Tenneco Inc.’s Rancho brand has released a larger RS5000X shock series for lifted trucks and sport utility vehicles.
The company says the new shock series helps deliver precisely controlled off-road performance. Cross-Tuned Technology, a new and unique valve design, allows for increased control and consistent ride profile with a larger shock body.
“The Rancho RS5000X series gives vehicles found in North America – and around the world – another great choice for a performance shock,” says Chris Gauss, director, performance brands for Tenneco.
“By introducing a patented valve technology, enlarging the shock body and adding other key features that enhance the original design, enthusiasts will see more consistent performance and extended capabilities in a wide-variety of environments and regions.”
The Rancho RS5000X shock series has a large 2.25-inch diameter reserve tube that delivers greater oil capacity and can enhance overall performance, according to Tenneco. The larger body diameter allows the RS5000X shock to run cooler and more consistent in more extreme conditions and varying vehicle speeds while extending shock durability.
Each new RS5000X shock also includes a solid, 16mm nitro-carb rod to offer strength and durability during off-road driving. The RS5000X shock is gas pressurized to add a mild boost of spring rate to potentially minimize foaming and shock fade.
The series also features a glass-filled fluon banded piston that provides smoother piston travel and greater responsiveness when road conditions vary.
Each RS5000X shock is finished in classic Rancho bright white paint with a full-color Rancho RS5000X decal and each shock includes a protective Rancho red boot.
