WTB Bar pin eliminators

Looking for a set of bar pin eliminators. I am thinking front and rear, I might as well upgrade both.

JK only has bar pins on the rear, poly performance makes a kit for it.

I am running these on my rig. I have 2 issues with them...

1) they use an Allen head bolt to secure them to the body. To get them "snug" and avoid rattling I have effectively stripped the allen heads and needed to have my cousin weld a bolt to them so I could replace my shocks which leads me to...

2) you cannot replace the shocks without completely removing the mount as the upper shock bolt is too long to come out in that confined area.

I will go on to say that I prefer this method of mounting exponentially more than a bar pin, especially when using the rig as an off road vehicle.

I have those and have no issues with them. I was able to install the bolt for the shock while the bracket was mounted and
I didn't have any issues with the allen bolts and I did use lock tight

I used RockyRoad. No issues with bolt clearance and they used the OEM bolts to secure to the frame.
