Longer shocks than stock and that track bar will get over extended. Do people do it all the time? Yes. Is it safe? No. Watched a guy pop the rod end out of the track bar on a pretty easy obstacle. Just trying to look out for you. You can see in that picture your track bar is already past the stock location angle and looks pretty crooked if you ask me.

04moneypit I know dude, I'm just playing along, but I do know that stuff needs to be changed, but I got a deal on the tie rod I couldn't pass up.

1BLKJP Pit,

Man, we aren't trying to just rain on your parade. We are just pointing out somethings that could become unsafe for you in the picture. One major issue of over flexing your rig while disco'd can be ripping off the trac-bar mounts and then you are screwed on the trail.

I wouldn't bash your discos. I just hope you don't use them. Allowing your axle to articulate past the operating angle of the track bar is a big no no in my book. That is a very important part of the safety to you and others. More important, in my opinion, than an upgraded rusty's tie rod

I would be surprised if rusty's use .500 walled tubing for his tie rod. Are you sure the tubing is that thick or just the weld in insert he used at the end??

And the use of a drop pitman arm without a drop trac-bar bracket.

04moneypit Sorry we can't all own non-running rock buggies (haha), don't worry, it's on my list, one thing at a time now. But if I keep going at this rate, my jeep will be like yours if I don't look out.

erickpl Yep, sure can.

Got it from a ZJ Grand Cherokee with the V8. Other ZJ's w/o the V8 have the same setup as the TJ, so the TR from the ZJ's in beefier.

Just installed one this weekend. Got it complete and brand new from AZ, complete with new TRE's for the driver side for $79.00. The other TRE is attached to the rod itself.

MR.CLIFFORD what are these tie rods you keep talking about. I don't have those on my jeep
01-31-2007 10:30 PM
1BLKJP Yeah, that's good stuff. My Rockkrawler 1 1/2" solid tie rod is one of the beefiest things I've ever put on my rig.

Scout Cool! I remember when my Big Daddy tie rod came in the mail. I thought it was made out of lead!

Something I'm impressed with

So I got rusty's offroad tie rod the other day, and man this thing is beefy, and complete for less than a hundred bones on sale, I had to give it some press.
