Default Skyjacker or Bilstein

Hey guys, been lurking, finally joined.

Got a leaking shock time for some new ones.

I've seen some good things on Bilsteins, they seem to be real popular with Rams, also, there are some good deals on Skyjackers right now. Any advice on what will be comfortable on the road and on some light trails as well as being cost effective.

I know my way around a truck and have a decent set of tools, never done shocks though, something I can handle on my own/with a buddy?

Thanks guys, looking forward to being a member here.

I've never had Skyjackers but I have used Bilsteins on several vehicles in the past and always liked them.

You can do this with a buddy but be careful of the front springs popping out when you unbolt the shock.
