    There are a ton of other tie rods out there but here are the specs on the ones mentioned so far. I didn't realize the Synergy bars were different now. Mine is over 3 years old. It has held up to hits just fine but at the time I thought it was kind of silly that I had to run anti-flop washers. And the boots on my version suck.

    Metalcloak: 1.375" dia /.375 wall 4130 chromo/1 ton TRE's $349.00
    Synergy: Same as above $375.00
    Exodus 1.5" dia/.250 wall/1 ton TRE's $250.00

    The one I build isnít a chromo, itís DOM. Pretty standard stuff when it comes to steering linkages and is fine until people compare it to a chromo and the pricing. Some feel like spending the extra money. I use DOM because itís tough and doesnít require heat treating after welding like 4130 does. This is important since I tig weld the bungs into place. I will be putting together some in the future that will be aluminum but Iím not there yet.

    You could look into the Fusion 4x4 2.5 ton tie rod.

    2.5 ton treís 1.75Ē 7075 aluminum

    At $550, itís a little pricy, but it wonít bend. If you hit a rock or hang on it it bends back to straight

    You could look into Ruffstuff 1 ton GM tie rod. Im happy with mine and it has taken quite a few good hits. They offer it assembled for $190 or as a weld yourself kit for $130. I bought the kit. It's 1.5" x .250 DOM

    This is exactly what Iím building them from. In fact, I used to buy my DOM locally and it was marked India. This last round I couldnít find any so I ordered the DOM from RuffStuff and it was marked USA.

    I was definitely very pleasantly surprised. I don't know for sure that it is always USA steel though as they don't advertise it as such. I'm thinking they could possibly have a couple venders for steel.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
