    What do you guys run on your tow rigs? Mine needs new shocks. Looking at just the cheap Monroes, should be able to get them cheaper with my discount at the Advanced here in BVille.

    I run bilstein replacements on everything. Well worth the money.

    Second that, but I used Gas Magnums on my '66 Econoline Van and was quite happy with the way they behaved on the pavement.

    Whatever you do, don't get the ones from Sears. I think the were Monroe shocks actually. We had a lot of problems with those things.

    heavily leaning towards just spending the dough on some Bilsteins.

    It is a Tow rig that OFTEN sees heavy bed loads. A good set of shocks is likely teh way to go.
