the ruff stuff looks beefy as hell, but i think im going to go with IRO steering. there angles just seem to match up better with the stock track bar location.

If you are running factory location steering then the iro track bar will be fine. Just remember the iro track bar bracket is a 3/4" drop which can throw off your angles.
