Rancho RS 9000 XL. The Bilsteins were too soft for me.
Over my 20+ years of wheeling, I ran Rancho, KYB, Bilstein, Monroe, and Pro Comp. My consideration was based on my Toy pickups being both week-end warriors and daily drivers. I found that Ranchos failed and leaked sooner than they should, but had nice features like adjustable stiffness knob. Too stiff on the highway was not desirable, so I tried to find a compromise for highway and trail. Since 95% of my wheeling was slow rockcrawling stiffness on the trails was not a big deal, it was the extension and compression lengths. Optimum articulation was most desired. KYBs tended to get stiffer after awhile, Bilsteins seemed to go softer, Monroe had minimum options, so ended up running mostly Rancho and I tried every one of their models, ending up with 9000s with the adjusting knob somewhere in the middle. Now there are way more options for shocks.Gnarls.
Sorry for the late response, guys. I forgot my password. I would like to thank everyone for the feedback. I went ahead and had Bilstein Shocks installed on my crawler.
