    Got the Tie Rod on last night... Thanks Jerry for responding to my texts at 9:00pm and Speedy for letting me borrow the Reamer....

    I reamed the hole slowly until I saw fresh metal all the way through... and 1/8Ē of thread was left below the top of the knuckle. But there was still a very slight amount of play before tightening. I torqued the nuts to about 63lbs and it seams to be ok....

    Bubba, is a little bit of play prior to tightening normal?

    Finally some progress . I wouldn't expect it to have no play until you tightened it. The tie rod ends need to get pulled into alignment with the tapered hole, doubt you could line it up perfect by hand.

    This tie rod is incredibly sweet! I painted my drag link red and after my last trail I found red paint marks on the tie rod! The best part? TR is straight!

    Thanks for a great product!

    I have been on 15 trails since I put mine on. I have rock rash all over it, but it is still straight and true.

    Can't ask for anything more.

    Exactly! Although the most recent was the roughest, Iíve been on three since install. Itís so nice not to have to pull it and throw it in a press, hoping I can straighten it out like the OE TR!

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.
