I like search shocks the best. They are very nice.... Honestly, its all opinion. I hate Rancho, some like them. I like OME, some don't, I am 50/50 on Bilsteins, some sleep with them. All opinions and all different. I would try some Bilsteins, but then again, they will cost you. If all you do is cruise the highway, just get some cheap ones at Sears.

my wife drives it, but i use it for wheeling. to be honest it sees more on-road than off-road (90%-10%). i try to hit the trails once every month or two.

If it were me, I would just go with some cheaper style shocks. However, if you have the extra cash, the bilsteins would work great. They are good both on and off, and will last a long long time with 90-10 use.

"search shocks" was a joke. You can search and find 100 different answers. This would come up more often than not. (bil's that is).

I replaced my stocks with Skyjacker Hydros. They're decent and only $35 a piece with boots from Performance Products. com. They work fine for daily driving and occasional off road. Haven't tested them with a heavy load though.

I have the Donahoe Remote resivoirs and love them awesome in all terrains especially when all four are off the ground but they are 199$ each but if you want to play you got to pay

yeah

I've had cheap-o Pro-Comp 3000's on my previous two trucks. They run around $35 a piece if Im not mistaken. I now have Bilstien 5100's and couldn't be happier. The offroad ride is great, but they also win hands down on the road. You don't want to skimp on your shocks, you'll regret it time and time again.

You said you were looking for opinions on the best - here is mine:

Donahoe Racing Remote Res

I would be surprised if anyone who has ever owned or ridden in a truck with these installed wouldn't agree. Pricey, but they are one of the best.
