Which one is needed for the Ultrex? I have the bar thing that came on it and it's useless...

Is it useless because the TM keeps bouncing on the deck?

You would use the same one that fits the Fortrex as they the same style mount.

That and it keeps coming undone (the big nut that supposed to keep it secure)...

I don't have an Ultrex yet (coming soon!) but from watching videos of it being installed I would think you could get it adjusted, then maybe drilling through it to put a cotter pin or bolt through it?

Just check the clearance between the bottom of the Ultrex and the top of your deck.

The Fortrex Troll Tamer mount says it is for 5-8".

I saw a thread where some guys bought the longer ones and used the mount from the Ultrex and then mounted the Troll Tamer bottom mount on your deck.

My stock ultrex stabilizer bar keeps coming unscrewed too. Drives me nuts. I even tried to loctite it.

Interesting. I noticed my Ultrex bracket was getting a bit loose so I adjusted the TM saver quite a bit and haven’t had that top nut back off any. It’s really not on much thread as it is. Try some Loc-tite?
