Door limiters, metal billet or straps

My son's TJ (used) came with a billet door limiter no the passenger door and the nylon strap on the driver's door. These are full metal doors. Since the billet side fasterner's have obviously been loose for a long time, I am going to have to beef up the attaching points with some new metal and welding.

What do you all recommend for the door limiters. Should I go with the billet limiters from QTec like these:

Armadillo Industries 44120-R - Armadillo Industries Billet Mechanical Door Stops for 87-06 Jeep® Wrangler YJ, TJ & Unlimited - Quadratec

Or the nylon options like these

Warrior Products 90797 - Warrior Products Tube Door Limiting Straps for 87-06 Jeep® Wrangler YJ, TJ & Unlimited - Quadratec and
Kentrol 30569 - Kentrol Lower Door Pins for 97-06 Jeep® Wrangler TJ & Unlimited - Quadratec

Or something else entirely. I'm looking for options

Thanks,

Im sure I wont be the last to say it, but I really like the looks of door straps made from paracord. I just got some cord today and will most likely make a couple straps for mine when I fix the strap loop on the door.

^ These are what I use. I bought the black ones off of Amazon. Good quality with standard and shorter swing settings.

I like the EK straps too. Allows just a bit of color into your interior.
