    How long have you had them? I'm not looking for anything super fancy. Just a good on/offroad shock that will last a few years...

    Tuff Country likely doesn't even make those shocks.

    I run em. even if they don't make their own shocks, these seem pretty good to me. I have absolutely nothing to complain about them. They are beefy and fit well.
