Recommended Shocks for a 2" lift

Hello, people. I have a JGC 1999 limited 4.7L and I have to replace my shocks.
I currently have a 2" Teraflex lift kit. I have read recently bad comments on the quality of pro comp products and I am affraid to spend my money on the wrong ones. I've seen post about people unable to adjust their shocks due to stuck knobs and things like that. One example is the following link

Do you know of any other adjustable shocks other than pro comp mx6 that offers a quality product and a smooth ride.

Thxs for any info.

Ranch RS9000 shocks.

They are the original adjustable shocks.

This link says nothing about their shocks. Personally, I don't care much for ProComp, but I have heard great things about the MX6s and I will probably end up getting them.

OME if you want long lasting performance and a pretty hard to beat on/off road ride.

Otherwise i would go Bilstein 5100s.
