If it wasn't for Bobby Long and Marlin we'd all be driving Jeeps.

X5 for Bobby's. If you have a problem you call and he or Tina answer. They'll fix you up in a heartbeat. Try that in China!

Durty 30's (bell) break at ~550ft-lbs. Good enough for 37's-38's.
Longs (shaft) break at 650 ft-lbs. Good enough for 40's.

Your FToy is light enough to run 40's. Get the Longs and never worry about another upgrade, ever.





...and x6: Bobby and Tina are awesome people who have done a ton for the Toyota-wheeler. Continue to invest in their products, and they'll continue to invest in ways to make their products better--and bring great new products to the market.

I've been running longs for years, great product, great service. I have not yet run the dirty thirtys, but I have lots of friends that do. They all run them with 39" red lable krawlers, no problems. I think either place you go you will get a awesome product and get great service. Neither company has ever let me down and trail gear has always stood behind there products. The people that gripe about China are stupid we all drive trucks from Japan.

I have been running my dirtys for about 1.5 years no problems, sticky tires and allot of extra weight in the front with water. before that i was using longs for about the same amount of time same combo in the rig took them out cause they were making so much noise. they were not broken yet but i could tell something was messed up wth them.
there was no warranty with them unless they were (broken) so onto the shelf they went and decided to try the dirtys out.have seen lots of longs blow up and other birfs and didnt want to screw up a bunch of other parts, im super happy with the dirty30's..

Bobby didn't tell you to send them in for warrantee inspection/warrantee rebuild?

nope could send them in for them to rebuild them for a fee, but if they were not broken to the eye then no. one day i will rebuild them myself and flog them off. both are good products but i know tg will warranty the dirtys if they were doing the same symptoms as my longs..

i have had 4 sets of chromo longfields since his first run of 27 spliners. all of them were rebuilt at different times after i ran them and it never was a problem or charge to call ask them to be rebuilt. which is what i would do before every KOH or once a year before WEROCK comps started.

I think i know the noise you are refering to, and if im right the star inside the bell has a hair line crack thats hard to see. i would still by them in the shape there in if you offerd a fare price.

I did the exact same thing the longs were clicking and poping like crazy when i sold my axles and had 1 broken. I ended up buying dirty 30s and broke 3 of those before I figured out you cant over turn them now there rock solid tho and quiet.

Im running a custom set of longfield inners that are 5 inches over stock each. wondering if that will allow more twist before breaking or vice versa. Ive been througha few rebuilds with longfield before. Usually its $40 a piece, its always another parts fault. Ive had several trunion bearings take them out. stock and marlin upgrade. trail gear trunion bearing eliminator kit is product of the century!!!
