What brand of shocks should I get?

I'm bringing my 2001 Jeep Cherokee Sport back to life and I desperately need need new shocks.

Everything is stock and I want a smoother ride that will hold up to these horrible Detroit streets.

I've never done shocks before so I'm not to sure what to get.

Any suggestions would be awesome

I would buy Bilsteins or KYB's for OEM sizes.

I don't own an XJ any longer, but I still think they are the best of all the Jeep products ever made. My XJ was my favorite vehicle in my 50+ years of driving.
So...I stick around and give advice.
