Default Shocks on a 2001 sport

Hello. I am new to this site. I have done some research on the site as well as other sites. This is my first truck btw. I have a 2001 1500 quad cab with the sport package. My knowledge is that dodge put a 2inch lift on the sport model. So do i need to find special shocks, buy shocks for a lifted application, or is a regular shock good? I do some mudding from time to time. I want something that can take a beating when i go off-road, but not break the bank. Any and all help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

No 2" lift on it from the factory . I have the same truck but with the Off-Road package and sat down in the front till I put the 2" leveling kit on the front . Shocks are hard to come by for the Off-Road packaged trucks . If you have the regular Sport truck just look into a set of replacement shocks .

okay..yeah i really dont know if i have a leveling kit or not ( i bought it used) but it doesnt have any downward pitch towards the front of the truck, and the bumper is just a hair lower than my friends dodge ram and he has a 3 inch skyjacker lift with 33s...so i might have to investigate this further...but if i can get a simple shock what would be a good application thanks for all the help
