I have the Rancho 2" sport lift and the 9000XL shocks. I crawl slightly underneath the Jeep to adjust. I bought this adjustment tool, and it is awesome: https://www.ebay.com/itm/265183521892

I am very happy with the lift and shocks so far. I also have Rancho's front and rear adjustable track bars and Geo correction brackets.

Good to hear, thanks for the tip on purchasing the adjustment tool…Seems like a simple tool like that would be included with new shocks…🤔

Well I can offer a review - it's not on the JL unfortunately but it will speak to quality and performance.

I run the RS9000's on my Tahoe along with a 2/1 level. I installed them in April of 2019 so i'm over the two year mark now. My overall experience has been great. I did have one shock spring a leak about a month after install, which was alarming. But Rancho overnighted me a replacement...and it was a rear so very easy swap-out, I actually had the new one in place just under 24 hours from the time I noticed the leak. Pretty impressive. On the Tahoe, the rears are very easy to adjust, however the fronts have to be done blindly...you can reach the dials but you can't see them so you have to count the clicks.

If I remember correctly my current setting is 6F/5R...but the Tahoe is over 1000lbs heavier than the Wrangler so I doubt those numbers will help anyone here. On the Tahoe, the best range is like 3-7...less than three gives a super soft but bouncy ride and more than 7 gets way harsh when unloaded.
