What a piece of crapola. I was considering rancho shocks replacement for my rubicon suspension, but looks like it is either fox or sticking with rubicon shocks. So glad you shared this.FWIW: The Rancho 0" lift shocks actually have less travel than the OEM Sport shocks. Keep in mind, the 0" lift number is based off of Rubicon height. So if you had a stock height Rubicon and put on the no-lift Rancho shocks, it would flex less than a Sport.
The Rancho 2" shocks have 7.05" of travel. OEM Rubicon shock travel is 7.88", but obviously doesn't have the proper droop for a 2" lift. I'm not normally one to recommend shock extensions, but in this case you would get more travel with them, and save some money over purchasing the Rancho shocks.
None of this is factoring in any ride quality improvements the Rancho shocks may or may not give (I've never run them so I can't comment or ride quality).
This doesn't make sense, so with such a short travel how does this work? I mean the shock will limit suspension travel instead of the bump stop am I right? how does it even work when getting a rancho lift? A rancho lift is a downgrade if you get worst suspension travel.
Care to shine more light about this @RanchoShocks
