the lift you need depends on what size tires you will be using and how much you are willing to spend

both of those kits are fine, but the rubicon express kit has better shocks- and yes you will need new shocks for this lift kit

Either kit will be ok. I personally ran the SkyJacker kit for about a year and didn't have any issues with it.
