Rancho – a leader in performance off-road suspension systems and shock absorbers – has added new, massive RS9000XL shock absorbers to its product offering. Rancho suspensions and shock absorbers are manufactured and marketed by Tenneco Inc.

“We recognized the clear need for a premium shock with an oversized body,” said the brand’s general manager, Joe Pase. “As the off-road and performance market continues to evolve, we’ll continue to develop and introduce products that answer the changing demands of the vehicle owner.”

Giving enthusiasts another option for any off-road adventure, the new Rancho RS9000XL shock absorber features adjustable damping with either a 2.75- or 2.38-in. diameter reserve tube (varies per application), delivering up to 48-percent greater oil capacity (select applications only). The massive shock body allows the RS9000XL to run cooler and more consistent even under the most demanding conditions, enhancing performance and durability. The new shock is constructed with an 18-mm diameter chromed piston rod (varies per application).

Finished in new Liquid Metallic Silver, Rancho RS9000XL shock absorbers include the new myRIDE tuning system (select applications only), allowing for precision-matched ride control performance in any on- or off-road environment. The new RS9000XL shock absorbers also feature Rancho’s patented nitrogen gas-charged tri-tube mono-flow design. The new RS9000XL shock absorbers work with in-cab controller (p/n RS99701) for remote adjustability.

Ideal for larger wheel and tire combinations, the new Rancho RS9000XL shock absorbers are available for lifted, lowered, stock and custom off-road applications.

The new RS9000XL shock absorbers are backed by the Rancho “Ride Guarantee,” a 90-day free-ride offer that lets enthusiasts try RS9000X and RSX shock absorbers for 90 days. Consumers can return their shocks within 90 days for a full refund of the product’s purchase prices. The new RS9000XL shock absorbers are also backed by Rancho’s limited lifetime warranty.
