if you are going to get the RS5000's get them ASAP! i got mine shipped total for $158.00 and they came in about three days. make sure you call them up and get the 50 dollar rebate form that you are eiligible for once you purchase a set of these ranchos. that brings your grand total ultimately down to under 110 bucks for a complete set of 4 rancho shocks. i believe the offer lasts until aug 22, so you only have a few more days to make the purchase if you want that deal. let us know if you make it!

I read the thing on the website, and it said that it expires August 31st? Why did you say the 22nd? Anyways I was wondering, I read that they are not gas charged, so how do they work?

Only reason the 22nd is in my head is cuz thats when class starts here at Purdue

Gotta post-pone my shackles and shocks weekend cuz of it too

i guess i was off by a week, if you read 31st, thats even better. no gas charge on the ranchos, i think these shocks have some kind of fluid in them or something like that. i use them on mine, they arent as road friendly as some other shocks, but they are great in light off roading situations. they do make your truck feel more like a truck, some people dig that, some dont.

i think you are referring to gas shocks. i think gas shocks use nitrogen but i could be wrong.

Well, all of Page 31 was off topic, so I'll put it back on Trac (see what I did there?). My latest look.

Hugh, have you considered placing a 3rd PIAA light between the 2 on your guard? Just to give it a "rally" look? I always thought that would look good, but mine are too close together to attempt.

Not a third light, but I do have two more PIAA 510s. I considered putting them there but it just looked so crowded and junked up. I like simple.

I wouldn't really want to block the Ford symbol either. I know, I'm weird.

Looks good with the lights. I've always liked the look of a full brush guard too.
