    Question Tie rod/TRE that fit 15" wheels?

    I'm looking for a tie rod that will fit my 15" 3.75" backspaced Level 8 Tracker Pro wheels. From reading other threads, it looks like Synergy is my best bet. I'd prefer something cheaper and aluminum though. What are my options? The StinkyFab one looks cool and cheap ($230)

    Cheap and good don’t go together. Just get a factory one if you want cheap.

    agree with this. if you ever bend the factory, you can usually find a take off for a few bucks or even free.

    That wasn't the point I was trying to make. Who wouldn't want to pay less? I'll pay premium as long as it's not weak as stock. My factory one is super bent. Anyone know of any aftermarket options that fit 15" wheels?

    I am not sure if it fits with 15s, but I was very happy with my synergy tie rod, and it went to a good friend when I traded my jeep in. Very beefy and worth the price, whatever that was.

    That looks like my best bet. Their website says 16" wheels fit so maybe I can take the chance.

    Clearly you won’t pay extra since you bought 15” wheels. I guess I dont wheel since I still run a factory one after 6 years.

    If anyone is gonna fuck up a factory one it’s Overlander But he has a point. Cheap and strong don’t go together and as mentioned above a factory one can be had for next to nothing, which is essentially what you hinted at in your first post.

    FWIW, a buddy of mine runs 15” wheels and a factory TR. He bends it and straightens it out with a Harbor Freight press a few times then finds a free or next to free one on Craigslist nearby. I’d say he gets about 18 months out of his and he drives like a jackass off-road.

    Damn, I saved for a while to afford these wheels. Sorry I don't like load range E tires as my only option.

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.
