NTB Shocks, Skyjacker or other brand??

talked to a skyjacker rep, looks like they recommend the m9593 and 9579. I use the truck to haul debris , a trailer and plow What does everyone else run or recommend??my mount to mount on the rear was about 26.75 and they recommended a 26.630 expanded length does that make sense??? also what distributor?? Im trying to save a little coin!

i have the bilsteins as mentioned above. I like the ride. i also have them on my jeep JK.
I also had a set of procomps on my f150, but the fronts were adjustable coilovers. they were sweet. the rear shocks were just fine also. no complaints on any aftermarkets that i have owned
