RE vs Bilstein shocks

for 3-4" lift, which is the better choice in a monotube shock? Price seems comparable so I just want to know if there are any clear winners here and why?

ZJ - 5.9 Limited
WJ - 4.0 Laredo
WJ - 4.7 Laredo

The Rubicon Express monotubes are made by Bilstein and are a 5100 series shocks. The only difference is that the RE shocks are powdercoated grey vs the zinc plating of the Bilstein shocks.

PM me or email me for pricing. I have the Bilstein 5100 series on special right now I also have the RE shocks available if you'd prefer those.
