Rancho® Continues to Grow Dodge Suspension System Offering

Rancho Engineers Add New Systems for 2013-2014 Dodge Ram 1500 & 2003-2014 Dodge Ram 2500/3500 Diesel Trucks

Long Beach, Calif., March 11, 2014 – Rancho® has launched a brand-new 4-in. performance suspension system for 2013-2014 Dodge Ram 1500 4WD trucks and a “Level It” system for 2003-2014 Dodge Ram 2500/3500 diesel trucks. These kits add to a full range of Dodge systems available from Rancho, an industry leader in performance suspension systems and shocks.

The new Rancho Dodge Ram 1500 kit (RS66401B) includes Rancho design and construction elements to help ensure maximum durability and performance. The kit includes Rancho’s legendary one-piece subframe, constructed from laser-cut, ¼-in. thick steel and precision matched for superior fit and finish. Rancho engineers also include CNC-machined, durable extended-length steering knuckles and inner and outer tie rod ends.

This newest Rancho Dodge system, which easily accommodates 34.5-in. tires, will not affect the vehicle’s Electronic Stability Control System and allows for re-use of the 17-in. stock wheels and tires.

The Rancho “Level It” 2.5-in. suspension kit for 2003-2012 Dodge Ram 2500/3500 diesel trucks (RS66450R7) easily lifts the front of the vehicle and helps deliver on- and off-road comfort and performance. Easily accomodating up to 35-in. tires, the new kit includes sway bar relocation brackets, a set of front Rancho® RS7000MT™ monotube shocks and variable rate front coil springs.

The sway bar relocation brackets provide additional steering response by dropping the sway bar to the optimal position for full sway and roll control. The variable rate front coil springs feature a precisely tuned progressive rate design, helping to provide an improved on- and off-road driving profile.

Rancho RS7000MT monotube shocks provide resiliency against heat and are ideal for extreme, off-road use and larger wheel and tire packages. RS7000MT shocks deliver a fast, precise response during hauling or when driving on rough roads and trails. These shocks include a 46mm bore and piston, 14mm chrome piston rod and advanced valving precisely tuned to the Dodge 2500/3500 diesel truck. Each RS7000MT features a brushed stainless appearance with a clear coat finish. To complete the Dodge “Level It” kit, Rancho offers rear RS7000MT shocks (P/N RS7269) for additional purchase.

Both systems were designed for a quick, easy install and Rancho engineers include a highly detailed installation guide. All Rancho brackets are manufactured using high-strength, low-alloy steel.

The new Rancho Dodge suspension systems are backed by the Rancho brand’s limited lifetime warranty, see www.GoRancho.com for more information.
