Track bar suggestions

Great trip, lots of rocks and spaghetti'd track bar. Seems to be a variety of options and could use recommendations.

I use an rte one and it works great... Haven't had a problem with it.... Including an incident of winching into and over a bank against a tire that was locked in place by a transmission in park.... Amazingly didn't damage anything...

But if I were doing it again , I would consider the one rock ware uses as it is bent to stay out of the way.... Though I would have reservations of its strength compared to the rte one.

Second on this...Nova folks who have switched to the offset track bar have not had a single problem with a bent rod afterwards.

I'll have an RTE drag link and track rod for sale soon.
I just ordered some 11/16"-16 RHT and LHT tube adapters and jam nuts from Summit Machine in Utah. I'll be making some steering links from 1.5" OD x .25" wall DOM. Should be damn near indestructible. LMK if you're interested in the RTE.
