Hello all, need some advice

Looking for some advice. My 04 WJ limited is in need of some new shocks. It has the upcountry suspension with the upgrade gas shocks. I don't plan on doing a lift any time soon and don't do any extreme off roading...I know, boring! I want something that is comparable (ride wise) to stock. When I do a search for compatible shocks there aren't many. I know everyone says Bilstein, but I wasn't sure if that was overkill or worth the extra $$ for a daily driver. I have found the Monroe Reflex and the OE Sachs shocks. Just wondered if anyone has had experience with any of these and had some tips or suggestions.

Re: Hello all, need some advice

Welcome to the garage.
I had used the Monroe Reflex shocks. They where comfortable, but didnīt last that long. Started leaking at around 40k Km. I have now Kyb gas-a-just, a stiffer mono shock, which gives better control.
The car came with the Sachs shocks, which i liked a lot as well. Lasted 90k Km.
I have no experience with Bilsteins.
