My dad has a 2001 Jeep Cherokee 60th Anniversary Ed. and his shocks are starting to go bad/he wants new ones. He doesn't have a lift, nor want one.....all he wants to replace is his shocks (nothing else). The only thing he has added to the Jeep is 30" BFG AT Ko's, which are mounted on the stock 60th ann. 5star wheels.
What shocks do you reccomend he put on if that is the only modification he is doing to the Jeep??????????
He mentioned Rancho? But, please list the type of shocks you think are the best for a 2001 Cherokee.
Bought a pair of Monroe Reflex for the front of my 01 limited and they ride really nice. I need to do the rear next, but was waiting for the weather to get a little warmer in case I break the top bolts.

I have a 2001 and i threw on Rancho Rsxs the same time I threw on BFG ATs.... made the the ride much harsher, almost like a sports car. In hindsight I prob would have gone OMEs but they are a good shock, just really stiff
If money is not an issue I would get the Old Man Emus. I have a lifted rig but of every shock I've use at different hights, I like the OMEs the best. They are firm without being stiff but forgiving without being squishy. From my experiences and friend's:
Rancho 5000, very stiff and crappy ride,
Rancho RSX (gas pressurized) as stated before, very stiff sportscar-like ride.
Various hydro shocks have been either too squishy or way to stiff.
