New shocks

I got a 6" pro comp lift with the el cheapo shocks. I'm ready to upgrade. I either want the bilsteins or the icons. I love the look of the reservoir shocks, even tho I'll never actually "use" them. The bilstein 5100s are around 250 for four I believe. Anyone got any experience with them, or the icons, or any recommendations?

Bilsteins made a HUGE improvement in my truck. I love them. Had always heard about them for sports cars but never for big trucks until I researched here. Very pleased!

They are both nice shocks. I bought the icon because they are made in America. Bilsteins are made in Germany. Support our troops!!!!
