Well, according to the tech at Monroe/Rancho they are the same shocks. The only differance is that the RSX is geared towards the 4X4 crowd and has a flex cover to keep out dirt and water. They don't have a Rancho RSX for coil over Rangers, so he suggested I use the Monroe Reflex. It's not really that stiff, just more firm than what I have been used to. Remember, I've been riding on 6 year old OEM shocks, so anything will feel stiffer. Given time, they will loosen up a bit. The ride isn't jarring, and definatley feels better.
Monroe has a good tech support department, and they can probably answer any questions about finding the right shock for you. The only downfall is they don't have a toll free number. It's (734) 384-7809
