Any one of them will work no matter what lift you have or even if stock. They just have that extra name that means nothing other then BDS or Teraflex usually handles the warranty if they sell them. Just have to make sure as with any shock, you order the right size for the size lift you have.

I have BDS Fox 2.0 because that is what my off road shop carried. But have a Teraflex leaving kit lift on OEM 19/60 coils.
Alright i gotcha. highly considering the Fox 2.0s for a 4-6 inch lift. figure with all that weight and the possibility of adding an inch or 2 of lift in the future its prob safer to go with the 4-6 inch kit than the 2-4 inch one.

Many of my off road friends that do competition events use the Fox and highly recommended them so they swayed me to them. I really like mine but people love their Blisten and OME too so I would say they all are good shocks and whoever owns each will say they are great. If I had to narrow it to three, it would be your list.

Would like to know what everyone thinks the best shocks would be. not to worried about the "on the road" ride as long as its not ridiculously bad. been looking at OMEs, FOXs, and the Bilsteins.

Socc3rakd25 have a 4" lift and my current shocks are pro comp if that helps

HK_Runner I'd think the Fox with remote res or Kings would be fantastic.
