These are sweet!
But the price is crazy. But they are a coilover as well and priced right (for coilovers) its just with the rams, you can easily achieve this via a cheaper solution.
Rancho QuickLifts and even Bilsteins

I was thinking pretty seriously about getting these. Have run Fox shocks on other rigs in the past and in my opinion, regular Bilstein 5100's really don't come close. And this is coming from a guy who really LIKES the Bilsteins, too - 5100's are what is on my Jeep right now. But the Fox can be run a lot harder for a lot longer before fading. Once you leave pavement and get up to speed on washboard the regular 5100's fade pretty quick.

But... I'm not sure how much I'm going to like/love this truck (still waiting for it!!), whether I'm going to want to keep it a long time, or what. I might only keep it a year or two, just not sure yet.

So... I bought Bilsteins for all four corners, for now ($383 to my door from shockwarehouse.com). Will run them for a year or two before I decide which direction to go for serious suspension mods.

If I knew I was going to keep the truck for sure, and I knew for sure I wasn't going to go with a bigger lift later, I'd be all over the Fox shocks though - they kick azz!

I've been thinking about doing all 4 corners on mine with the Fox (these coils up front obviously) If I'm not mistaken these will work when I go to lift the truck at a later time correct? I want to do a 4" but want really good shocks to go with it.

Are you referring to Fox coilovers in the front and Fox rear?
If so, the front will work no problem. The rears, you will have to swap out to longer ones when you lift.
My suggestion is to do the rears when you lift. This way you can do it all at once.

Any questions, hit me up via email FastNugly@bullysperformance.com

I was searching around on google and came across this thread.
What i want to know is when cranked up to provide 2" of lift do these shocks limit down travel like the bilsteins do? I'd rather not spend 800 bucks on shocks that will allow excessive droop and risk separating an upper ball joint lol
Any insight appreciated.

Droop will not change on these coilovers regardless of where you set the ride height. The overall length of these shocks are only about .65" longer than stock (if I remember correctly...I have the actual measurements in my garage) so your upper ball joints will be fine.
