new shocks

Hello all,
New kid on the block, just bought my second Jeep, an 05 Unlimited Rubicon. My last jeep was a Cherokee. I AM WORKING OUT THE kinks and glitches. Need sugestions on new shocks, it rides a little rough, has death wobble I suppose, has a tendancy to joust me from side to side. It might just be a jeep thing dont know. Most likely the original shocks hace never been replaced. It is a six speed without a lift and has slight over size tires 265/75/16 should have 245/70/16. Speed odometer is 3mph off.
I dont do any crawling and probably wont but hunt and whitewater paddle. I do go off road in mud and deep ruts, steep hills. wanting a decent ride off road and street if thats possible might even lift it a couple in. suggestions much appreciated.
