Beef up your ride with Rugged Ridge steering components. This is a bolt-on solution for preventing bent tie rods from wheeling with larger tires. The tubes are 1-1/4 inch OD steel that is cold rolled, pierced, and drawn through dies to produce a 1/4 in. wall thickness. This is true DOM tubing with NO seams OR welds to fail. Heavy duty 7/8 inch rod ends feature standard tapered ends to fit stock knuckle applications. You get one ton strength without any modifications to your steering knuckles. Will not work with Right Hand Drive vehicles. Will not work with factory Rubicon wheels or wheels with a flat style face. Not recommended for vehicles with over 4 inch of lift. Not compatible with smaller OEM steel wheels or wheels with deep backspacing. Not recommended for vehicles with under 2 inch of suspension lift.
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.
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
