There is no situation where I would pay to have an OEM tie rod installed on our JKU. It is too weak and too expensive.
There are a number of good aftermarket steel options. But an aluminum one would be what I would go with. It is the better option and comparable in cost to a quality steel tie rod.

Barnes 4x4 has a 1 ton aluminum tie rod for $300. That is probably less than you would pay for a complete OEM tie rod. And it is a better tie rod.
It is also comparable cost wise to an aftermarket upgrade steel tie rod, but aluminum is the better tie rod option. I can’t see paying as much or more for a steel tie rod when you can get an aluminum one for that.
