There are two designs. Solid and plate formed. Solid would be Teraflex or PureJeep. Many make the plate versions such as EVo, Poly, Artec, etc, etc.

Aesthetically I prefer the solid stock. Strength wise, I wouldn't imagine there is any reason to pick one or the other.

Or you could go the overkill route like USMCDOC and do both!

Bought and welded in the Teraflex C gussets which are the the inner type and just the tops. Did them when I was putting on 35's. A year later, as I was going to 37's I realized I wanted the lowers done as well. Got a hook up from a fellow JKO member in Synergy lowers which are the plate type.

Not a super sexy story but it is what it is.

For what it's worth, I like the plate style.

I like the look of the plate style buy went with the tera flex solid ones. My thought process was the solid ones have more surface area to weld to. One of the draw backs to the tera flex style gussets is they can contact your coils.
