Shock swap

Looking to swap my stock shocks with something a little better for off road. Not really looking for a lift or anything just better then stock. What do y'all recommend? Also any add on to help with handling on dirt/gravel roads. So any and all idea are welcome.

Whats your budget? You can go with something like the bilsteins for 300-350 or the Rancho's for $200

Lol budget depends how I'm sitting after Xmas and new years, I definitely am not a high roller but I don't want junk either. I plan on putting my shocks to work. No big crazy jumps like baja but more like rally would see

With the limited travel of your stock suspension you're not going to be doing much rallying. At this point you're far more limited by the stock leaves and torsion bar setup than shocks. When it comes to high speed off road stuff the more important ability of a shock is that it can handle repeated bumps without overheating the shock fluid and failing.
