I 'd say save some cash and just go with 5100s. Awesome shocks.

Make sure you get the 5100 model that is specifically valved for the Wrangler. If you don't, they will be valved too tightly and your Jeep will ride more stiffly than it needs to. Many Bilstein dealers are clueless that there is a 5100 valved specifically for the Wrangler so don't let them sell you the wrong model.

Getting Savvy...

When you have a choice, buy American.
