Icon5 Shocks for stock fx4 4x4

I want some good shocks for my stock 2003 fx4 4x4. I work at a nissan dealer and have seen the nismo spec. bilsteins break if abused off-road. I want something that will last off-road but not be too rough on road. I know bilstein, rancho and edelbrock make shocks for it. Are there any better or go with onme of those.

Thanks for the help

monroe makes a new "mono-tube" reflex shock for the 4x4's, better and cheaper then bilsteins.

i have had them on the truck for just about a year now and no problems.

I decided to get the Pro comp es9000 shocks. They were like $37 and buy one get one free. They ride good so far.

Well, you get what you pay for...

That's not a good sign if they already "ride good" when they're brand new. What'll happen after they break in?
