Your stock FLTRX (Custom) shocks are 12" , the stock Ultra and EG shocks are 13" ,. So you can buy any used set of HD Take Offs from any of the other Touring Models except the Street Glide and you will be raising your bike 1" or order any aftermarket 13" shock.
But if you order a aftermarket 13" shock it will be about 1" higher on the jiffy stand but it may only be 1/2 - 0" taller when you are sitting on it since most aftermarket shocks that use spring oil/gas require a rider sag be set to get the best performance out of them usually its 1/3 of the shock travel or about 1" with our shocks. The stock HD air shocks in my experience could never be adjusted for sag , they were always topped out at my weight of 210 lbs even with 0psi in them. So if you want it to be 1" taller with you on the bike you may want to look at 13.5 or a little longer shocks.
Howard at Motor Cycle metal will custom make a set of Ohlins to your specs and is a wealth of info . he has a shock that he calls 3-3 Ohlin that are a little linger that 13 and are supposed to work great.
