Shocks-newb/dumb *** question

Hi all, I have a 95 yj and I know next to nothing about suspensions, hell anything mechanical about my jeep, but I am learning alot from reading this forum. It's my daily driver, mostly stock, and I like it just the way it is. (and upgrade parts in canada cost a fortune) One thing I was thinking about doing though,was getting better shocks like self adjusting rancho's. My question is this, how would different shocks effect the ride? More or less bumpy, or stays the same? I am just curious cause I have seen other stock jeeps with ranchos on them and wondered how they rode? I know, ******* question.

Does it still have stock shocks on it. How is the ride now (too stiff too soft)? I would think there would be other things on my list to do first, if the stock shocks were still OK. What would you like your Jeep to be able to do, you know, what is the intended function? Daily driver only or would you also like to be... moderate off-road, trail rig, monster truck, etc.

I find that with YJs, a stiff ride is the norm. The only way I have found to ease this is the removal of the trac bars. Shocks do a lot....but not enough. (for me)
