i dont really like rancho(made by monroe), but they are a step up from the skycrappers. i had the fabtech shocks and liked those...also the pro comp es series has an oversized shaft and are really good considering the rep pro comp has...but they have definately stepped up. if u dont plan on lifting try the edelbrock IAS and kyb monomax(resonably priced too). ive also heard pretty good things about the rough country/hecklethorn shocks

If you are going to run it hard then the gas shock is a good bet against fading but if you are running on the street, sometimes in the woods and no jumping then a good quality hydro shock will give a better ride.
Hydraulic Shocks will fade after a while if the trail/course you are running is hard and fast or extremely rough.
I just ordered Coil-Over Shocks with Emulsion, don't know where that will go but time will tell.
