Which shocks??

Trying to pick my new shocks. Currently I have some crappy Superlift shocks, so I definately want to upgrade...

For my JKU w/ 4" lift.

Have it narrowed down to these 3:

Bilstein 5100's

Old Man Emu's

Rancho 9000's.

If anyone has experience with any of these or recommendations they would be greatly appreciated.

Can't go wrong with any of those. I believe the ranchos are adjustable.

If they are all about equal, I was actually leaning towards the Rancho shocks...for what I am sure some will think it a dumb reason, but my JKU is Stone White w/ a lot of black accents...side & corner armor etc...and the other color I have is red, little accents in the Poison Spyder stuff & ARB diff covers so w/ the Rancho's being red they would look best too....

I know dumb, but hey I like my Jeep to look good too as well as functional!
