Anyone know about rock krawler parts?

I bent my tie rod at redbird. I want to get the heavy duty rock crawler tie rod because its only 90.00. Anyone know anything about this company? I have heard of them but don't know much about them.

From what I've read throughout forum, a lot of the JK guys are running Rock Krawler stuff.

I've heard good things about Rock Krawler in general. Nothing specific regarding their tie rods, but I'm sure they're built with quality in mind as the rest of their equipment seems to be......

A very good buddy of mine runs rock Krawler and I asked him the same question when I was out in AZ wheeling. He runs the tie rod/draglink setup they offer. When I asked him he said if your only going to wheel the jeep then rock krawler is the way to go. IF your going to daily drive the jeep Currie is the way to go. IF you do not upgrade your draglink YOU will have issues. Instead of your tie rod bending (kind of like it should) you will start bending your draglink since it is that much weaker then the new tie rod. You really should upgrade both.

Another option is the Tie Rod upgrade from a V8 ZJ, typically 98 Grand Cherokee w/ 5.2L V8.

Check out Stu-Olsens site and has a complete write-up for it.

How bad did you bend it?! IF you can bang it back then toss a high lift jack handle over the tie rod to make sure it doesn't break and you can drive it wheel it with the jack handle over it.
