    That's a subjective question. Shocks, I use Camil and am very happy. Some guys love em, some hate em. I won't be getting them again when the time comes as the cost it just too high but they do handle corrugations well.

    Tyres, look at a LT tyre. BF Goodrich or Cooper. Honestly I have no experience with them as they cost too much. I run Dunlop MT2 tyres and have no problems. I will be doing the Tankwa in August so we will have to see how they handle that tyre eating road. My view on the dunlops could change😀.

    No matter what tyre you get, make sure you deflate to the correct pressure. Great tyres and the wrong pressure = bad tyres.

    You don't say what car this is for or how much weight/ load you will have on it? Also is budget a factor?

    OME PB-51 suspension.
    Then a set of 33 - 35" Mud terrains.

    Should make quite a difference.
