Why do fellow jeepers replace their adjustable control arms for fixed?

Why do fellow jeepers replace their adjustable control arms for fixed?

I've read threads and talked to fellow jeepers who have changed their front end around and in the process they say they changed their adjustable control arms for fixed.

What is the point in changing them from adjustable to fixed?
Are the fixed stronger?
Are they swapping them out just for the hell of it?

i havent heard of anyone favoring fixed over adjustable. the only reasons i could see someone doing so is that their adjustables are ruined and fixed replacements are cheaper, or when adding drop brackets, their adjustables are too long and some shorter fixed arms fit properly.

Completely stock, and keeping it that way...

Only logical reason to go fixed over adjustable.

96 XJ 4.0 / 231 / 3.5" JY Lift/ 31" BFG /.....
93 VT1100 - Harley killer.
97 ZJ 4.0 / 242 / Stock
93 ZJ 4.0 / 2"BB / Wranglers / RIP-Gone but not forgotten.

If it aint dirty, it aint a JEEP, it's just a SUV.
