DoetschTech DT3000 or BDS.

A recent Gallup public opinion poll shows the NRA, at 58% approval, has a higher approval rating than either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.

I had a set of these on my XJ and quickly got rid of them. I found them to be obnoxiously firm on pavement, and much too floppy on the 4x4 trails. I think they are a one-size-fits-all for full size trucks, and don't perform very well on a lightweight XJ.

Look at Skyjacker Nitro and Hydro if you are in the reasonably priced market, I know they are not a site favorite here, but I have them on all four corners and they ride well street and off road. Definitely not something you'd want for rock climbing but for trail riding and urban potholes they do fine.

IMO Skyjacker and Rough Country shocks are looked down upon for good reasons. DoetschTech DT3000 are about the same price or slightly cheaper, are properly valved for an XJ, and have much better performance on road, and on the 4x4 trails.

Nobody recommends Bilstein? I put them on mine with a 3" lift (that has settled) and they seem fine.

He said cheap. Wouldn't exactly consider Bilsteins cheap.

I am running the new Quadratec Hydros and really like them. Better than stock and I have Crown HD springs.

I have Bilstein 4600's on my 1998 daily driver. IMO, they ride firmer than most shocks, but not obnoxiously firm. They sorta make my XJ more sports car like than 4x4 like. They are somewhat expensive.
