel.

There are only a handful of manufacturers that make shocks for a majority of suspension companies or for OE applications for that matter. If you have only experienced 5000's on a YJ and haven't tried the 7000's or 9000's we have our 90 day Performance Guarantee and 90-Day Risk-Free Ride Offer
We challenge you to try our Rancho® RS9000XL™ Shock Absorbers or our Rancho® RS7000MT™ Monotube Shock Absorbers risk-free for 90 days - if these products* don't meet the challenge, call us for your money back.

No worries. One thing about our monotubes, different charge than other montubes, not as "firm" that others don't prefer on other monotubes that are out there.

I understand that Monroe doesn't have their branding on some of the more extreme applications. FYI, I happen to run 9010 and 9012's on my yj.

Thanks for all the Reply's, recommendations, and advice. I ended up going with the KYB Excel-G's. I was able to pick up 4 for $116 and will do the install myself. Am doing a lot of fixes (brake lines, frame repair, brakes, shocks, etc,) to get the jeep back on the road so these fit my budget the best.
