    First lay off the CAPS, second fill out your profile so we can ALL help you, and third ... rancho 9000's are adjustable from very soft to very firm and doetcsh tech (sp?) makes a good "washboard" shock. Hope that helps alittle bit [​IMG]

    Bilstein, Sway Away, Kings. If you're going desert running, spend bucks on the shocks. Stay away from the twin tube and goe with the monotube shocks that I listed above. Shock fade is what'll kill ya and that comes from heat buildup which comes from a lot of shock movement in a short time.
