the bigger problem when you buy shocks is making sure the compressed and extended lengths are appropriate for you - which doesn't necessarily correlate with advertised "lift height". and making sure you have enough bumpstop extension to prevent those shocks from bottoming out and causing damage.
Welp, I went through a bunch of posts about shocks, lifts, and bumpstops. My brain hurts but I have learned a lot.
I'm not done researching but I'm a little closer to getting my new shocks. I may get one of these three for the front...
OME N66 (13.2 - 22.4)
Bilstein 24-186810 (13 - 21.8)
BDS 55979 (13.9 - 22.9)
OME seem to have a nice range and I wouldn't need bump stop extensions.
I'm not sure about the rear yet....I wanna check the axle movement first.
Plus, I'm thinking about a 1" body lift and 1" MML. That will help keep bump stops shorter and also give me a bit more clearance. That might make the rear selections a bit easier.
