    Any suggestions on rear shock upgrades for a better ride, specifically the rear? I have a Tacoma and a Wrangler that each have had various OME and Bilsteins and have been happy. Any suggestions on which shocks will give me a better on-road ride? The truck is a 2024 OR trim. I live in Rhode Island so we're known for our awful road conditions and crooked politicians...who don't fix our roads.

    Nothing makes a truck ride better than some weight in the bed. That's due to the factory leaf pack construction. A better leaf pack will help more than the shock will, but a good shock will help control the ride back there with your current pack. My 2000 rides so much better with a camper shell on it due to the 250 or so pounds it adds.

    Money better spent on good set of tires that won’t pop.

    My bad, thought it was his Tacoma. I Usually look for the what gen header, carry on and ignore the guy with his ancient leafs. Disappointing to hear the new ones don't ride better.
