Rancho five position ajustable shocks

I just ordered some Rancho five position shocks. I was wondering if anyone else has experiance with them. Did I make a good decision considering that I do both extreem off roading and highway driving. Also I will be hauling trailers form time to time.

Based on your "versatile" needs, you probably made the right decision. If you just did some light off-roading now and then, highway, and towing, I would say you could get by fine without them, that's my situation and I just use a good quality shock with no problems. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

I just can't be bothered changing settings all the time, LOL, since I really wouldn't see the benefit for my conditions.

I just thought calibration abilities are always nice. Now I can harden the rear shocks for a load while independantly considering the front suspention.

rancho 9000's --they have helped my winter ride considerably. SOA and 35's get's the COG up high enough that without a sway bar, my jeep leans really bad in the turns WITH A FULL HARDTOP (scrambler). the 9000's let me dial it stiffer with the top and keep it softer without my top. Although different than towing, I still think you made the right choice. When you install them remember to keep the knobs "IN" or towards the axle. it makes them a little harder to adjust but a lot safer from damage on the trail.

You made the right choice . For the money you've spent you'll reap the rewards of the best shock available
