    F-O-A shocks are usually pretty decently priced

    So you're saying you spend more than a day and a half of wheeling a week...That's 25% wheeling...

    I'd see if Bilstein has the length you need. That's a good shock for the money. If not, then call up DSM and see what they suggest

    I just bought a set of 26 inch skyjacker nitros for like 93$ bucks. My truck is lifted 3" so you'll need longer ones but they're not that much more expensive. For the front i bought a set of KYB's for like 46 bucks, but i have the factory coil springs still so for you idk. I'm goin to install the rear shocks tonite since the front ones are on backorder till next week so i'll keep you posted on how they turn out. I bought all of my stuff from summitracing.com

    I have a full Old Man Emu setup on my truck. I just don't know if they have the shocks for a 6 inch lift.

    I love my OME setup.
