Beef up your ride with this Rugged Ridge Heavy Duty Tie Rod & Drag Link Kit. This is a bolt-on solution for preventing bent tie rods from wheeling with larger tires. The tubes are 1-1/4" ID 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.

Heavy duty

Fit the 74 CJ5 perfectly. Of course the customer service is always a plus.

Huge upgrade over stock on a 79 CJ7 in function and durability - massive size yet still fits perfectly. Better adjustability than stock as well. Keep in mind you may need larger u-bolts for your steering dampener/shock mount - I needed larger ones for use with a BDS kit.

Very nice. If you are looking at up grading your drag link ans steering link this is the way to good. Very heavy built and look at that price, you can't beat it for what you are getting. Pot on Rugged Ridge and Morris always have great service.
