Can't help you with that price range but if you can afford to wait and save some extra $$ PMF bars are quality bars and should last you for whatever you do with them.

Newton lifts has a set for 600 shipped. You can go directly to his website or purchase off ebay. Just search for fat boy traction bars on eBay and it will come up. I should be finishing installing my set tomorrow if I can get the bolts tightened up good enough without getting any special tools. I may have a friend weld a few spots to the frame to keep them from vibrating loose. Some say they have issues with them coming loose and some don't. His new designed bars have 4 bolts for the frame mounted bracket like the high quality kits. If not, save up for pmf. They have plenty of great reviews from lots of people on the site.

I'm sure you won't have any complaints with their kit. I just finished putting my newton bars on today and was able to take it for a spin. As for ride quality, I don't notice any binding, noises, or change from before. Definitely feels a lot smoother and the shifts feel like stock again. Couldn't get on it hard because it was raining but I'm excited for it to dry up so I can go for a ride.

Just got mine on this last week, a much noticed difference in shifting, a big difference when I pulled the 5th wheel this weekend using my 210 Tow perf/NEGR, shifts were if it was on stock.
Like it!

I have the Pro Comp bars and they made a significant difference in my ride quality and when towing goosenecks. I bought them NIB from a member on here. I already had a PMF lift block in the rear and hadn't planned on putting on the bars or else I would have gone with the PMF setup from the beginning. Now that I've had the bars on the truck for the first time, I'll put them on all of my future trucks. Well worth it.
