All shocks use oil as the damping medium and nitrogen gas to control frothing. If the shock is monotube then it uses high pressure gas. If it is twin tube then it uses low pressure gas. For your use I would recommend a twin tube layout. Try Rough Trax in Bristol.

Replaced the shocks on my kzj70 with monroe shocks from roughtrax. I use my 70 for light farm work so mainly on the road and light field work.  Found the shocks more than adequate.
