Anyone know the pros and cons between the following shocks? Mostly drive on pavement and sometimes some dirt road on 2wd. Planning only to change the rear shocks.

Rancho RS5000
Rancho RS9000XL
OME Nitrocharger Sport

The Rancho RS9000 is basically an adjustable RS5000.

Believe they are compression only adjustment so rebound is fixed.

Currently have a pair of the 9000's waiting on an install.

I didn’t think Rancho made shocks for the 19 Ranger.

Yep. I saw nothing for the 2019/2020 Ranger on their website.
True, but... The 24" Rancho RS9000XL with S1 bushings will only need 2 sets of 16x12x35mm sleeves to be a really good mechanical fit for all but the FX4's (Maybe FX2's as well) and being adjustable, can be set as desired. A chunk of 16x12x300mm aluminum tubing is cheap.

Or in my case, I chose a different length.........

off topic- i like those grease shackles on the link. here in ohio the rust really gets in there and they start squeaking after a couple years
