Default Air shock question

hey guys been awhile since I've posted. away with the military right now but getting my plans and parts together to do a complete rebuild of the ol booger when I get back home. Planning on tons with 3 linked front and four linked rear. Trying to decide on air shocks for it. Wanting to know if anyone here runs air shocks and if so what kind. Don't have any experience with them. Looking at the fox 2.0 14 inch travel ones. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys

The fox 2.0 bump stops are what I'm looking at, hopefully someone chimes in since my insecurity is basically the same as your question

One thing I have picked up from Fox is that the air shocks are not intended for highway use. Occasional low speed use seems to be the ticket for those. The local rock competitors use them in Cal Rocks rigs. One thing they do is have on board air that they can use to raise and lower a corner. Pretty cool in high flex situations

I'm still trying to get a good grasp on an oba setup... Will post questions on that in different thread so as to not hijack this thread. But, that being said, that info, on them not being good for on road applications... Any additional information on that other than have heard?
