    Comments about Rugged Ridge Heavy-Duty Tie Rod/Drag Link Kit:

    Tierod failed at connection to ball joint. Luckily I was in a parking lot and only manuvering to park.

    I also agree with the other reviewer in there is a lot of slop and the rolling "that is considered normal" is disturbing I am no engineer but I think the slop and rolling contributed to the failure.

    Mostly used on paved and mild forest roads. A few trips on the beach, never any extream wheeling.

    Comments about Rugged Ridge Heavy-Duty Tie Rod/Drag Link Kit:

    This was an o.k set up for 31s but 33s bend and twist it hard. 35s break the TRE on the road, for the same money you can get an over the knuckle 1 ton joint set up. Live and learn
