    Great video. Iíve been pleased with the older Rancho 5000x. Iím also glad to see Jeep changed out the wicked upper shock mount design, that was on the JK!

    LOL!! The new upper mounts are definitely an improvement over the JK.

    Hi Eddie,
    There is some thought that running without the plastic shock boots is the way to go. Your thoughts?

    Just got my Rancho kit delivered. Thanks for posting all the in depth install info. I feel better prepared to tackle the install myself.

    I used to run shock boots on aftermarket shocks until I saw how much water and mud builds up in there and STAYS in there. The purpose of the boot is to keep dust out. In my opinion, they're better off removed.

    I agree with this.
