ROVERTRACKS or DRAKEN OFF-ROAD

My tie rod is bent now from a recent off-road trip and I need to replace it but want to upgrade to something alot stronger, i have narrowed it down to two, the ROVERTRACKS high clearance tie-rod or the equipe/draken off-road tie-rod? Which one will most likely last me longer and is built for more abuse? any feedback would be great

you might check first if the Equipe is available. Personally I would go with Rovertracks, as they make good products, reasonable prices, USA made. If I lived in Europe, I would probably be "Equipe-d"

I have Kieth's, and I am a bit of a basher and it has fully withstood anything you can throw at it. You won't be disappointed. I have not seen Equip's, but Kieth is local, is well respected here and is in the States. Not even a question for me. I have never found any of his products lacking in the slightest. Go with Rovertracks. If I lived in Europe, I would probably by their stuff, unless Kieth wanted to cut me a deal on freight ! ;-)

I'll jump on the bandwagon!

I've got Rovertracks' rear radius arms, not the tie rod, but Keith's a great guy and his products are top notch.

About 3 weeks ago I was at Keith's and bought a pair of rods (high clearance tie and drag). There was at least 6 more of each on his shelf then. So my guess is he has a set or two left.

Keith Armstrong - Very much enjoyed running Cliff Hanger with you and Jonas. Look forward to running a trail with you again. Sent you an email, but I think I have an old address.

HTH.

Mark

Rover-tracks. All the way. Support your local USA shop.
