It was mentioned in another thread the the Rancho's are huge in size, and with that are they ones designed for a TJ, or are they a similar length shock designed for a bigger vehicle?

I'm almost dead set on getting a set of the 2"-4" Rancho 9000's for my Jeep. Just want to clear some things up. I also think I have decided at this point in time I shouldn't worry about outboarding my shocks unless it can be done without any other related problems, and I can get a different shock length to put on my Jeep. I would probably try making my own shock towers though..

I believe Wade said they were originally designed for a Ford F150. Wade did the research. I also need some 1-2" shorter for smaller lifted Jeeps.

The Tubes and shafts are quite a bit larger than the shocks designed for the Jeep.

The rears on mine and I think Blaine installed on the Savvy LJ were the RS999028 which had applications listed for full size Chevy/GMC Yukon/Tahoe and Chevy Avalanche as well as some full sized Dodge and Hummer I think...

I don't think that I got a pic of the 2.75 Body shock next to the smaller Monotubes that I pulled off, but it's substantial...

Gerald, I have an XLS I created from the Rancho PDF's if you want to look through the lengths and mounting for all of the RS9000's series shocks...

That would be fantastic. Since yours and my shocks are a little longer that the standard 4" lift shock. I want to try some just a little bit shorter on OCTJ's Jeep.

So Gerlad?

Are you dealing with Rancho stuff now, or have a certain way you get the Rancho shocks? I want to get a set for my Jeep, but I'm not sure how or what I should do. I think just normal shocks for now, but since yours is using shocks for a full size truck, that leaves me a little bit confused..

Hey Larry,

JP was funny as hell! I'm tying to work a deal for him on a front RockJock. You're welcome to take the LJ out for a test anytime.

Anymore trips planned. We are thinking about the Dusy the end on the month.

No, ya'll don't listen when we say they are just prototypes pics or spy shots and then start snivelling because they aren't in production which then drives Gerald crazy. He then has me rush stuff into production after which it sits in the warehouse waiting for all the snivellers to buy it.

I'm only putting up pics of stuff that is on the production line.

Gerald, can you get me some pics of how you guys did the anti-rock please? You make it hard to give you my money.

::SELLING HALF OF MY JEEP::

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f33/?uid=152304

Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

IndyORV- Dick and fart jokes, titties, throttle, flops, beer, tater balls, and good times.
