Rubicon express or rough country 2.2 performance shocks

I'm sorry if I am asking a dumb question but what shocks are better the RE or the RC 2.2 they are the same prize and I need to replace shocks anyway. Can someone who has run them give me a little feedback. My Jeep is a daily driver so a more comfortable ride would be ideal.

Any thoughts?

Bilstein or fox if you want a comfortable ride. The Rancho adjustable shocks are also known to have a nice ride.

OME has great comfortable shocks too, but not adjustable.

I had the RC 2.2 shocks and they were leaking within a year.
All of those listed by my friends above have good reviews
