Stock Shock replacement

2006 Wrangler Unlimited (45K miles) with stock shocks. Looking to replace with an upgrade, but not going to lift the Jeep. Best replacement shock? Also, will be replacing stock tires (G/Y Wrangler GSA) with BFG All Terrains as sson as I can get the G/Y's worn out. Feedback on the BFG's? Thanks in advance!! Jim

Bilstein or OME.

BFG AT's are great tires. Will get you plenty of miles out of them compared to a MT and are good enough for most trails.

Just bought a True Hi9 rear and a D44 front, both with ARB's and 4.88 gears!! Check out the build!

Thanks!! I've always heard good things about Bilsteins. OME = Old Man Emu? Not familiar, but found them in 4wd Parts catalog. After looking at pix and reading some of the posts here on WF, I'm starting to consider a mild lift. I could spend way too many hours cruising this forum as opposed to actually driving my Jeep!! And then spending way too much money copying you guys!
