i've decided on my lift, (Rusty's 3") what type of shocks should i get? I can get hydro's from rusty's but i've heard some bad things about them, what do you guys think? i don't need anything crazy, but i want a nice ride on and off road. let me know what you guys think.

For your performance needs:
ok I guess I'm strange cause I found the DT3ks a good bit too soft. I broke two of them in half, replaced those with DT8ks blew them out and just went with Bilsteins 5150s all around. MUCH nicer and more controlled. could still go for a little beefier shock but they definatly get the job done.
i really like the Old man emu's that i have on there now...

it was worth the $86/shock for me rather than paying $40 for DT 8ks and to have to keep replacing them. the 5150s are still CHEAP compared to real serious shocks like 7100 series bilsteins and swayaways I was also looking at
