    Thanks to you all for your opinions and recommendations.
    I agree, HD Currie is probably the best solution.

    Btw, I just spoke to my friend, an experienced owner of 4x4 shop in the Czech Republic (where I am originally from), who built trucks for my offroad racing (many years ago) and he told me that anyone who welds on a tie rod should be immediately executed :-)

    Lol You used to race professional and you can't even check your tie rod?

    I am a software developer, not a Jeep mechanic... But after offroading for almost 25 years I am able to find most problems. But how can you recognize a weld which can brake soon? O.K., maybe I could use X-Ray, but I do not have one available for my Jeep inspections :-)
    But I would be happy if you could explain to me how I can predict which welds may crack soon.

    Just see what the shop says. They will probably say no especially after 3.5 years. And go ahead and get you a new tie rod. I have to get a new tie rod myself cause I bent mine. I'm thinking about trying the ruff stuff tie rod but I'm a little conferenced about it since I haven't heard much about them on this forum. I just can't afford the Currie $700 one myself

    Well I know that one of the Currie tie rods is around $350 and another super beefy one is $700.

    Idk which one most people here run. Anyone chime in?

    Currie recently dropped the price. I believe it's around 400 now.

    I run the larger of the two, the $700 one and have been happy. I did recently have to replace one of the ends after bending it. I was able to check out the new lower priced tie rod when picking up the part and it looks solid.

    Are you talking about the $700 dropped to $400? That's pretty good
