    The air shocks from the rear of an 80s chevy g10 van might work

    That's what I used on my lifted tj and now use on my xj (g van shocks). You'll need an adapter to make the top mount work. google Jeep shock adapter and you'll find it. It makes it possible to run shocks with loop ends rather than the stud style that is used on the stock Jeep.

    Get some bar pin eliminators/stud eliminator and you can run a standard rear shock with the eye lets.
