Maybe since they have a PW part number they compensated for it, I currently run 35's and have 37's on order so they'll get tested :)

I only do what the majority of the 4 voices in my head tell me to. In most cases, I ignore two of them because one doesn't speak English, and I suspect the other is talking to someone else.

Rusty, where did you order the 7100s from? Also, what length and valving did you get?

I've had the 37's on for a week and the Ranchos are doing great. I like them a lot better than the factory Bilsteins.

Will,

Which Ranchos are you running the RS5000 or the RS9000XL?

The 9000's. Look up a couple of posts and I put the part numbers at the bottom of it.

Are you guys mostly towing and street driving? I trashed my first two sets of shocks in the front just by the amount of flexing done off road. I ended up getting a taller shock mount on top just to get some options of shocks I could use and even then I have limiting straps to keep the axle weight off the shocks at full flex. My options at that point were all higher end reservoir shocks. In order to go without the limiting straps I was going to need to move the air box and fuse box under the hood in order to have even taller shock mounts. If some of you are fitting 37"s at least a few of you are having the same issues.

Need something with heims then. Bushings don't cut it. Bigger 5/8" heims are the best for our trucks not 1/2" heims like foud on bilsteins and cheaper shocks. Kings 5/8" seems to hold up the best. Plus their poly bushing is better too. The higher end shocks I've gotten over the past three years have held up "okay" I've still managed to duck some of them up lol I bypassed the front left bilstein 9100 after a few good jumps and probably bottomed it..... And my king 3.0" left rear did the same thing which I found today.... They bypassed internally by allowing oil and nitro to mix causing the shock to become an emulsion shock which don't work to well when it's not meant to be!!
