Will the penske shocks be as stiff or perform as well as the stockers?
Adjustable?

I threw a set of munroes on mine this summer after both my fronts blew at less then 120,000 km, pretty crap milage for an oem part. I got both for $150, didn't want to spend more because I would like to go coil overs next year. Ride feels the same as before mine were blown. I was curious at first as i read all the same coments on only oem will work. The fronts were identical in stroke and size as the bilstiens, but the Monroe's have a bigger shaft wich is usually better.
The rears I got were 2" longer stroke, and when I pulled the stock off the jeep they were still good, so put them back on.

You got a part# for the monroes? Only strut brackets listed for 6.1, guessing its the regular Overland shock you went with...

Honestly no difference in Performance? Would love to hear more about these...

Just found the receipt, Monroe sensatrac strut #71377.
I have never driven on brand new Bilsteins but the Monroe's feel fine to me. You could maybe tell the difference if your drive hard all the time or take it to the track often. But for the driving that mine does (its pretty much my wifes dd) they feel good, especially for the $150 I paid for the pair. Better then blown and leaking Bilsteins. I had read all the complaints on stock so I figured I'd give these a shot for the price, no complaints here.
I want to go coil overs or something else if someone releases something soon but that wasn't an option at the time.
