JK stock pitman tre on an 89 HPD60 drag link

Does anybody know if the Stock pitman tre will work on an 89 HPD60 drag link?
Looking at the diameters as well as the threads, they look to be the same... Tomorrow I'll measure with the dial calipers and a thread pitch gauge. It would be nice for them to mingle with one another

If it doesn't... try putting the D60 TRE into the JK's pitman arm.
I'm running a 1-ton Teraflex TRE on the stock JK pitman arm. Although it does not fit as deep into the pitman as the stock TRE did... the taper matches and the Tera TRE has plenty of thread to still get the castle nut and cotter pin installed safely.

You may also want to consider just building your own drag link out of 1.5x.25 DOM. Threaded inserts are cheap and easy to burn in. And you can pick the TRE's of your choice.

Thanks for the info I put the D60 tre in the stock pitman and the begining of the taper sits above the top portion of the pitman. I did find a few at advance that look like they'll work (I just have to bring the pitman into the store and check while writing down part numbers). Just looking at the two tre's the Stock tre is definitely shorter and thicker than what's on my D60 link. My goal is to get these axles under the Jeep ASAP using what I have... I looked at ruff stuff and seen that they have kits for sale... Can't do any fabricating until I purchase another welder. Thieves broke into my garage and stole my new 37" MT's.... my welder, my dewalt tools, my construction tools 5 disc cd player, amplifier and misc. stuff. I hate thieves!!!!

Thieves should have their hands cut off.
Good Luck!
