I was looking for new shocks for my Ford F-250 to replace the worn out stock ones. I came across this deal. So I purchased the cheapest lift kit on the promotion ($249 - Jeep Wrangler) and ended up getting RS9000XL Series Shocks for my truck. This is a lot nicer shock then what I was planning on getting.
Here is the math by purchasing from Amazon: Lift Kit RS6444 $249.99 Front shocks for my truck RS999267 $96.19/ea Rear Shocks for my truck RS999273 $95.13/ea FSSS +tax Total was $678.94 Less 500 MIR
$178.94 for new shocks minus whatever I can sell the Jeep Lift Kit for.

While going back in time has proven to be difficult, a few months ago these shocks were completely FREE including shipping from AMZN (they were $xx each, and wyb 4, they gave you an instant rebate off purchase... and the shock price was less than the instant rebate... so, free, and FSSS). I "bought" 16 pair... and peddled them all. I've been trying to make a deal out of this rebate too, but can't get them cheap enough. I'll have to look again to see if I can come up with something along the lines of what you did.

Hope this works. I'll jump on front and rear shocks for my F150 Supercrew.

perfect example of one greedy tool ruining the chances of others actually getting them for their trucks and putting them to good use instead of fleecing the system....

How is Rancho on paying out their rebates? Anyone have experience? $500 is a BIG rebate.

Fault me for this deal too...
1 of: Rancho RS6444 Suspension System [Automotive] $249.99 4 of: Rancho RS999276 RS9000XL Series Shock [Automotive] $76.06 Total $554.23, including FSSS Less $500 rebate Less 3% CB on AMZN Visa ($16.62)
So net COGS is $37.61... and then off to CL or eBay for the whole shebang

Just saw this post as I've been out of town. The RS6444 is OOS on Amazon right now. I've got it in my cart waiting for stock. If you're going to act on this deal, you have until 6/30 to complete the purchase.

Tenneco is the parent company, and on their recent Monroe shock rebate, I bought March 10, and had check in hand April 23. Fast enough.
