    I have an 06 2.7 base model and need to replace the shocks. I work construction and sometimes I have to haul material and junk. Any recommendations on something not too pricey?

    You can always get some inexpensive Monroe shocks from somewhere like Advance Auto Parts. I have those on my 1998 Toyota T100. They do fine. I went full upgrade on my Taco since it’s not only a work truck.

    I should add, that I saved 40% per shock by buying them during a holiday sale. However, assuming you need them now, looking around online just now, it appears you can find them cheaper online at somewhere like Amazon.
