JKS vs Tomkin Machine vs Rubicon Express sway bar discos

Hi everyone. I'm in the process of revamping my suspension and replacing all of my old Rough Country stuff with better/ more durable components. As far as sway bar links go- I have 3 choices in mind. Obviously the JKS links, I've heard these are the best from just about everyone. I also found the RE Extreme Duty links- they look very similar to the JKS ones and the Tomkin Machine links. I know Tomkin is a quality producer of armor and bumpers but does anyone know how there discos stack up? Basically- what do you guys think is my best choice for durability and usability?

This, I ended up with the RE's this time around and have owned JKS in the past, basically the same product.

I went with what I thought was a quality yet affordable set, Zone Offroad. They've held up great. JKS would have been the go-to had I been able to afford them at the time.
