There have been many long, heated debates about the various rockers, especially from the people who sell them.

The vast majority of the Dakota R/T Club members are using either Crower or Harland-Sharp Rockers.

The Harland-Sharps are available in adjustable or non-adjustable models - the non-adjustables is what made them popular - for a considerable amount less than the other brands, you get a simple set of rockers that are much easier to install. The downside of the n-a's is you shouldn't use them if you're ever going to switch to heads/cam because you can't adjust the lash to compensate for different pushrods or tuning. Durability has been questioned by some Crower owners but I've never heard of a set of HS's fail yet and they've now been around for over a year.

Crowers are being used in many motors, and offer lash adjustment for fine-tuning with various pushrod tolerances or swaps. Guideplates are required above 5500rpm which cost extra. These have been around longer so some people have 2-3 years and 50k+ miles of use on them.

You may want to check out V8performance.com as well. I think they have Crowers cheaper than Sam, no offense.

Unless Sam raced through and changed his prices between our posts, Sam's either equal to or $5 cheaper than Ryan. Both are good sites to purchase them from.

Thats good to know. I have dealt with Sam in the past, and he seems on top of his game. I am shopping for these right now, must need them to make truck go faster.
