    i installed some Rancho Loaded quickLIFT RS999915 on my 19 double cab short bed trd sport this past weekend. now why did i go with Ranchos? well i got these super cheap and they come ready to install. they have a adjustable valve and lifetime warranty..replace them anytime, return them anytime depending where you buy them from (these are available most major parts stores). these were perfect to get a quick cheap lift to fit the tires i wanted...and NOT use spacers.

    before i got these i searched around and couldn't really find anyone running these, at least not a 3rd gen so i thought i would post this review for others. now i can only compare to stock which is what most people will be caring for anyways if their searching for these.

    install was straight forward they literally came ready to slap on, took about 45 minutes for each side to install, using standard hand tools and a jack (i did it at my works parking lot, so no excuses!) they actually surprisingly ride amazing, better than stock to me, and i have not messed with the valving. soon after i installed, i installed the 4runner sema trd pro wheels, and 285-70-17 BFG A/T k02 tires, i was worried about rubbing, but with the sema wheels offset, these tires fit perfect with this lift, i get absolutely zero rubbing, ive pulled out of driveways with a decent incline and in full lock reverse and nothing. no trimming or anything besides removing the bottom of my bumpers valance (it might have rubbed on that) overall i gained about 2.5" of lift.

    took it to get an alignment the next day and the alignment shop only charged me 20 bucks for an alignment check, i thought they misheard me as i told them when i dropped it off that i lifted the truck and got new wheel/tires...but nope they said the alignment was perfect, and they saw the notes about the lift and tires...now this is a reputable alignment shop around town so if they were after money, they would have charged the amount for an alignment and i would have paid and not known, being it was perfect they only charged for the check.

    here few photos, hope this helps others who found these struts and were curious. ive only had them on since Sunday, drove about 3hrs hwy today and drove super smooth. i will update as time goes by, like i mentioned i only got these as temps until i get the icon/king setup, but they ride so well, im not in a rush.

    I have these on my 1st gen and have been on for a year now with no problems. I just swapped out the rs5000 in the rear for the rs9000 and the truck rides so smooth! Any one in the market for some Rs5000's? I should have gotten the RS9000 for the rear to begin with.

    Op any major issues? I’m thinking about this , so no adjustment of the strut? What were blistens for? Did you add a block or a leaf? Was the install for lifting or leveling out Thank for any input. I’m new to the taco. Been just playing with my fj40 leafs all around

    i used these for a lift to fit the tires. was not trying to level but when i finished it looked leveled so i didn't finish the rear. but now i do see the front higher than the rear so next weekend i have off i will install the bilsteins and the AAL you see pictured. so far the truck is still riding super smooth, and i am actually very happy with the ride. im in no hurry to get a new setup (icon or king) which my original intent was to get these on for now, and in a few months get a new setup, but i like the ride so much i might wait for some time before i do that now.

    Thanks for the reply. Are the fronts selectable? What number did you select if they are ?

    I actually left them at the first setting, not sure if it’s soft or hard, doesn’t say anywhere which direction is what, I’ll have to try it out and report back but so far these struts have been rising very very, very impressed.

    Number 1 is softest ride setting and 9 is hardest ride setting, I have Rancho Quicklift 2.5" rs9000's on my truck at about 80K and I am now at 179K and love em, rear same RS9000's I have em all set to 7 since I prefer a firm ride and no porpoising with towing travel trailer, its just right when I am pulling my 17 ft travel trailer. As for rear lift I have super-springs on the highest heaviest setting, the truck is leveled out fine, with added capability of taking the trailers 450 lb tongue weight without much sag. Overall huge stability gain for the truck as well, cornering is much better. I personally consider the RS9000's a huge upgrade over the oem yellow bilsteins. Rancho shocks have been used and liked by Jeep crowd for many yrs.

    How did you get the coilovers in? Did you drop the sway bar and LCA? Or is there enough space by disconnecting the sway bar to fit the coilover?
