Are you trying to improve the ride? Because if you are buying generic white shocks that are probably made in Mexico to replace your white shocks that were made in the USA (my EZ Ride shocks in the rear are made in US, the fronts are Mexico I think) is not a good investment if you are looking for a better ride. I would look into a quality shock like Bilsteins or OME before you throw your money away.

I want something that would be good for offload too. I didn know rancho was actually cheap. Lol, I really don't want to break my bank in shocks though.

I understand, look into something like the Rough Country Performance 2.2 Series for a good middle ground in shocks, good on and off road. The new 2.2s have an enormous piston and are a lot bigger and stronger than they look in the pictures. Plus RC has a good warranty of their stuff, at least on their joints and bushings, I'm not sure what the warranty on their shocks is, but it is a good place to start researching the better quality stuff that is out there. If you still end up buying the RS5000s or any other white shock that comes with company stickers just know that you probably will not be able to tell any difference at all.

When it comes to suspension you get what you pay for. I will only run bilstein shocks on my jeeps. I like the lifetime warranty and that I can send them back to bilstein to have them revalved if I want. And the fact that the 5100 series is specifically valved for your particular application
