Bolt in will just bolt up after drilling a couple holes. They are not as rigid, and tend to eventually wear the holes and not do much good. I would get the weld in or weld the bolt on connectors after they are attatched.

I just bought a set from jegs. Ended up buying the Comp. Engineering ones that bolt in because I didn't want to modify the rear frame rails. (Not yet anyway) As per the Comp Engineering instructions, I plan on welding these in for the added strength though.

Just be careful if you order a set from whoever that you don't have to modify the rear frame to accept the connectors.

It takes about 2 hours or so to bolt them in. Very simple.
