new shock advise

i have a 2013 wrangler 2 door that is all stock. i dont plan on doing a lift
on it as it is used mostly as a daily driver and for towing behind my
motorhome. not going to do much if any 4 wheelin.

i just would like to soften up the ride since i am 70 years old and just drive
it mostly on the street and freeway.

what shocks would u recommend that will give me a nice soft ride like a
cadillac? thanks for any help and opinions.

Rancho's come to mind first due to price and adjustablitiy you can adjust them to your preference.

+1 on the Rancho 9000s. Not expensive at all and you can dial in your ride perefernce.

IMO I've found OME (Old Man EMU) shocks to have a very compliant ride on road as well.
