Like mentioned above the softer the shock the more the truck feels like it slops around. I understand what you are looking for and these trucks can kick your a$$ on rough roads but it is a 8000lb beast. I personally like more control over comfort. The 5100 is a stiffer ride

I have received a lot of good info on these shocks but still don't know what to go with. Maybe no shocks give significant change in how good the truck rides ?

Your picky lol 5100s if you leave asphalt, 9000xl if you don't. Been said several times bud but other than that, more goes into ride then just shocks. What tires and what pressure do you run?

Nitro terra grapplers at 40psi. I no the cognitto Uca will improve the ride a lot but looking for the best shocks to pair with them.

They are cranked a few turns when I get home ill measure. They have a decent amount more space they could be cranked so not that high
