    I know that the ol' 9012's were the standard for a long time, but i read that there is a longer shock out there now. anyone know what it is and the specs on it?

    Thanks Evan, but i still only see the 9012's as the hot ticket at 13.25" of travel.

    the RS5134 has .25" more travel than the 9012's...

    I might give Rancho a call...

    Zakk,

    Rancho makes an RS5036. They have the following dimensions: Extended: 36" Compressed: 21"
    ==&gt; 15" stroke /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif
    I heard it may be hard to get the 9000 version of it for a couple of months yet.....

    hummmm.... i was running 5000 series in the front, and 9000 in the rear. i just set the rears at 3 and go.

    would it be worth the wait for the 9000's?

    The adjustable feature is definitely a plus.... Call your favorite 4wd shop and ask them when they could get some of those 9000's.... Maybe too long of a wait, tho..... /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    yeah, i think so.

    I was going to put the suspension on this weekend. The hops is to get the springs, etc. under the rig, get the longer brake lines, cut out the floor, remove the shocks and flex the hell outta the pig and figure out what i need to do after that.

    i might have to get the 5000 series and see how they do for me.
