rancho rs7000 vs kyb monomax???

im stuck between rancho rs7000 and the monomax. i want the stiffest shock possible because my front end is so heave with a 350, steel bumper, and winch i break my fuel pump on my upper control arm every time when the body crashed down on the frame on woops and jumps. the rears are fine with sky jackers. but the fronts are pro comp and way to soft. even the tripple tube rancho shocks i would get but can't find out much info on the tripple tube. so what would anyone suggest on this?

Thanks

u need stiffer springs. shocks dont support weight. the stock I6 and a 350 are pretty close in weight.
what springs are in the front? what is the spring rate of the springs.

What a shame. He put a carbed 350 in a jeep that came injected. Huge step backwards. Put a set of zj v8 springs in and set your bump stops up correctly, or you will continue to break the fuel pump.

an injected i4 with a blown motor... the 350 was a good choice CARBED all the way, never a problem gas and oil and air none of that sensor bull**** to get all wet and muddy and replace.

Rofl.. you will definitely find yourself in the minority here with that train of thought. I'm guessing you don't have a lot of experience working on fi engines.
