    I'm assuming this does not come with tie-rod ends, and I would need to buy them separate?

    • Hello, the Rough Country Tie Rod Upgrade Kit (97-06 Wrangler TJ) does not come with tie-rod ends, it uses stock tie rod ends.

      Excellent upgrade

      Can't beat it for the price. My stock one got bent on the trail and this was an obvious replacement. 30 minutes to install and I'm good.

      Great upgrade

      Good upgrade for your TJ. Much more beefier then the stock and worth the money. Took about a hour to install. Can be fine with one person but easier to line up and hold things with two people. Just measured from tie rod end to tie rod end and was a piece of cake from there.

      Rock Solid

      I was surprised just how heavy duty this thing is. It's slightly shorter than the stock tie rod - about 3/4 of an inch, which is why I knocked off one star. But it installation was a breeze and looks great under there.

      Way stronger then I expected

      A direct swap for the stock tie rod. Took only 15 min. I was impressed with how strong strong it is compared to stock. Good black finish as well

      An excellent upgrade from the OEM

      Broke the cheap factory tie rod. This was is twice the thickness and weight. This should be better for those off the trail times.

      Great part! Great price!

      Very strong tie rod and very good price. The stock tie rod is one of the first things to bend when off roading. This is a great upgrade at an affordable price.

      Smart Upgrade

      This is a very affordable upgrade to the flimsy stock tie rod. Still uses factory stock ends to save money and they are not the primary issue anyway. Very easy install. This and a tie rod flip kit will save you much heartache.
