Default Fabricating control arms drop brackets

I am planning on installing drop brackets for my XJ however I was wondering if anyone has managed to fabricate them or if anyone has drawings or measurements to do so. I am thinking on buying rough country but they seem too expensive for what they actually are.

In the time it would take to fabricate them, it's worth just buying, or making your own longarm or three link kit.

Unless you have access to something like a plasma CNC, it's more of a PITA than it's worth.
