JKS is what I have, love them, but a bit pricey, but you get what you pay for, the bushings are awesome and they are really beefy.

In front best options are JKS #126, Currie TJS/TJJ or the Metalcloak. This is based on what works when it comes to diff & steering clearance, lift height, and bumpstop extension requirements.

In the rear you want to look at JKS, Currie or Metalcloak. Metalcloak is the better option from what I've seen so far. Clearance between the frame (gas tank mount) and the track bar is critical to not losing suspension function.

More info here: TJ track bar clearance issues.

This is the one I just bought.
Can you cancel the order? I've heard Rusty's has a pretty bad return policy, but you could always try.

I have the JKS heavy duty front bar.

Nice heavy piece BUT I really dislike the fact that I had to drill out the frame side mount for a straight bolt. OE is a tapered bolt and IMO that is a far superior design. Not sure why the couldn't change the part up a bit for this.

Just installed it a few days, I'll take a chance.

The OME Ultimate Kit comes with the JKS track bars. Nice and beefy. Otherwise, I would buy the Metal Cloak one just to save a few bucks.

Currie front and rear. No Heim type joints, superb quality. Love them.

I thought there was a discussion on lift height with the Metalcloak bar? I believe it was about three inches being the relative cutoff point for it. I guess if you have over three from the springs though you're good, assuming what I heard was correct.
