At the center of this fresh and genius gas pressurized shock for your Jeep CJ5 from Rancho is the one of a kind and patented rebound valving system and an improved compression phase on the RS5000X Rancho Shock. This brilliant process developed by the cutting edge minds at Rancho will increase overall handling and performance of your vehicle whether you’re kicking dust on off road or looking great on road, the RS5000X Rancho Shock is what your Jeep CJ5 deserves. The RS5000X shock is a 2-1/4-inch diameter shock. The larger body provides added fluid capacity to operate cooler while increasing control.
