Fox are good shocks, but I can't help but to feel I am paying for the name.

I have been told that they are valved for lighter trucks. I have not looked into this but it seemed to be a legit speculation.

Icon and king seem to be the top rated shocks for our trucks though. They are on the pricey side though

I'll be going mx6 for the adjustability when I get around to replacing the stiff white tube shocks that I have now.

awesome thanks.....



ct performance gave me a great price on shocks so now i can really add fox

so its mx6, bilstien and fox all are under 500..

i still havent figured out what i want to go with lol i called 7 different off road shops. with eastern in virgina being the most helpful as they always are.. all the shops seemed to compare everything to the fox but recommended bilsteins, mx6's saying the fox's are great just to much.. but ive found them for under 500 lol
