Replacement upcountry shocks?

So my upcountry shocks are pretty rusty and looking to replace what should I go with that would be comparable? I thought about getting the rubicon express economy lift with shocks but I have heard some people say that their shocks aren't that great.

The OE UC shocks were made by Boge, but the yellow Bilstein HDs would be a good replacement.

Agreed - the UC shocks were also a high pressure monotube design. Bilsteins would be the best replacement. PM me for pricing on a set.
