    I have them on both my trucks. Seem to work fine. Had them on the K5 for 5 years, on the Dodge for 1 year. Yes there are better shocks out there, but not for the price. The ones on the Dodge were $100 for four shocks and a can of black spray paint.

    Can't give an answer to the ? but I do plan on the Pro Comp 9000's for mine when I do the long shock conversion.

    I've had various procomp shocks on mine over the last 8 years, tried the 9000's have the 3000 on it now, can 't really compare to anything because i've never had anything else on the truck, but they seem to do a pretty good job, can't complain about them, The only comparason i know of first hand was my brothers scout, he had ranchos on it for years, then went to the Procomps and said it was a night and day difference, rode alot nicer with the PCs.

    I run the ProComps front and rear. And I run the long shock conversion and they work great. No complaints at all aboout them.

    I've been running the Pro Comp ES3000 for just over 6 months now and they are awesome, copared to the rancho RS5000's, and for what you pay for the es3000 there is nothing else that comes close. plus the es 3000 have the largest diameter piston of all right now .
