Anybody running Icon's Delta Joints? I've had my TC Uni-balls on for about 7 years or so now. I'm trying to decide whether to get new uni-balls or go to Delta joints. Price is comparable but thinking Delta joints might last longer????

with that product intro in 2017, I haven't seen anything major to say those delta joints fail earlier.. so with the price point being on par with uni-ball -- I'd say you are safe to proceed.

might be helpful reading:

some product hype here:

don't forget the delta joint is also available for other makes (Chevy/Ford) so be sure to prowl those owner forums as well.

I would caution.. since Icon is the only supplier of these now you are "vendor locked in".

Also in my mind Icon will always be Donahoe racing .... and well that owner/guy was way creepy.

There's a guy on the mud forum who has about 2 years on his. I'll probably go this route and maybe buy from SDHQ. Wonder if SDHQ gives a discount on install if buying the parts from them? Although it seems fairly easy so I'll probably press them out and in myself.
