Updating F&R to Adjustable Track Bar

Hey guys. I'm slowly upgrading the suspension components, that the previous owner installed, on my 06 LJR. I am currently running stock F&R track bars on my 4 lift. I came across a guy selling slightly used Rubicon Express F&R adjustable track bars for $120 total. I saw that they run around $165/each. Any thoughts on these track bars?
Thanks for the help.

Ryan

I would not buy those even if they seem like a good deal.
The only ones known to not have clearance issues are Metalcloak, Currie, and jks.
I run MC front and rear, they are priced right and very beefy.

X2...
Personally, I would stick with either Currie or Metalcloak. Metalcloak is the least expensive with the best clearance. Don't skimp on track bars, a failed track bar can mean a really bad accident.

X3 on MC. Plenty of clearance, no angled rear bracket, and very strong.

A member on here not too long ago had his RE track bar snap with normal highway driving.

Wow! Great information. I love my MC springs and aluminum arms. I guess I'll just save up and go with the MC. Thanks for all the info.

I also run the MC front track bar (maybe rear eventually too) and I like it.
