Which shocks?(sorry)

First off:


Secondly:
I am going to install a 2" budget boost(already purchased for a great deal from a member/mod on here(doclouie )
I figured I might as well replace my stock shocks with some quality shocks that are meant for the 2" lift..
I do not want Rancho's(made that mistake once, most AWEFUL riding shocks I've ever rode on)

What would be best for my situation? I drive on everything, pavement, dirt, trails, and mud (no extreme rock climbing, but certaily some trail riding!!)

I feel I would like the Bilstein 5100's or OME(based on others opinions/facts on here) but am certainly open to others..

So let me have it!?

Bilsteins ...... I went 2" BDS coils with the 5100's. Feels great.
