is it 4x4? if so I doubt there is any difference in the shocks with a tow package and without, doubt there is any difference it the 2x either, but I don't know anything about them. From what I have read on here, the stock springs are junk anyway and will begin to give in time, so if your going to invest in good shocks, may as well look for some good springs too.

But wait for some other more experienced voices to chime in before you drop a lot of money, I've done nothing to my '08 (without the tow package) and I tow a mid size pop-up (3500 lbs) with it occasionally and it has done great.

Bilstiensx2 for sure. Decide if you are going stay at standard height or a lift as the shocks are longer for a lift.

I tow a Camp Trailer with mine and on some of the roads out west in New South Wales, Australia the back of the KK will go from one end of the suspension travel to the other with standard shocks. Then I fitted the Bilstiens to the rear and they control the ride very well. I got the shocks from Jeepin By Al for about $80.00usd each.

Happy wheelin.
