Default B4 aftermarket connecting rods “Crauler”

Has anyone heard of “Crauler” B4 con rods . I bought some at Hershey and that was the name the vendor gave for the insert bearing rods which he had written on the box , which to me the uninitiated , look a little like Crower rods. But a fraction of the price.

Does any one happen to have a picture of some crower rods for comparison?

Here is a pic of one in an engine. On most of them the beam and upper end are pretty much the same. Some brands have angle cut caps.

IMHO, you get what you pay for. In critical parts, cheap insurance is just that.

The pic is of "Crower" copied rods. I do not know where they came from.

You take your chances, as the saying goes.
