Does that $300-$400 go to shocks or are you paying for the shocks on top of that? You have obviously entered a state of decision paralysis where you've thought about it so hard you can't make a decision. So I'll take the $400 now for being your psychiatrist and then you can buy the shocks that I tell you will fix your problem

But seriously, both are amazing. I have OME Nitro's in my jeep and my uncle has billsteins on his truck. Both ride better than stock shocks.

I'll probably get flamed for this one but, if you still can't decide which one, why not just pick one based upon the look of the shock?

Yes this is just for shocks. I have the rest of the lift picked out for the most part.

I figured. Haha I was just messing with you. Main thing to look at is shock length. Both extended and compressed and see what you need versus what they offer. If you haven't already done that.

I've got Bilsteins now, before I had what looked like Rubicon Express (painted black, with silver paint underneath). Difference was night and day. Ride is much better.
