3" ready lift/shocks

Ok i'm almost ready to do my lift, I don't want to use the same shocks or the bracket to use the same stock shocks. they need upgrading anyways. I've seen rancho shocks with out the extension bracket. Has anyone done this? and what shock did they use??

YEA, i think they are the only ones I've found, so far. I did see a truck with the same lift with ranchos. I'm going to keep searching

The company Daystar sells a line of Scorpion shocks that are made to go with their 2.5" front leveling kits. These have to be about right for another .5" of lift. I have them on
my 06 KR and they ride really good. I know you are thinking "Scorpion?" There was actually a write-up on them in one of the diesel mags not too long ago. They gave them pretty high marks too.
