Default Need tougher rear shocks 2010 4X2

2010 2.3 stick reg cab XL WITH reverse 2wd w 2in lift maxtrac coils and bilstein 5100 shocks up front. 30 incher tires general grabbers at2 tires. Rear is stock height with yellow bilstein 4600 shocks. I can tell the front has more control is stiffer than the rear specially when going in a bridge uphill at 75 mph there is this dip and i can feel the rear is "looser" than the front.

I am planning on buying a showroom new 2018 raptor 700 and i will be hauling it in the bed along with fuel jug and some gear and ramps. I dont baby my ranger when going through rough streets. I want something better in the rear shocks stiffer with more control than the yellow 4600s. Are the billy 5100 much more longer than the 4600s? If so how much longer is the body? 5100 rear shocks stiffer than the yellow 4600? I am concened that if i get the 5100 in the rear with no rear lift and going through dirt roads and the rappy700 in the back can they bottom out and ruin the rear shock hangers or i would have to do something dumb off a huge drop to bottom them out with the raptor in the back?

Or any other better shock for the back to match the front stiffness/control.

Thanks buddies.
