The issue I have with the Crown setup and the ZJ swap is the additional adjustment sleeve added at the driver's side knuckle, and the fact that the TRE at the drag link is part of the tie rod itself. With the IRO (or another HD tie rod setup) the tie rod ends are individually replaceable - the stockers can be carried as spares and swapped in if needed. You could do this with the other setup, if you wanted to carry the stock tie rod as well, I suppose.

I am trying to get away from those adjuster sleeves. I read about them stripping out on people and needing to be replaced. It looks like a good set up, but I'd rather have the adjustment coming from the ends.

This is a good call. I carry a spare one on the trail because I haven't rid myself of the upper one yet.

Yeppers, I've seen like oh, none of them stripped out in the rocks. But if you want to spend another $200 on a HD set up like Currie makes, by all means go for it! Put the adjusters up and out of the way, use a tie rod flip and do your own alignments and see how long it takes for those adjusters to strip. Just my $0.02

I'm not considering the Currie set-up as it is pricey and WAY more than I need. Obviously the set-up you are running works for you smokinlib1. I was simply stating info I read on the forum. I'm glad to hear you like your set-up. I think I'll be happy with the IRO set-up
