For what you use it for I'd just do the ends, pretty easy.

You may need to replace the whole rod depending on which end it is. The stock tie rod has an integral TRE on the pass. side IIRC.

That is correct (I checked mine out on Sunday evening).

Well, for the money I went with THIS KIT from Ruff Stuff, but I also already had crossover steering with a separate draglink. If you're staying with stock sizes etc. I'd recommend using Moog joints.

For about $300 shipped to my door I am very happy with my Rusty's offroad kit. It is beefier tubing plus all 4 tre's are replaceable with over the counter parts.
