    both are great SS. If you got the cash, I'd say go with TRD. If not URD is an awesome SS. It's what I have, it's cheap and easy to install, well worth the money. Both great products.

    i have no problem with the urd. just get nervous when its in for service or valet and watch how long it takes people to figure out getting it into reverse. i have not noticed the reverse get any easier, but once you get the quick "slap" it left method down, you're golden.

    If you slap it into reverse, it goes much easier. Sounds crazy, but it works.

    You do not push down.

    Towards the driver and forward. The slap methods works best.
