Where do you enter the coupon code on the website. I registered up and everything. Thanks man. Selling my front tube fenders cause things have changed and probably going to purchase rear bumper with reciever. why dont they have shackle tabs, just wondering? EDIT: on yalls upcoming tire carrier, do you have to have yalls full corners on or will my short corner rokmens work too?

Thenit would be a towing hitch bumper not a recovery bumper. We don't want to have it tow rated.

Upon checkout you'll see the Coupon Entry field.

You'll need to check Rancho for you application. We get the ones from Currie but they may not work for your lift.

I'm using the RS999238 up front and RS999028 in back. I'm at something > 4" of lift and Blaine moved the upper mounts on mine about 2" (and we kept the BPE on the bottom up front) and I think he moved the lower mounts on the Savvy LJ. When we measured it was somewhere about 5-5.5" of uptravel on both ends if I remember correctly. Neither of these were DIRECT BOLT IN for my 4.5 RE LA Lift...

Here are the specs from Rancho:

These are a little to tall for his rig.

I agree... I was just quoting what I have... if Blaine hadn't done these correctly on my rig, they likely would have been too tall for mine...

Here is an spreadsheet that I created, extracted from the Rancho PDF of all of the various models, lengths and mounting types for the RS9000XL series shocks (as of April, 2010-ish, so not sure if others got added since then.)

https://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?...zLVItQ3c&hl=en

Maybe this will help some folks find the proper application. Check the Rancho site for the description of the mounting types for your application.

If I'm understanding the two of correctly, Blaine has raised your front shock mount's 2" up? Your making it very hard to not sell one of the kids to finance some of Blaine's fabrication skills!

Oh, and thanks for the info!

He raised my upper and I think lowered the Savvy LJ's lower mount... and yes, if your within driving distance to Blaine (I'm about 8 hours, and the drive was well worth it, and I'll likely make it again for other projects) and he'll have you over, I don't see a good reason to not have him help...It was the only way mine were going to get done "right"....

I want to get down there and have him look at my Jeep, only problem is the Jeep can't get down there. I need new shocks for a reason, mine are FULLY blown. I can take them off and there would be no difference in the driving. So going down there to have him look at it is basically out of the question. :

Sounds like for me, with 2" of lift, would need the Rancho RS999239 and Rancho RS999241. That's going off of Rancho's website for a stock application with that much lift. Now What's killing me is i don't know if I should go with longer, and suffer a little now, but be ready for a larger lift, or outboarding..?

Anyone care to give a little advice?

Dale, you can weld right? If you need shocks, you might as well outboard now while you are at it for the slight extra cost. IIRC, Blaine said he noticed that it will help that side to side shake when you pull into a parking lot. I never notice it on the last Jeep, but I do now with the Rubi.

Anyone else care to chime in?

I've considered it. But I need to get my Jeep back together within a couple weeks. College starts in a month. I could probably build my own outbaording kit if I'm given measurements. Even get some 3/16th's plate broke into the tower. I just need details and I can probably build a set. I don't really want to spend even more on the Jeep.
