building my own tie rod

Had another mishap with my tie rod and its starting to look pretty shitty.

i run 15s and cant get the Ruff Stuff TREs to clear the rims but i think the factory links stick out far enough that i could reuse them with a length of dom in between.

anyone know if the factory TREs are left and right threaded if so i need jam nuts and weld in bungs any one know the sizes of these?

I build tie rods for my buggy. Since it is nearly all custom. My suggestion is get a tread gauge if you want to reuse the ends and use a local industrial hardware. Me I use Mc Fadden Dale just to give you a idea. The possibilities are endless on how you want to make the connection.

Not sure if you noticed yet, WF is reorganizing. Sub forums under each model for tech/pics/build and general.
Too much riff raf in JK tech.
