    As far as I know all the weld-in braces are the same... I've heard of some iffy stampings from certain places tho... The bolt-in is strictly an ORD product..

    All that being said, there is always a homebrewed setup.. strategic plating, boxing or washer weld-ins can do a hella job beefing up that area...

    I believe the bolt in is strictly an ORD branded product. The actual manufacturer is http://www.autofab.com/

    Dude, call the bazillion othere 4x4 places out there. I doubt that every shop is actually out of those braces.
