Just that for $742? :

I could toss on all new wheel bearings, ball joints and axle shafts with it for less.

Could add the cost of the tools to that too. Lol

Yup, that's what happens when your parents insist you drop it at the shop instead of doing it yourself.

All I need in life is my Jeep, my guns, and my wrenches... And maybe some fine women too

I hated that, just lie and take it to a friends house and do it or an abandoned parking lot with a few friends.

They shipped everything unbent, Cut and notched. It ships flat to save cost. $399.00. Bends easy with a cpl clamps and a decent size work bench. Half the small pieces where lost in shipping first go round but one call to Daryl up there and the cut me new ones and shipped them out the next morning.

Cost me an extra $100 in wire, gas, tips and grinding disks.

Very nice

Sometime parents can be ignorant and clueless about things . For example if neither of them have ever changed the oil on there car, they think you're truck would fall apart if you tried to change the brake pads by yourself.

In parts store catalogs, the drag link and pitman arm link are the inner tie rods. They act the same as inner tie rods.

Last time I ordered parts at work they weren't called inner tie rods. That's for rack and pinion steering which is a completely different part not trying to be a dick or anything just saying. I do a lot of jeeps at work and order all of parts there mostly just considered the drag link and tie rod ends. Wouldn't consider them inner ties rods as they are a different style

The pitman link and drag link perform the exact same job as inner tie rods: connecting the steering gear to the outer tie rods via an adjustable constrained-joint linkage. They do it in a different way but it performs the same function. As such, the parts are listed in catalog as inner tie rod ends.

Drag link assemblies are also sometimes called upper tie rods. As a whole, they are tie rods: rods that tie the steering together.

There's a reason, I suppose, that technicians aren't parts guys.
