    I have a friend with king 3.0 on his 2017 and he loved them.

    I want a shock that is comfortable for daily driving, not noisy, stable at highway speeds etc. and to raise the truck about 2”. I off-road sometimes but not a ton. But I do want upgraded shocks.

    Any experience with these 3 shocks?

    I've got the Sway A Way 3.0's and while they ride and perform great, the rear bypasses are noisy as hell.

    Sway-A-Way has been around since the 60's making a bunch of suspension and accessories for crawlers, pre-runners, buggies, etc. Recently they were acquired by AFE under their 'AFE Control' brand and while they certainly don't have the recognition of King or Fox they certainly aren't slouches either.

    Curiosity question (not being a dick here): since you only off road the truck occasionally why do you think you need an "upgraded" shock? I've seen the OE Fox 3.0 shocks do some amazing things on trucks that are off road all the time.
