I still say cutting and welding a piece of solid round bar on the stock tb would be more secure than any kind of hollowed tube with threads.
I have rock krawlers HD trac-bar and frame mount. It has a lifetime (you break it we replace it) warranty. It is very heavy duty, but requires some frame drilling and redrilling the axle mount for a bigger bolt. Took me about 1.5 hours to install and cured the bumpsteer issue I had from the previous owner installing a drop pitman arm and leaving the trac-bar stock. What ever you go with I would suggest using a new frame mount with a double shear mount instead of the poorly designed factory tierod set-up. The double shear mount is much stronger and will not bind-up when flexing.

RC track bars are junk I went through three joints in 1 year before I slung that crap over the hill and went and bought a currie. the joints are cheap made and do not last. don't be cheap buy a good trac bar or the joints will wear out and you'll have death wobble problems. that was my case. since I bought the new one I have had no problems whatsoever.
[quote=Unlimitedlou;9462123]I just ditched the crappy RC TB and put on a Currie. The RC was a PITA to install and caused DW. I installed my Currie yesterday and all my DW issues are over.[/quote
