    Ordered online and shocks showed up when promised.
    Fronts were easy to install but needed a torch to get the back ones out.
    Overall not a bad job.

              Can't get much easier to install. Only complaint that I have is the red protective boot they give you is a little generic. Truck rides great and you keep that cool Rancho look.

                I had the yellow shocks on the truck for 1 yr and they were ok the first week, but not as good as these right out of the box. rancho is by far a shock to have, they cut down the bounce you get from the crack sealant on the road and more, they are very good off road as well. my truck rides better than the factory shocks that were on it 2 yrs ago.
