Monroe Max Air shocks

Im going to be replacing my shocks sometime soon probably a month or two because my cheep gabriels are junk. I was looking at shocks and i saw Monroe Max air shocks http://www.monroe.com/products/Max-Air/shock-Absorbers i was wonder if anybody has any experience with these before or heard anything about them. They seem to kinda work like an air bag to help with heavy loads. I would probably get the Airlift 25804 so i would have easy control from in cab. The only problem i have is that they dont make them for the front because the weight on the front doesnt usually change so i would have to get a different shock for the front.

I was also looking at the Ranch RS9000XL but they are a little more pricey than the monroes.

I've sold quite a few sets of those Monroes at work and never got any back or heard of any problems.

Found this review over on The Ranger Station

You simply air them up before hauling them air then back down afterwords. I have had wood stacked in the bed up to the middle of the back glass with the shocks at 90psi and could still see the top of the tires (not possible before this shocks). They claim to be able to be filled to 150psi but I haven't done that yet. Ride unloaded is improved and ride loaded is vastly improved the suspension can actually flex out some vs being totally bottomed out like before. Would gladly recommend this tho others.
