OME Shocks?

I'm looking into replacing my Rough Country 2.2 shocks. I was really hoping to get a set of OME front and rear but it seems as if they dont make shocks for anything higher than 2.5". I believe my jeep has a 3.25 lift installed by the previous owner. Can anyone suggest a quality set of shocks for my jeep? Thanks in advance.

Thanks guys. I am considering going with the Bilstein 5100 shocks however after searching the quadratec website I found a set of OME sport shocks for 3.5-5" lifts. Would you guys still suggest I go with the Bilsteins over OME?

Personally I would still go with the Bilsteins, number one in my book.
Although to be completely fair I have no experience with the new technology that OME now offers.

the 3.5-5" lift shocks will be too long. you want 2.5"-3" lift shocks and to get the proper bumpstop extensions installed.
