Shock Question

I did some searching, but I am lazy so I will just ask. My friend wants to buy some new shocks. Money is not an issue. He has a TJ with currie 9" in front and currie 60 in back. He has a 6.5 rubicon long arm lift. Ram Jet 350. He has the Old man emu shocks right now. He says they feel to soft. He drives his jeep some on the road, but mainly on rocks, but not extreme rocks. Any suggestions. i told him I would find what he need. I was kinda leaning toward Bilstein. Thanks

I am leaf sprung, but I bought a set of Fox 2.0 Series emulsion shocks. Main reason is because I want the ability to rebuild on my end. Should the damping not turn out, I can change the shim pack and dial it in. This does require you to have compressed nitrogen on hand for the 200psi required pressure. A small tank rental provides that.

But since money isn't an object, I'd spring for the 2.5 series with remote reservoir cause they look cooler . . . .

Rubicon shocks

He bought those Rubicon shocks with the remote resavoir. Don't no to much about them, they were about $159 each.
