For just a little more money $999.00 you can get a whole set of Currie arms.
MUCH better than RC

OR... if you contact Evergreen4x4 here on WF, he can make you a deal on some Rock Krawler arms.

For the price of RC's X-Flex arms, you can purchase their Long Arm Upgrade for the same price. I ran the X-Flex arms as rear uppers with no issues. Now I run the Long Arm Upgrade.

nope, they're not worth it at all. spend your money on good stuff like Rokmen, Currie or Clayton Off-Road.

Id say if they use the same materials, they are the best bet....there's only so many choices of steel, and Im sure most companies make their bars from the same stuff.

I think the biggest issue is gonna be in the joints rather than the metal.

Nah, there's only a few companies that make those too. I use an offbrand joint in my rigs and the craftsmanship on them is better than the real Currie joints I had before.

Both the currie arms and the RC arms appear to have forged joints. Id say its the same stuff the poly performance, ballistic, BTF, poison spyder, etc etc uses.

If that happens to be the case, I am sure part of the cost savings in RC is gonna be in the poly or rubber bushing in one end rather than a JJ.

Ya, at 40 bucks a piece (roughly at a customers price) and 6 joints...thats 240 bucks which puts you right at the cost for rokmens or curries.

Check out BDS arms before you make a decision.

Evergreen 4x4 also sells currie arms as well...great people to deal with and has competitive prices.

But thats if you want that setup....80-90 percent of people can get away with a boulder bushing on one end and a flex joint on the other. I run um that way on my trail truggy and have never had an issue

Oh I wasnt arguing about it being whether or not it should set up that way, just figuring a price difference is all

Oh I know man ....just seems that so many jeepers these days have a exact recipe that they got from someone else instead of cooking one up on their own

those are the same i installed with my rough country lift, seem pretty decent, make sure you have a tap handy for the arm side,pain in the ass to adjust since you have to remove it to turn the joint,ride is not too bad so far but i havent wheeled it yet either
