You can do some searches on TG to find out why people do not like them so much.

Start with the search term Trail Mart

It's good to get an entire High Steer setup if you can. That way, you're less likely to have any mistakes in compatability of the arms to the drag-link and tie-rod.

I currently run Marlin's setup and have run All-Pro's in the past. I was quite happy with both.

well, i am going to go againsts the grain again
there is nothing wrong with Trail Gear. they sell great parts. there parts are = to allpro and marlin. so pick what you want. I usualy let my pocketbook do the talking, as my other half is happer with that I still get great products, great customer support and get my parts quick.

just pick what you want.

you will be stoked with the 4x4 labs stuff. And if there are any problems- they are awesome to deal with and will correct it immediately. You will be glad you went with them.

cheers!

The arms are not the same as marlins arms, they may look the same but they are not. Unless they have changed the way they were made, when they first opened i have seen some pics of the pitman arms broke in half. I know they are not the same as marlins, not even made in the same place.
