I have Rancho RS9000x on my truck and they are great, however they are like 75 per shock which is expensive. My suggestion is either a Bilstein 5010 or skyjacker 7000 or 8000 shocks. the skyjacker i think are the cheapest and I have them on my wrangler, my brother has them on his cherokee, and all the other people i know who have them love them. and they are 33-40 a piece. Dont know much about the Bilstein but i have heard good things

i have just ordered a set of KYB monotubes. i have considred bilsteins for a while, but found post on KYBs saying how strong they are and how much they can raise the vehicle's front up. that did it.
i had very bad experience with adjustables before, they are either too stiff or too soft, and i am not racing, so why bother?

yes, they are $75 a pop, but didn't they teach you in the 1st grade that you always get what you paid for?
in general, monroe and ariel are total junk, they last about a month. like i said - what you pay for.

I know the price is high on the bilstien 5100's but I got mine from another forums for a group buy and I still like the way they ride ..nice and smooth on those highways and still rugged when i wanna do a little off roadin.
