shock replacement

looking to change 4 shocks on my 08 4x4 i have a leveling kit and add a leaf i was wondering if i should buy bigger shocks like super-lift ones that are meant for rangers with some lift. or how about sky jackers or another brand that have quality shocks. what kind of shocks do you recommend

Monroe Sensatrac (the Gas charged ones). I have a leveling Kit that picks the front up after i put in the new leaf springs. so it gives me a total inch. they keep the ride decent.

ya i just got ranchos. It sticks to the road good, handles the bumps on and off road. Plus they make one for a small lift.
