Comments about Rancho RS5000 Shock Absorber:

I have been building up Trucks and SUV's since the early '90's and have used Rancho many times. I like the wide range of products, pricing and availability.
They have great performance characterisitics under normal use and under very stressful conditions. I have gone off-roading all over the U.S. from north to south and east to west. Everything from trail riding to rock crawling at some of the most famous of venues such as, but not limited to: Moab, Las Cruces, Sonora Desert, San Juan Mountains, etc. ,etc. I will keep on using Rancho as long as I am into trucks and SUV's.
