Remote-Controlled Adjustable Shock Absorbers
"They're ideal for towing and hauling and for the daily driver with a work truck," says Jason DeNardo, product manager for Rancho, which is a division of Tenneco, Inc. The controller comes with four presets: Highway, Sport, Tow/Haul and Off-Road.
"When you're towing, you want a more controlled ride. The firmer ride option reduces pitching and swaying," DeNardo says. "When unloaded and not towing, you want a softer ride."
The Rancho MyRide system includes a quiet-running air compressor, solenoid switching manifold, air lines, and necessary fittings. With easy-to-follow directions it can be installed by consumers with average mechanical skills in about two hours. No programming required. The water-resistant wireless controller operates on AAA batteries, has a power-save mode, and can be mounted anywhere in the vehicle. It reaches up to 50 ft. to control front and rear shocks.
In addition to more towing and hauling control, off-road enthusiasts appreciate MyRide's convenience. The Rancho product earned "Best New Product" award in the Off-Road/4-Wheel Drive category at the 2007 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show.
The MyRide Tuning System and Wireless Controller costs $270 (shocks are additional) and is available at Rancho's website and through its dealer network.
