Stock shocks vs teraflex 9550 shocks?

Im looking into a 2.5 BB for my 09 rubicon unlimited. i have decided the best kit would be a TERAFLEX budget Boost Spring Spacers. They have two options on how to run this kit. Should i get the shock extenders or the new shocks?

I have the shock extenders on my Rubi and have been very happy with them. Ride is great and it performs very well.

i wont know till i have them installed on my 6" lift.. but from what i hear.. the 9550s are good shocks.. im running the rubicon express monotubes now and they ride good but seem a little stiff for my taste..

I have the shock extensions on my 08 2 door X and they are way too soft for offroading. Its almost like trying to take a Cadillac down a rough dirt road. Your rubicon shocks are probably better offroad than my X shocks.

My thoughts are to go with the teraflex shocks if you plan to offroad it and have the money for it.

ANYTHING ...and I mean anything - is better than the factory crap. I don't know if the Rubi shocks have the same lower bushing design as the Sahara, but I blew out 3 out of 4 of the lower bushings from wheeling. The shock bodies were fine, but a serious design flaw with the big washers and non-urethane bushings IMO. By 15k miles, my JK sounded like a 1970's jallopy rattling and squeaking over the slighest bump.

I went with BDS. I don't know how bulletproof they are, but they have a top-notch warranty and I've beaten these down way harder than the stock shocks and they ride awesome and are holding up well.
