Rancho Adjustables or OME shocks, worth every penny.

The Bilsteins are not going to break the bank either. I would recommend to anyone.

The Bilstein 5100s and OMEs will ride better than stock ever did.
Before you purchase new shocks, consider if you plan to add any lift. Buying shocks now and then again after a lift would be quite an expense.

Skyjacker Hydros. Not nitros as they're to stiff for Jeeps.

I love my SkyJacker Hydros..... I have a 2 month old set with less than 2000 miles on them that I am going to try to sell. They are stock length and I am wanting to get longer ones. PM me if anyone is interested.

I don't know what was on mine but they would compress about half way with very little resistant and didn't try to extend.

Skyjacker Hydros won't break the bank. They replaced the Sensa Tracs on mine, and the ride is 100% better.
