      Comments about Rugged Ridge Heavy-Duty Tie Rod/Drag Link Kit:

      had to replace all the tie rod ends, so I decided to upgrade. glad I did, this is a great kit. everything is included. install was easy and directions are good. I did have to adjust the steering stops so that the tie rod would not come in contact with the differential and the steering stabilizer. I have not noticed any adverse affect to the turning radius. I have had no problems negotiating the trails I wheel on.

        Comments about Rugged Ridge Heavy-Duty Tie Rod/Drag Link Kit:

        This is a great heavy duty replacement for your old YJ or wrangler, however just be aware that you will have to buy a thinner steering damper so that it clears the tubing while steering, mounting brackets for the new location on drag link are included
        I wheeled them for a year hard on 35" Super Swamper LTBs with only one tie rod weakened at the end of the season
        I am running a 89 Wrangler 8.5" lifted, shackle reversal, detroit lockers, cammed 4L, many other mods
