Xj drop brackets

Who has the best control arm brackets and for the best price? I see RE has them for about $250 and RC has them for around $185. anyone else know of any other options?

Rough Country is the only other maker of drop brackets at this time ( http://www.roughcountry.com/jeep_xj_4.html ). The people that have installed them are happy with the kit.

I have an RE drop bracket kit and am getting ready to install it. The parts are very heavy duty.

Both use esentially the same design. The biggest difference is in the brace. The RE kit does not come with the brace which takes the total price somewhere over 300 and the brace is longer going back all the way to the crossmember while the RC brace is shorter and uses two self tapping screws into the uniframe.
