    Rancho 2" Sport Suspension Lift Kit with RS5000X Shocks Experience

    I am considering the above loft kit for my 19 JLUR. Not looking to do any rock climbing but I plan on doing On and off road. Probably 80/20.

    I live in MI so local off road but I am also heading to Ouray, CO for two weeks next summer to ride all the trails and passes there. (Did it on my BMW GSA last year and loved the roads)

    I know that a few here have used this kit but I also believe some have upgraded from here.

    So on short should I consider this or is it to low end? It is certainly cheap coming in under $700.00?

    Great full for advice.

    I have this with the 9000 shocks and got about 3Ē out of it. I love the ride and it flexís good. I do have a Rubicon though

    Thanks.
    Not sure if I dare to go with the adjustable shocks here in MI. I am concerned the road salt will seize up the adjustments

    To you guys that have installed this, did you also install the geometry relocation brackets?

    You sound like youíre in a similar boat to me: letís have fun, nothing too crazy, and avoid the maintenance that comes with hardcore pro parts. Also, Iím from upstate NY I know the salt. Run the 5000 shocks for a year & upgrade if you really need to. If they rust out theyíre $50 a piece.
