Default Bilstein v Fox
I ran bilstein 5100s on my Cherokee and my dad's F250, his 2001 F250 is lifted 6.5 inches the ride is still like a stage coach. They seem like decent enough shocks and have been good to me so far but I have heard good things about the Fox 2.0s which are only about 30-40 dollars more. Is it worth the upgrade or just stick with the widely popular Bilsteins?

I have heard it's not a huge upgrade just for the shocks. If we're talking fox 2.0 coilovers then yes they are better than 5100s. In your dad's case I would say no it's not worth it, just my opinion

Fox shocks don't impress me. Over rated imo.
