Ran through Gold Mountain & Holcomb Valley Yesterday with a few friends... Seahawkfan also joined us, for a really fun day of wheeling. There was a little bit of Snow, Ice, Mud & Sun... weather & scenery was Awesome.

It worked out great.


Looks like a fun time.. What trails did you run?

Jeremy was limited on time with the Vendor Show happening so we did some of Fin & Things, Hells Revenge, & Poison Spyder. It was the perfect amount of wheeling to get my feet wet in Moab and also spend quality time with the Wife just chillin.

Got the New Rancho RS7MT's installed. What a difference in Ride... they feel Great. I will say my Rancho 9000's are completely Torched. Basically I've been driving on 4 steering stabilizers for that last year or so. I thought the shitty ride was because of the springs settling. Nope, it was the blown shocks. The Jeep feels comfortable again.

Compared to my 9000's, the RS7MT's are longer in length and in the shock body. The front is a non issue... But I lost quite a bit of up travel shaft space in the rear. I think the 1.5" loss from the EVO Rock Stars made things worse. So I added a 3/4 spacer to the rear and I'm going to step my Bump stop up from 3" to 4". This should resolve everything and give the rear some room to move.

The EVO 4" spring was sagging a bit before so the spacer did help. I am about 75% fully loaded in these pics... and sitting about 3/4" higher in the rear. The gaps between the Fenders and tires are now all the same. I now have a 3" spring up front with a 3/4" spacer.... and a 4" spring out back with a 3/4" spacer.

Another plus from all this will be my Droop. Since these shocks are longer than the 9000's I should get some better flex on the trail.

Thanks for the report on the RS7MTs. My rs9000s are also shot, and I'm trying to decide what to replace them with. I don't have much time to think about it though, and no Jeep trips planned, so it's been low priority for me.
