You could actually go measure to see what length you shock need... I'm willing to bet bilstein makes a shock in the length you need

You will need compressed and extended lengths. If you shocks are the limiting factor right now, you might want to remove them and flex the Jeep out with a jack/hi lift.

I know they're cheap, I really loved my procomp es9000's! I was running a hair over 5" of lift with 33s.
