Superior and Yukon are great companies, with a good reputation for quality. I think that Superior has good customer service as well. I have no experience with Alloy USA except for some shafts that I had on my '06 Unlimited TJ.

Just ordered Superior 5.13's for mine. I'm guessing 151.99 a set is a pretty good deal.
