I built a prerunner. Ford Ranger with 22"/28" front/rear travel. I had King 2.5" shocks on it. Those shocks worked great on that 4000 lb truck. To me the 2.5's are overkill on the Maverick. So, IMHO, most people would be perfectly happy with the 2.0's. But, I like to tune shocks, so they're easier than taking the 2.0's apart every time I want to try something new. Also, I figured the XRS would be easier to sell when I'm ready, and that I could get a good portion of the extra that I paid for it back.
