    @RanchoShocks I installed the 2 inch kit with 9000 series shocks on my JLUR and it has netted me 3 inches of lift. Any idea if it will settle any? By the way the ride is really good. I have paired your kit with metalcloak trackbars and front upper control arms. I get quite a bit of flex with this setup and the kit does a great job flexing out. It also rides well on the road. I have about 6.7 degrees of caster with the upper control arms set at 19 7/8 inches. The steering is very good with none of the wandering or wobble. I am running with 35 inch tires on 17 inch rims.20190428_090909.jpg

    I ordered the 9000xl for the adjustability factor.

    @RanchoShocks first page had a good quoest that was yet to be answered. any need for a longer drive shafts with this kit? and i see the track bar is going to be needed to adjust the caster adjustment? last question is do you offer HD springs for carrying heavy gear? i have a rtt with the rhino rack and the weight in combind with the front and rear bumpers is well into the 300 lbs extra gear all the time. id like to get rid of the sag i have in the rear due to that.

    No not at this height on a new driveshaft, since this is pretty "true to height"
    WE do offer LONGER travel shocks for taller lifts that DO require a new driveshaft.
    A lot upgrade their track bar, because ours (and others) are just MUCH beefier than stock and help with road feel/manners
    A lot of folks are running our geometry correction brackets to help with caster though :)
    These springs can handle some weight honestly for gear and the like. But we don't make a "HD" version.
    That 300 lbs isn't that bad honestly.
    We tow with ours.
