Rancho 9000XL

I was just wondering if anybody was using the Rancho 9000XL all the way around your truck with a level kit in the front with a stock rear. I'm just concerned about the front shocks topping out over large bumps or off roading. Hopefully somebody that is running this setup can give me some input. Thanks.

I dont use the rancho 9000's but here are my opinions on them: they are quite pricey even without the remote control and the bilsteins are almost half the price and they have a levelling kit inside the,.

I'm running RS9000s on my XJ rock buggy and they are a good shock nothing great or wow IMO just a good shock. i got mine for free when a buddy was upgrading his lift. For the ram its really hard to beat the 5100s those are a great shock all the way around and are what I'm planning on running if something else doesn't work out.
