8.8 TJ Brackets

I'm starting to build up an 8.8 for my TJ and I haven't decided which brackets to use. What are you guys using, how do you like them, where did you get them from, and how much did they cost?

Thanks

Here's a few more options:

Rusty's - made for the 3.25" 8.8 axle tubes
Rubicon Express (requires grinding)
Mad4wd
Clayton's
Currie
Carolina Rock Shop

My brackets are home built. A friend bought brackets from Mad4wd and they are nice. I would imagine they are all pretty comparable as long as they are made from 3/16".

I used MORE brackets on mine. They were very good quality and fit very well. Plus you can buy each bracket seperately if you need to. That way you don't end up with brackets you don't need if you go with a 3 link rear, or want to go with Nth degree shock shifters, or something else.

Carolina Rock Shop set mine up. Brackets are beef. No problems.
