We only get this question once a week, Bilstien 5100's or OME are the top picks.

X2. for the best ride quality the OME or bilstein's. Most twin tube hydro shocks will be the same quality, like skyjacker, rough country, rusty's, and so on. The twin tubes can ride okay, but nothing like a good set of monotubes.

Either spend the money for "good" shocks, or pick up some JK take offs. They ride far better than the cheap crap from rusty's, rc, etc.

well by saying Bistein 5100s or OME is always a good choice, but lets find out the purpose of the jeep. are you looking for rock crawling? basic DDing with minimal off road use? only crawling? crawlign with a little jeepspeed? I think a 5150 is a good intermediate shock
