Dealer Installed this lift before I bought the Jeep, does anyone know if these are the stock shocks in the pic?

With this lift, can I stay with stock length? And have considered changing some day to maybe Rancho RS9000 Series?
The adjustable series if my number isn't right... Since I don't expect to do much or only mild off roading - I don't think I need to worry about breaking the "knob" off. The also have a remote control - anyone have any experience with it? And how does it work? Thanks....

They look like the stock shocks.

Is it just the budget boost lift? If so you can run the stock shocks.

There are relocation bracket for them that go with the budget boost if you want them.

I ran a budget boost with stock shocks for quite a while and had no problems.

That silver thingy (sorry if I get too technical here) looks like some kind of extension that may be just screwed on to the stud on top of the shock.

"That silver thingy (sorry if I get too technical here) looks like some

Yes, that is an extension in the top. Rears have the adapter for them to do the same thing.

This is as much lift as I expect to go with. Is there any reason I would want to go with something else?

Should work as is if you aren't going to lift any more. Good thing about it is you can pick up stock shocks for cheap if you ever need to. I have a set sitting in my garage.
