The main advantage over gas charged shock absorbers over traditional shock absorbers is the reduced vibration of the vehicle.

When you have gas charged shock absorbers on your vehicle your vehicle will experience tire motion control better so your vehicle will see reduced vibration.

Excessive vibration wears out tires faster and wears out the vehicle faster as well so by adding gas charged shock absorbers to your vehicle your truck or vehicle will have longer tire life as well as you'll extend the life of your vehicle.

Your gas mileage will also likely improve as a result of the reduced vehicle vibration and you'll have a much smoother ride as well.
