High steer build..?

I'm finally getting around to building my high steer ...
Should I go for Heims or just run the traditional one ton rod ends...?

I'm thinking heims ...if so any suggestions no a particular one and where to get them from?

Thanx in advance ...

Rod ends and heims are the same thing, but I'm assuming you mean 1 ton tie rod ends (TRE's). It depends on the Jeeps usage and your type of driving. TRE's are best for a daily driver and vehicle that sees mud. Heims are more maintenance but they are good for trail vehicles and higher angles. You will need to decide based on your intended usage.

Thanx for ur input ..I really appreciate it...
Yeah...I'm meaning TREs ....I'm running one ton steering now just not high steer ..and I have no issues with it....I play hard with it on the rocks once if not twice a week...so it gets a lot of use...it is street legal but I don't really drive it much more then to trail head these days...not sure what I'm gonna do yet but I'd like to get it done in the next couple of evenings...
thanx
