Alot of vehicles came from the factory like this. Using all tie rod ends you normally have a dead spot in your steering. Which is why I used a heim for the connection of the draglink and tie rod. There is no dead spot. I talked with ruff stuff specialties at the offroad expo and they are coming out with a different way to mount it. Its still a few months out, but looks kinda like an inverted T tie rod but uses heims.

Just a big slow fat one.

The tires are on the heavy side but they are as tough as you can get in a radial tire on the rocks.
Great tire.

A lot of time after guys get they're shocks out boarded they over extend the driveshaft and tear junk up...I've gone in and clearanced my yokes at both ends of my DS to allow for a little more flex. Works good.
