Rear shock sizing

This weekend one of my rear shocks blew out. I have a 2004 Ram 1500 quad 4wd hemi w/20" tires. I believe it was lifted by the previous owner and going with a stock shock may not last. Ground to top of tire is 32", ground to front fender lip is 38", ground to rear fender lip is 41" and ground to top of rear bumper is 34".
Any thoughts or opinions? This is primarily used as an occasional tow/hauling vehicle.

Thanks in advance,

Just looking at the pictures, I'd say the truck has a front level kit. That would mean the shocks in the back are stock length. That said, the only way you will know for sure is to pull one off and measure it fully collapsed and extended.
