Choosing shocks

I have a 2.5" Rock Krawler lift going on next week and had planned to pair with Bilstein 5100s but the rears are on backorder...can anyone suggest a worthy replacement?....

I have a set of air shocks on the rear of my jeep, you can air them up to haul so more weight, or let some air out for a smooth ride. It's a great choice, and I plan to get a set for the front to keep my jeep level with a after market bumper on the front.
I never get stuck, just momentarly delayed
