Best shocks?

Looking to buy some new shocks just trying to see what i should go with? I don't do much towing at all but occasionally i will hook up to my buddies trailer or fill my bed with wood. I don't play with it mostly just drive it every day to work and back. I just want a good quality shock at a fair price. Thanks guys. Oh yeah my truck just has a 2 inch leveling spring in the front.

I have a set of monroes The yellow ones from Big O tires that have been on the truck since right after new, I have 2-1/2" leveling leafs along with 1-1/2" shackles up front with dual shocks and 1-ton blocks and a single 1" add a leaf in the rear with singles and 1 ton shocks, I love them tho! They have a lifetime warrenty in case anything does happen to them and they ride just as nice as most of the higher name brand shocks. Not all tho, but for the price I love the ride. Ive towed, I live in rough road area and I wheel it all the time and I have no complaints whatsoever My pops also has the bilstien 5100 zinc plated shocks on his 1 ton dodge, but they ride alot stiffer! They are nice shocks as well tho. I like mine more but his are a little tougher of a shock if your into fire road running but I would say that the monroes are alot better of a shock for a DD rig.

I have run Bils and Ranchos and both are way to stiff for highway use. The best shock I have found is the Monroe Reflex. Great ride without the bling and you can buy all four for the price of one Bil and lifetime warranty. Many have used the Reflex and will agree with me.
