Rear Trailing Arms

I am looking for opinions on who's bent rear trailing arms are the best. I have the Rovertym 2" springs, which is closer to 2.5" to 3" of lift. I need to take care of the significant bushing bind on the trailing arms.

Just curious about what you guys think.

Joe

I personally like Rovertym's, I haven't tried them yet, but should be ordering them here in a few weeks. They look the sturdiest IMO.
Rovertracks look pretty beefy too, but from the pic on their website, it doesn't look like they're bent which is one feature I prefer.

The Rovertracks trailing arm does have a bend to compensate for a lift. I just ordered a pair.

From the website:

We place a bend in the trailing arm behind the leading edge of the tire to keep them out of the rocks and help keep the arm in line with the frame bushing when you lift your truck

good to know, thanks!

Does anyone happen to have a pic of them or have them installed?

Eric Siepmann has them installed on his truck, which I've seen. They're beefy. You could PM him for a photo.

I have a set of the RoverTracks, they are very beefy. They are bent closer to the axle side, just installing them so haven't used them yet, but one thing to also do is have them made longer to compensate for the lift. Keith can tell you how long to get them based on your lift.

I have been running the rovertracks for about a year and I would highly recommend them. I rather abuse the underside of my truck since I like running hard trails on 33"'s, so mine have taken a beating and held up admirably. Which is why I got them. You can see serious rock smacks without much ado. I would get them again, if I needed to--which I don't.
