Looking for an upgraded Tie rod that will fit behind 15" wheel

All of them i've found say you need a minimum of a 17" wheel to clear. Anyone have a suggestion?n My wheels have 3.5" of backspacing.

That's tough. Synergy will fit some 15's. The older RK tie rod did.

That's pretty much where I got to as well. I'm worried that the Synergy won't fit either.

Look for the original Rock Krawler aluminum HD tie rod. Contact them if need be. Jeremy and the entire squad over there are very helpful

after the stock one looked like spaghetti went this route and never looked back.. Has taken a severe beating and clears fine !

yeah RK HD tie rod that uses the factory drag link ends.

That's what I ran with 3.5" bs 15" rims, close but clears fine.
