Struts/shocks to pair w/ Rough Country lift

I am planning on purchasing the RC 2" lift soon and also plan to change out my worn out struts/shocks. I have been doing some research, and cannot decide on the best combination. I have a 2WD WK and don't intend to use my Jeep for any serious off-roading. I'd just like some extra height for any mild trail use. I still want a comfortable ride on the road, if there is such a thing with a lift. I have seen many people using the Bilstein 5100s all the way around with mixed reviews. Are Bilsteins the best and only option, or are there others that will provide the comfort I seek. I don't won't to go overboard on cost since I won't be using the Jeep as a true off-road vehicle.

Any recommendations would be helpful and appreciated.

Forgot to add as to whether the Bilstein 4600s would be a better option. I know the 5100s are height adjustable and the 4600s aren't. Just want to make sure I have all my ducks lined up for when I get ready to order everything.

I would also replace the strut mounts and spring isolators while your in there. Rock auto parts sells them.. Moog is the brand i used when i did my suspension over.
