Default Off road package sus question

Has anyone had good luck finding a good replacment for the shocks on the Rams with the Off Road package? I went to the dealer today and they told me those are back ordered with no date of when they could be in.

Also I toy a travel trailer so I was thinking of getting something a little stiffer. I don't do a lot of crazy off roading either.

Truthfully; I think majority of OffRoad Packages either came with Bilsteins or Rancho's. You won't go wrong either way.

less than 90.00 you can get a set of Airlift 1000 bags, or for about 300.00 you can get the total load control system. air them up when you tow, deflate them to minimum pressure when you don't have the trailer on or a big bed load.

Has anyone found the answer? I am very suer that my '03 has the original shocks on it with just over 109k miles. I am new too the forum, but aren;t they special too the Off Road package due too them being stiffer, wider and made the truck slightly taller??
Wouldn't mind finding a shock and strut that gave my truck a small suspension lift while still giving the support in the back for towing a travel trailer.

I have an 04 Off road 1500 and from what I've seen, these packages have Torino bars up front and lockers in the rear. I have been trying to find the exact spec but unable to locate anything that expands past that. So I am not sure which shocks would work but I would def like to get some clarification on this. Good luck
