Not much really, but I have heard the 5000's are like riding 9000's at a setting of "5". I run mine on "3" for a better street ride (in my opinion). I put them at a "1" when offroad.

You have to remember, the shocks built for a heavy, full size, 1970's Pickup are the same as on a Jeep....just different lengths. Most aftermarket shocks are going to ride too stiff for a lightweight jeep, especially if you don't run the extra weight of a hard top.
