Advice on new Tires? (Shock advice)

Hey Gang- After living on the buying forum and Craigs list for months, I finally bought my Jeep! I got an 2001 Burgundy Sport 4.0, Auto, very clean with low miles. I will be joining asap and get some pics up etc.. Anyway I think she is gonna need tires soon. I have 31/10.50's on Alloys and I think I will stay with that size. I will be using it as a dd mainly with maybe some lite wheeling. Just wondering what brand of tires are good all purpose for highway traction, best ride, etc for the $$? I think I may also need shocks soon, are the ride from the Rancho
9000's worth the $$?

Thanks and post my pics/profile soon!

BF Goodrich AT's are good and last long.Go with Skyjacker hydros for $135 or RE or BDS if you want to spend more money.
p.s. This isn't a tech question and will be moved soon.Here's where you want to post your question.

For something different than BFG ATs, also look at the Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armors. I've run both the BFG AT and the GY Silent Armors. I like the Silent Armors better for highway use.

I just got a set of Procomp Xtreme MT's in that size and I love them. I had BFG At's before and my new MT's ride just as well. They are a touch noisier but I really like it. I do mostly highway but I like that i've got a bit of an MT for when I go wheeling.

I had some BFG All Terrains on my Cherokee that rode well on the road, and still gave the Jeep an aggressive look.

The tires actually out lasted the car... stupid PO didn't take care of it, and I got stuck with it.
