Never heard of them. I dont even see a brand, or are they Dixon Bros. own? IMO if you want shocks like that, go with Fox or King or Rancho9000 shocks. If the dampening is correctly set, you shouldnt get any lift

If it sound to good to be true 90% of the time it is. I go with Monroe shocks. They are good quality shocks.

Dixon Bros is top notch stuff. I'm almost positive this kit doesn't give you any kind of lift for the following reasons:
1) It's cheap in comparison of other Dixon Bros stuff
2) It states it's for a stock suspension
3) It doesn't mention a lift

Dixon Brothers focuses more on the desert racing & sand dunes crowd.

Those shocks are radflos that are revalved specifically for the ranger by dixon brothers. they are internally limited, work at stock height and give a great ride from what I have heard. camburg offers a similar kit that uses fox shoxs and limit straps for around 800. the dixons are internally limited and 100% bolt on which is great.
