Best replacement shocks?

Looking for advise and others experience with shocks. Keeping this Jeep for my daily driver with most of the off road driving being beach and dunes and occasionally some forest runs. I have my Comanche for the wild off roading. So many options to chose from, just looking to narrow down some tried and true set ups as the replacement stock shocks especially with the new 31x10.5 just don't cut it.

With an assumption that you're running a stock setup with no lift, I can tell you I have been successfully running the Gabriel Pro shocks from Autozone for about 7 months now.

They are cheap and offer great performance for the money. They offer a lifetime warranty too. They work well on pavement just dont ask too much of them off road. (Front part no. 61615. Rear part no. 61616)

I would highly recomend installing the bar pin eliminators on the front and back. They one of the weakest links the Jeep's suspension design. Hope that helps. Good Luck!

Not available anymore but i have edlebrock ias shocks and they are awesome. You can still find them once in a while on ebay.
Unfortunately i will be taking mine off as i go a little higher and look for more droop which they do not offer in stock size. They are the main reason i have held off going higher as i love their ride on my daily driver. I still have concerns if i can get same performance out of other shocks.
