    Welcome! Replacing shocks with a different brand should be no issue.

    Welcome! Any reputable auto parts store (brick+mortar or online) should be able to hook you up with the right shocks for a GC. When you state "country shocks" are you referring to Rough Country shocks that may have unique dimensions related to a lift?

    Recollecting a Jeep option 1999-2003 was the UP COUNTRY suspension group. The suspension package upgraded shocks, springs and gave up to 1" of lift.
