Best All Around Shocks For Daily Driver

My Cherokee is my daily driver, so I'm looking for shocks that will give me the best on road ride but will still get the job done when I take it off road. I've been running Monroe Reflex for a long time (replaced the stock ones), and I'm pretty happy with them, but I know there are lot of people with more experience than I have. Any words of wisdom? By the way, I don't plan to lift, and I want to keep the price down. Thanks!

I like my BDS 5500's. But if your looking for the best on-road comfort, I'd have to say Old Man Emu.

Maintain, wheel, upgrade, repeat.

^^ bilstein 5100s or 5150s are good, but if you want ride quality go with Old man Emu.

I run the OME's. They are a bit "firm" on bumpy dirt roads, but on pavement - lets just say that I go through "round-abouts" on two wheels Very nice ride !

I'm right 97% of the time. The other 4% doesn't matter.
