I have a bent drag link and have started looking into getting an HD replacement. RTE and Rover Tracks is on the top of my list, but are there other places I should look at too? What are the pros and cons to look for when buying these parts. Is this something Cerrone's usually has on hand or should I plan to have it shipped? Thanks everyone.

Cool, thanks for the input Jarrell. I'll give the Cerrone's crew a call tomorrow and see what their opinions are.

Not yet. Still have the Stock one.

I'm debating should I go with RT,RTE or Equipe.

RT has the Panhard rod that goes with the Diff Guards.

Chances are I'm going to go with the RT Panhard Rod.:)

Right on. After my current repairs are complete I'm going to track down a QT Services front diff guard for a Defender TD5. It fits the D2 perfectly without the need to weld those tabs for a true bolt on diff guard.

I decided to go with Rover Tracks for the drag link. Sounds like Keith has a day job and does his manufacturing of Rover parts in the evening, so I'm glad to give him my business. The DL will be made tonight, painted and hopefully shipped to Cerrone's tomorrow. He said something about Frank going out this weekend with some Jeepers :eek:, to which I said it better be to earn a Jeep Recovery Vehicle sticker. :D
