Default Best Struts?

I have an 08 Ford Ranger 4x4. All 4 struts are worn out and need replacement. I don't have much money not looking to change the suspension up too much. I'm just wondering what are the best struts I can throw on my truck are or anything good that is reasonably priced.
Thanks!

Btw not looking for street performance. Looking for something effective offroad.

What's the deal with these cheap lift kits? Would something like this fuck up my ride? Would I be better of going with these shocks and no lift?

That lift has torsion keys in the picture. Keys do the exact same thing cranking your torsion bars does, it's a waste of money. Cranking your torsion bars is free with the exception of an alignment afterwards. Also, if you do buy this kit or crank your torsion bars, depending on the degree you crank your bars, it will accelerate wear and tear on suspension parts because of the now increased angle on parts such as the CV axle
