From your experience what's the best brand to go with? Most reliable?

Pro comp, totally legit and epic quality. Make sure you have it installed at 4wheelparts and the installer is a teenager between 17 and 18 years old of age.

Just kidding, teraflex, rock krawler, metalcloak, aev, old man emu offer good reliability. Have you looked at any? do you have a height in mind?

That's hard to answer. Best as far as quality?
Which kit, how much lift and what's included ?
"Brand" RK, TF, MC, OME, CURRIE, CLAYTON, SYNERGY. There's so many.

Currie/Savvy or Metalcloak have the best quality in terms of "kits." however, I suggest piecing together a kit with carefully selected items known to produce a reliable and well-working suspension.

There are a few good kits out there. I have a Teraflex lift in my current jeep and am very happy with it.

How much and what kind of wheelin' do you do?

As others have said there are a lot brands. Some are the best, some are good, some are OK and the rest are cheap. Do yourself a favor and don't go cheap.

Reliability is important but it's not that the cheap kits fall apart and you have a yard sale on the trail. The coils springs sag, bushings squeak, the joints and shocks do wear out, the ride and handling are poor and get progressively worse and sometimes brackets bend. Besides that the cheap kits are nothing but joy.

Of your springs or shocks fail, chances are your suSpension is set up improperly.

What size tires do you want?
