Ditto. 33x12.50's w/ V8 ZJ tie rod (or any beefier tie rod) and stock drag link just shifts the weak link to the drag link. I now carry two spare complete steering setups just in case. Incidentally I have had the ZJ tie rod for 3 years and it has seen 33's and 35's and still works great. When I get done with some other crap I will upgrade to Currie's steering.
