Shocks??????

Guys I have an 08 3/4 ton 4x4 and i'm about to roll 50,000. Want to replace my shocks since I spend so much time in the truck. I really work my truck so wanted to know opinions on the best riding shocks out there that will hold up under the workload.Thanks

I myself am planing Bilstien shocks. Either the yellow and blue or the 5100s.

I have Rancho's on my 04.5, have had them for 5 years now. The truck rides great, but I am going Bilstein's next time around.

For the price I think the bilstein 5100's are the best shocks available for our trucks. Without going to a reservoir or piggy back shock anyway.
