Okay I'm getting Kevin's 2.5" BB, now which shocks?

I am getting the 2.5" BB from kevin. I just need to decide which shocks to buy now. I doni't plan to do any sort of rock crawling or wheeling or anything like that. The further extend of any off-roading i'd be doing is some mud or something like that, nothing big.

I have a choice to make between the MX-6 shocks, the Edelbrock-built Monotube Shocks, The Bilstein shocks, and the Rubicon shocks. I want something that will maintain the nice ride that the Grand Cherokee comes with, allow for me handle virutlaly everything the "on-road" world has to offer, and allow for me to maintain highway speeds as I usually do. What is your preference between these choices and what do you think I should get for my needs?

Thanks a lot.

I heart my MX6's, but if you don't want to fool around with adjustments - Bilstiens are probably the best.
