Need advice on brand of lift

I have a 2010 4 door and I want to put 35's or 33's under it. I know 33's will fit now. What brand lift would you say has the best ride? Does anybody have pictures of there jeep with 35's? My jeep is an Automatic.

Every one is going to "promote" their lift brand..Just do a lot of Forum searching.. There is a lot of info on this subject..In fact you might start over here with this "sticky"

You can always contact the post member in question for more details once you find something you like...

I dont have a lift yet (soon ....BUT rumor has it and im sure most people here will agree that Teraflex makes some of the best lifts for ride quality and overall quality. They're a bit pricier but if its your DD you may appreciate the added value!

^I'd agree with that. Each brand, and even then, to break it down, each individual lift, has its ups and downs. Here's a general rundown:
Rock Krawler- off-road focused- killer flex, and not bad on-road (what I run in mine)
Teraflex- good on-road and not bad off (Their shocks are rather soft for my liking)
Old Man Emu- probably the best mix of on and off-road comfort, but zero frills, so you'll have to add on from other companies if you want more than bare basics
Rough Country- garbage, pure and simple
Skyjacker- alright on-road, alright off. I'd look elsewhere
Black Diamond/Superlift- good shocks- good on-road, decent off-road

Then you can break it down further from there. Due to the WIDE variety, I'll let you pick and choose. For 35's, between 2.5 and 4" is what you need. 2.5" will be fine for a DD that doesn't need much extra flex off-road. 3.5-4" is what you need for hardcore rocks and 35's.
Also, you'll need to consider gearing- 4.88 or 5.13 is what you need for 35's with the automatic, 5.13 being the better pick.
Hope this helps some- Mark W.
