high steer

i've done some searching and can't find much as far as a comparison between the different brands. mainly, i'm looking at trail gear vs all-pro. all pro says it has fj80 rod ends, trail gear doesn't list what there's are. both run .25" tube. All-pro's arms look a little beefier at a glance but its hard to know from pictures. is the all-pro kit worth the extra $$?

If I recall, the TG arms also use the 80 ends; I recall seeing something about that on their site a while back. It's all about the same and I can't think of an specific stories of failure between any of the major brands (Marlin, TG, AllPro etc...)

I think the main difference is the pin size going into the arms. Trail gear uses a 3/4" diameter, while the marlin (and I'm sure ap does too) uses a 1" diameter pin.

As far as the other differences, side from metal, they're identical. I know trail gear uses cast, I think marlin and ap are billet

Allpro arms are forged.

Also, here's a good comparison of the tie rod ends..

I got the Marlin billet then I upgraded to the larger Marlin trunion bearings. Worth the money.
