Rough Country forged track bars

Looks like hot off the presses, Rough Country is now making 'monster' style forged track bars. They look like the TF version with on-vehicle adjuster sleeves and rubber bushings. Hunnert-n-atey bones a pop. I prefer a bushing/heim setup for longer travel crawl rigs, but these could be nice for other applications.

I would be leary of them RC tends to use cheap materials I would not expect their bushings and adjuster sleeves to hold up well but someone will have to test them find out. $180 is up there in cost for a track bar with rubber bushings. Metalcloak used their OEM rubber bushing style track bar with 14" travel shocks so they apparently flex well considering.

RC bushing usually are junk. I know on my old control arms the ones they made fell apart in no time. But I've heard/read they switched to OEM replacement bushings for durability, and it looks like those are on this new trackbar, so maybe they will hold up better. Still not for me though.
