The remote res. are unnecessary unless you run desert races. Save the money for limit straps or something useful in rock crawling.;)
i would have to say that getting more travel out of a shorter shock body is pretty usefull. And at only 40 bucks more each... I just couldnt say no! :D

That is EXACTLY why everyone sees them on rockcrawlers! I was waiting for that. I understand "throwing them in" but I don't understand "looking for the best remote res.".

Doesn't Bilstein have a new one as well, besides the 7100s? I think they're a remote version of the 5100s - apparently fairly cheap too.

Check out the Doesch (sp?) Tech resevoir style shocks. I saw some coilover style ones at Autofab that seemed to be fairly cheaper than other brands. Be aware also that most resevoir style shocks have a longer body by about 2" than most regular "Rancho" style shocks--that means you may have to rework your shock loops to compensate so you don't end up loosing shock travel when you upgrade.
