Rear looks rather stiff. Are your shocks limiting your rear travel?

Front flex looks great.

I agree, the back looks real stiff compared to the front. I'd guess high 700's to low 800's, possibly a little higher. The front looks good, if you can get the rear to flex better I could see 900's with no problem, but this is all a guess.

If you change to 9012's with appropriate shock towers in the front and get the rear taken care of, I know it'll break 1100. Mine does with revolvers, 4" skyjacker.

Now, I would say 800-900 range. And yes, there are revolver's up front in the pic.

Heres a link for a rough calculation based on tire height and converts to an rti score.

The revolvers are obviously on the front as you can see the left side shackle "opened". Doesn't look too bad, like the others have said, rear looks stiff. Maybe inboarding the springs would help?

Where the does the rear look stiff at. The passenger side rear tire is all the way on the ground. Are you referring to the drivers side rear tire nto being totally stuffed into the fenderwell?? What are the 9012 shocks. Ive heard of them, btu what are they compared to a rancho 9000 or 5000?? Thanks guys.

A 9012 is a model in the rs9000 line. They also have a 5012 in the 5000 line. The 5012/9012's have the most travel in the Rancho line (13" approx)

What makes it look stiff in the rear though. Is it the tire not tucked all the way into the rear fenderwell. I thought it looked really flexy for the springs it has on it.
