Beef up your ride with Rugged Ridge steering components. This is a bolt-on solution for preventing bent tie rods from wheeling with larger tires. The tubes are 1-1/4" diameter steel that is cold rolled, pierced, and drawn through dies to produce a 1/4" wall thickness. This is true DOM tubing with NO seams OR welds to fail. Heavy duty 7/8" rod ends feature standard tapered ends to fit stock knuckle applications. You get one ton strength without any modifications to your steering knuckles.

great upgrade

Easy install, got rid of the bump steer I was getting with stock y-link. Holds up to abuse much better. I did use one of the supplied washers to take care of dead spot in steering. 2002 tj 4" lift 35"

I don't know what to think of this product.

i bought a jeep that was already lifted and had to figure out what mods it had done to it. i get the jeep home and after a week of having it i get wobbling. so i did some research and found my tie rod ends may be the issue. i look at them, and all of the boots were blown out. so i replaced them with rugged ridge tie rod ends and replaced my stabilizer. fixed the problem for about a day. i get wobbling again. i look at the boot on the pitman arm and its blown out already! i put a new one on and 2 days later that one blew out. this product claims to prevent wobble of larger tires but doesn't say how large. i'm runnin wide 33" tires so i'm not sure if i just need a dual stabilizer or if these tierod ends cant hold up to my tires.
