For what?? TJ? YJ?

If for a TJ - I have the RE bar and it's fine. I've been running with it for 3 years now...BUT - I like the Tera design better - you don't have to drill out the frame mount (the RE bar requires you to eliminate part of the tapper, and the heim bolts tend to rock back and forth and dog out the hole). The Tera bar retains the taper and has a much tighter fit. Also - it has an adjustment collar, so you don't have to disco it and reattach to dial in your axle. The RE bar (which I torque tp 210ft/lbs - ugh) has to be removed, adjusted, reconnected.

The Tera trackbar is a POS. It's VERY WEAK. I've seen several of them made into different banana and noodle shapes. The RE one is much stronger. Currie has a nice setup too, along with a better tie rod (the RE tie rod is crap).

That's good to know - thanks for the info. Too bad they don't beef it up - cause I like the other aspects of their design.

BTW, a friend of mine totally bent his RE bar so they're not indestructable...though it is the first I've heard of one bending. I certainly put mine through it's paces, and it's held up fine.
