    Sorry if I bump this topic again but since you're talking about hd tie rod I think it's better to post here than create a new topic.

    I was looking for a tie rod upgrade for my '08 CRD JK since It's the fifth time I bent it and I discovred this product that I never heard about it (maybe you already know about that, but here in Italy no one know who Off Road Only is):
    ORO Tru-Turn Tie Rod upgrade kit for JK ( link ).
    I've read about it and it seems good ( but what doesn't seem good by only reading about it? ) and it would solve both my problem: improve my tie rod and improve my steering since it's a little bit "loose" and the wheel when you turn it's softer than years ago ( the balljoint on the tie rod are done for sure ).

    I tried to look online but it's hard to find picture of the install, I've found some topic in forums but they're all old and the image disappeared (or blocked by photobucket) so I don't even know how it looks mounted on the JK, how it really raise the tie rod ( since I've to deal with the relocation of the steering stabilizer, which I've made a custom one when I was building my frond D44 housing so I don't even know if it would work)...And also, no one talks too much about this product so I'm a little bit worried about buying this product without know the real feedback about it.

    What do you think about it?

    Looks hokey to me personally. And you have to adjust the steering stops. I dunno about you but my Jeep already turns like a bus. Why are you considering this over some of the other options available?

    I like the stuff they make and I happened to be looking at this yesterday. There’s installation instructions on the website and it’s pretty straight forward.

    I just installed the Yeti tie rod and it is amazingly beefy and held up to some serious desert washboard abuse as well as climbing big boulders with my 37" tires. I used to bend my old tie rod during every trip and I don't believe it's possible to bend this thing without running it directly into a rock at high speed.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
