I'm thinking I'll still go with the JB4X4 bracket, but I really like that BTF one. I don't know..... As for breaking a Heim, I would probably carry a set of spares, but those things are rated at 78,000 pounds, so I'm not sure that's really a big concern.

How about this, if you had the Jeep Spirit, you wouldn't abuse the rest of us trying to enjoy a nice day out wheeling by bringing your brokeass broken down junkyard crap out to play where it can't handle it?[/QUOTE]

I say go with the bluetorch bracket with the heims. I DD my jeep with heims its absolutely perfect for pushing 3 years no more popping tiny TRE's. As far as the jb bracket my experience was less than satisfactory it got put on my buddies S10 with a swapped in yj 30/SOA waggys springs and he managed to crack it driving on the street. Could just be because it wasnt in jeep
I like running tre's for several reasons, but the main being that I can go to any parts store and replace one if it blows on the trail. I know you can carry extra Hemi joints, I have several wheelin buddies that run them.
The thing that got me to run the tre's was when a buddy of mine blew several hemi's in one trip. The problem was that he didn't have a 3rd replacement and it made for one hell of a last day. If he had tre's we were less than an hour trip to a parts store.
Personally I run TRE's because I DD my rig and like being able to go to a parts store for replacements. Also you can go with larger than stock tre's. In all honesty if I was doing it again I would just go to a pick and pull and get a Grand cherokee outer and run that. The less custom stuff you have in a drive train the more likely you are to be able to find it at a parts store, or someone else having what you need on the trail.
