Which brand shocks?

Just wondering which brand shocks everyone is running?
I am looking to put shocks on my 93 XJ that has a 3" lift on it.
Thanks.

Mike, a real good resource for Cherokees is: http://www.naxja.com

I just run cheap shocks. Mine are all worn out Deutsche Tech(or however its spelled..)... I'm replacing with some Gabriel Gas Ryders. I get them cheap off Ebay.

Front Shocks for a YJ wrangler will work for a XJ with a 3" lift. You just need to press the bar pin from your old shock into the eye on the YJ shock.

depends on your what your willing to spend... rancho 5000 are good all round, little stiffer on the road. 9000 are great for the a custom setup... 5000s fall in the middle of there range usually. Cheap on summitracing

i run the rancho rs5000 on my TJ......no problems at all, and really not a bad ride......i also heard that the rancho RSX are a pretty good deal, a little more expensive than the 5000's but i heard they r worth it....
