How reliable?

If I got 4.56's with my 33's how tough are they going to be. (no matter what brand of gears).

Has anyone ever had any problems with 4.56's if so how did it happen?

by the way i have a d44 .

First off, if you are doing this on your own and have not done this before......you need to think twice or get some experienced help.

You do not need a 4wd shop to install/check R&P....a speed shop, hot rod shop, axle shop, truck shop and some garages have certified mechanics who do this.

Look in the superpages.com

Brand of gears can play a factor in how durable they will be. I like to use OE parts with my axles. They cost a little more, but IMO, it's well worth it when the labor for the job is so expensive.

It would probably be worth it to drive a few hours then to a good shop...I looked into doing this myself a year or so back with the 03 TJ...you need a bunch of specialized tools number one that will set you back a good amount...and from everything I researched you just dont want to try it on your own...you will have nothing but problems...most shops wont even let most of the mechanics do gears...they normally only have one or maybe two guys that are qualified to do them...So, unfortunately you are gonna have to drive is what it sounds like...but as to your original question...a properly installed new set of gears shouldnt give you any trouble whatsoever...they should be just like factory except better suited for your tire size...
