    I have two of these, just the previous version. One is on 24/7 duty in my 71 CJ5 and the other is on my truck since it got booted out of the shop to the driveway.

    They work flawlessly.

    Where does everyone get their inner TREs? OEM is outrageously expensive (same as a new rack!), so I’m looking for the best aftermarket solution, like 555s for instance.

    :rofl::rofl::rofl:

    Collecting snow because the cheap ass cover disintegrated after two years. And when I tried to start it last weekend it wasn’t having it. Hasn’t moved under its own power in almost a year, probably :rolleyes:

    But, you know, sentimental shit and whatnot…

    I bought some proforged ones last time, but theres lots of brands for those, I'd say most any of them are fine for everyday use.

    Moog is pretty cheap right now

    Proforged apparently was bought by Holley... but still make em too, mine are doing okay so far

    Check my post again, 555 is always a safe choice for steering bits

    I like CTR, my 96 camry had its original ctr tie rods on at 250k, new ford's use them too

    They're like 30 bucks for our trucks

    I’ve heard some people swear Moog parts are more durable than OEM for off-roading (LBJs especially), but idk if that’s true.

    I'd take it all with a grain of salt, its subjective testing. But regardless of whether it is better than OEM or not, it's a pretty good review to not fail spectacularly when tested.

    BMWs seem to die from transmission and fuel delivery problems around here. Owners give up and they wind up in Junkyards.

    Fuel delivery is a big issue on the direct injection ones. But the newer 6, 7, and 8 speed transmissions are quite excellent to be quite honest and they're very durable.

    I’ve heard the older BMWs were pretty reliable, like from the 80d and early 90s. They’ve also made some great engines like the M57 and M10. Their V8s and V10s seem to have poor reliability though.

    I almost bought one of these new. I sure loved the way it performed. But I couldn't get one with A/C and the dealer-installed air sucked and I was tired of driving a car without AC. I had heard the model was being discontinued and the dealer was far away.

    I still haven't gotten to test a ZF8. I've heard many good things.
