Who has the best deal on the Rockkrawler tie rod?

I bent my stocker and need to get it replaced ASAP. It uses the stock ends right? Will it fit with 15" wheels with 3.75 BS?

Call Marcus at River City Offroad and tell him your deal. I'm sure he can lead you in the right direction.

I dont think it uses the stock ends from the tie rod, it uses the stock ends from the drag link, so you will have to buy 2 new tie rod ends any way.

Those of you that think you know everything really annoy those of us that do!

Correct. We would also be more than willing to help get this fixed for you. RK has a great Tie Rod but we also carry others. We could go over them and see which one best fits your needs. Let us know how we can help!

I am still debating. I just spent $5k on tires, gears, and a locker then go out and break my steering stabilizer and bend the tie rod lol. I can go stock for both for just over a $100 and know it all fits. But I cant bring myself to replace with stock parts lol.

I would order what upgrade I need on the cheap side but I need to know if it will fit with 15x8 rims with 3.75 BS and 35x12.5's

I'm in a similar boat as you. I'm thinking about just getting a whole upgraded steering kit for the time being to get me by until I do a major upgrade. The stock stuff dont take abuse very well, but its cheap to replace. The Jeep dealer sells steering parts cheaper than I can buy the stuff and I own an auto parts store. I'm finding this to be a common place anymore in the business. No longer are the dealers able to rape and pillage and they are becoming reasonable on selling parts if you find the right one.

You could also talk to this guy ^^^^ IMO theres is much nice than the RK because you dont have to bust the TRE loose from the knuckle every time to adjust toe. And this is coming from a guy that as owned both.

My thought exactly. The RK seems the cheapest option. If you adjust your toe yourself it's not an issue. But a lot of places won't do it. I would be doing the work myself.

So this is coming from a guy that owns an alignment shop. I like my shit right. My main problem with the RK TRE tube is that to adjust toe it needs to be a full rotation of a TRE when an adjustment is made. Unlike polys where it adjusts like the OEM. For me, one full rotation on the RK TRE equaled a little over 1/4 of movement toed in/out... so that wasn't acceptable for me. To others, maybe, just not me. And as far as making adjustment often, its all depends on how you wheel. After a hard weekend of wheeling up here in the sierras, beating up your tube, you'd be surprised on how far the toe can be off. But where I wheel its nothing but big rocks and my tie rod tube takes a beating.
