Another dumb 15 wheel Tie Rod guy question

Look, I realize it's not smart to run 15's but rather than bash my mistake I'd appreciate a little help on my Tie Rod issue. I've read threads here and the variations in setups don't match my rig, or the topic goes another route and inconclusive.

Honestly I could give a rat's if the JK has huge beefed up Rod Ends. I'm just looking for slightly better than stock. If that's not possible than a bigger Tie Rod on stock Ends would be it. Regardless I need a replacement ASAP and buying 4 larger tire/wheel combos along with Tie Rod is out of the question right now. I need to work the current problem at hand and I'd appreciate any help or knowledge you can give.

Crager Soft 8 15x10 on 35's. At full pitch towards Jeep front the factory Tie Rod Ends are approximately 9.5mm from inside of wheel.

You can get the Rock Krawler tie rod and replace the ends with Moog ends or factory drag link ends. It'll clear. I'm running the older RK tie rod that came with factory drag link ends with 15" Level8 Tracker wheels 3.75" backspace.

What's your wheel backspacing?

4 inches and I've got 5mm spacer/hub ring combos to keep the darn thing from vibrating. So I'd estimate they're 4¼ safe. I came across the RC bar info but I'm a little new at the game. What Moog ends would I need and don't they have to be welded or something?

You'd still probably want to check with RK.

Yeah they already said it wouldn't work how it ships. Synergy, MetalCloak, CarolinaMM, TeraFlex, and some others I'm prob missing all replied stating it wouldn't work. That's why I wrote this thread.
