Rk all the way. I have the 3 link long arm. I love it. It performs great. 100% recommend it especially with the new joints. Very happy.

I had teraflex arms prior. Hated them. Every time I went wheeling hard the snap rings popped out. And it wasn't the same joint every time. I had every single one blow out at least twice. I replaced them with rebuild kits and new fle joints. Always blew at least one out after a hard wheeling trip.

RK!!!! better than Teraflex. On the trail we've heard one guys Teraflex LA kit he was running the joints got really squeaky we thought a bearing or something was going out or it might be the AZ dirt..go RK and never look back.

On a side note you could always go Rough Country's Long Arm kit and have "higher" quality than those two...

RK for real tho..

I'm saving up for a RK but I've heard from a few people that their link bars are not the strongest & like to bend...not sure how valid that statement is or if somebody heard it from somebody who heard it from somebody & the story has been twisted &/or exaggerated along the way. either way I'm a believer in the old adage "you get what you pay for" & i'm more than willing to spend extra money for a superior product & I believe RK is a superior product.

Haha no sir NascarRubicon, the day they become as good as RK, Teraflex, rubicon...I'll put a hemi in the wife's Lexus...

Putting a RC on a jeep no, wouldn't recommend them.that's like saying that "extra" chrome shit gives someone more flex...

Where did you hear that crap? RK has a lifetime warranty on hard parts.


Also in terms of long arms, Teraflex really isn't a true long arm since their rear uppers are only 1" longer than the stock arm. This causes major binding...

The rk control arms are very beefy IMO
