Stock Rubi Shocks or Aftermarket

When I buy my JKU Rubicon in about 6 months I plan on putting a 2.5" suspension lift on it. What are the recommendations on the shocks? I know the rubicon has different shocks from all the other versions of the wrangler, but are they something I should still consider replacing for some decent aftermarket shocks?

If you lift it you will need longer shocks or extensions. The rubi shocks are actually pretty decent. Up to you on that one.

X2. If your kit comes with extensions it's worth keeping the stock ones until they wear out. If you drive off road they will wear out sooner than you think and by then you'll have a better idea of which shocks to buy.

Thanks for your input guys. I believe the Teraflex 2.5" lift comes with extensions for the shocks, so I'll probably stick with the stock.
