Re: shocks

Out of the 3 you mentioned, the PC 9000s are the only gas charged ones. I would say those are the best choice out of your options.

When you get agressive off road, you will find any of them will heat up and fade, and you will need to step up to the plate and buy some resivoired high dollar shocks.

Re: shocks

I have two Fox 2.0 10" travel with resivoir for $120 each.. Run them on my truck and on my buggy.. Best shock you can buy. They are rebuildable and you can change the valving in them to suit your needs..

Re: shocks

I have a RS9000's up front and 5000's in the rear, and they fade quickly. I like not having a gas charged shock for my solid axle (softer ride) but if you want something to romp through the desert with, look into a good set of reservoirs.

Re: shocks

I have an 85 4wd Toy, so I have a straight axle, too. I am currently running Bilstein 5100's all the way around (duals up front and singles in the rear), and I must admit I LOVE THEM. The ride, while a little bit stiffer than it was with the RS 9000's I was running, is absolutely a dream. It is especially controlled out in the dez when hitting the wash and whoops at high speed (which I do more now that my front driveshaft, and therefore my 4wd capability, is out of service). They were an awsome price and an even better value. I have nothing but nice things to say about them.

Re: shocks

Yeah, I know what a solid axle is. It's always so funny to see younger kids look at my truck, especially little kids that know a little about trucks. I will never forget the day this like 11 year old kid looked under my truck, and said to the guy he was with, "Whoa, dad, look! Leaf springs on the FRONT of the truck!"
It was so funny.

Ok, I don't know why I just told ya'll that.
This is the most current picture of my truck.
