I assumed these shocks were just stiff by design and make myself content with them. Not happy, but barely content. Now that I know there is still a little adjustment wiggle room, I might enjoy them. I have the Rancho RS9000XL. Are we talking about the same shocks?

Is there a reason you keep the front and back at the same level? I knew they were supposed to be different, but I thought it was supposed to be softer up front.The suspension guru's here say that the suspension is supposed to be set stiffer front and softer rear. Give that a try and see if it helps. It helped me. I just need to soften mine up even more.

I accounted for the lighter 2.5L, but not the hard top. I never noticed, but the hard top makes quite a difference with the suspension.

Before I forget, welcome to the Vegas thread.

Local junkyards usually are slim with the Jeep parts. The one by Boulder Hwy has about 5 Cherokee's. I saw about that many at the north location, but all of those were picked clean.

The north location has way too many vehicles without usable parts. That is the only one I've seen in many states that doesn't crush vehicles without usable parts. Not sure why they would keep something that is only good for scrap. If it can't make you money with parts, get the money from scrap.

I've searched the reviews threads and can't fin this. I'm looking for any reviews on the viair on board air systems. Specifically the 10007. Anyone know if it's good, bad, or meh?

I've had a viair system on my truck for over three years for air bags(towing), tires, and train horn. And have never had an issue with it. Great system.

You don’t buy it you build it!!

Which one did you get? The 100% duty cycle one? The 10007 is the one that is the 100 duty cycle and only one compressor, the 10008 and up have 2 compressors. The 10006 and under are less than 100 duty cycle.

Don't remember the number but it is 100% duty cycle single compressor 150 psi shut off. But for some reason the last six months or so it turns off at 125. Feel free to come look at it if you want.

Thanks for the welcome. I have the same shocks as you. I really wasn't sure about which should be softer so set them the same. I used them off road first day I got them and set them both to 1. I was impressed with the handling. Then I left them on 1 and drove on road. Combined with the Anti Rock, it was a little sketchy! I'll give your 3, 4 a try and see how it is.

So... Hindsight sucks! I knew better then what I did and well, let's just say that a little bit of fun in my truck last night left me with a hole in my muffler! LOL, no biggie, it's about the size of a quarter. I'll patch it up with some scrap sheet metal and remount it properly this time! Live and learn I suppose. Nice part is the broken muffler also led me to spending some time laying under the truck which enabled me to stumble on another very very simple to fix issue that had I not caught it could've been beyond catastrophic, let's just put it that way! Hmmmm, want a hint??? I'm now motivated to fab up and install the driveshaft loop that I've been procrastinating on!

Tomorrow I gotta do brakes on my moms car and then I'm going to rip into my pops forks. Got them off the harley today. I'll rebuild them tomorrow and hopefully get them back on too.

BTW, anyone ever been bit or scratched by a cat? My dad got nailed my their cat on the top of his hand. He said it happened so fast that he's not sure if it was teeth or claw though. Not gonna go into what he was doing cause it was retarded but he came over around 9ish this morning right. His hand looked just a tiny bit swollen. By 6 this evening you'd have thought his hand was broke it was so friggen swollen! It was too the point that he couldn't even remotely make a fist and just touching his fingers you could see the pain in his face. The main meat/backhand area of his hand was close to twice the thickness it should be.

If he was bit then he could lose his hand if he doesn't go to the hospital. I have been scratched pretty good before but cleaned it really well and everything was fine. Bit by any animal can cause blood poisoning and it will travel from the point of the bite through the body. It sounds infected, use your best judgement. My wife was bitten by a dog on her hand and when she went to the doctor the doc sent her to the hospital where she spent the next 3 days. You could see the infection travel up her arm. At the site of the bite she had staph infection and you can still see that she lost some muscle there. It was pretty serious.

Thanks for the OBA answers. I think I know the kit I'm getting now.

FYI when you install it McFadden-Dale has the best selection of fittings and air line. The kits never come with everything.
