TRE vs HEIM ...

Disscuss




Really though....
Whats the average life of a TRE vs a HEIM?

For Heims ... I've seem folks mention "saftey washers" vs going double shear for mounting..... these seem suspect to me. They might hold the unit together if it comes apart but isn't that still lotsa stress on the bolt?

Is it a bad idea to have a heim on one end of something and a TRE on the other?

Any other relavant info is appreciated as well


Oh and since I wheel in mostly mud & sand, it would kill heims pretty quick right? Well how quick is quick?
