After searching every 4x4 site on the net these seemed to be the strongest and cheapest. Installation was easy and the instructions were simple. Been out once so far and they held up great!

Heavy duty Dom tubing, we will have to see how long the tie rods ends last however

An entire upgrade for the cost of new Tie Rod Ends.

First let me say my experience isn't the average and it was my first time installing any kind of tie rods or drag links. Overall the kit is very nice. It is a major upgrade over stock for just the price of replacement tierod ends. I had some problems with installation but it was due to modifications on my Jeep. I have a 4" lift and a drop pitman arm. Everything was perfect beofre with the stock setup but as soon as I put this kit on I had some problems. The drag link was too low with my drop pitman arm and the lock nuts would rub on the tie rod and loosen themselves up. I had to order a stock pitman arm to put back on which isn't good because of the added bumpsteer. The instructions also reccomend a dropped pitman arm with a lift over 2". But they knew of the problems with the links rubbing together. It made me a little angry. I wouldn't hesitate to buy this product again though. The look and the beffy tie rods make it worth it.

Great Kit, easy to install, easy to adjust the alignment also. I really liked the extra jam nuts provided in the kit. I use to run a similar setup on my XJ with only one jam nut per tierod and I was always having to readjust the alignment.

On a '92 YJ w/3.5" of lift.

Straight forward install, only problem was some clearance issues with an aftermarket JKS trac-bar. This may have been a non-issue with a drop pitman or the stock bar, but had to remove the spacer (grind it) off of the lower bar mount to move the trac-bar back away from the drag link to allow full lock turning to the right. Also had to be careful as to the placement of the lock nuts on the drag link lower end, they look like they may hit the tie rod if the flats are not lined up, but again, this would only be at full lock of the steering and maybe not an issue with a dropped pitman arm.

Just what i tought it would be.

Beefy metal with all hardware and easy installation. you need a tie rod pickle fork or puller and you can have this on in no time. tightened up the steering nicely and now I need to go beat it up on the trail ;-)
