Whats Everyone running?

Looking to finally replace my shocks after 180K. My question is whats everyone else running that is "NON LOWERED"... My truck is 4x4 with 35" MT'S and 3" front leveling kit. Just wanting to get a different range and opinions from what others are running. I'll most likely end up with the BILSTEIN 5100's, dont plan on throwing the money down on Fox Shocks like in the fast on my previous Rig (2009 JKU 8" Lift on 37" Mud Grapplers)

The bilstein's made a huge difference.They seemed to be the most popular choice I found when I was researching what shocks to get. I'm also on 35's we removed the leveling spacers and adjusted the shocks for leveling..

What year is your truck? Have you had any issues with the 3" leveling kit?

I have a set of front spacers and extended shocks, brand new, that I'm not going to use after all. I'll get pictures this weekend and post them on here for sale.

I think they are these....

I agree. Just took them out of the box. 1 sticker is bent. On phone now and can't figure out how to attach pics.
