Tie rod replacement?

Bent the tie rod at callalantee this weekend, went to remove it and can not get the passenger side to unthread. there are dents in that side of the tie rod and i am wondering if they were hydraulicly crimped on. does anybody know?

The end cannot be removed on the crimped side. Might want to look into a Poly Performance tie-rod. They are truly strong and fully adjustable. I have a stock unit for sale, but it is bent up a little bit and one of the seals has been ripped.

Poly Performance, I think, also makes a high steer kit. Rubicon Express does as well.

Just looked at their website. Hopefully the dodge dealer will take back the one I just ordered. Thanks for the help.
