Isn't that the same tie-rod that was featured in a "Stupid tricks and how not to do things" kind of article in 4Wheel Drive & Sport Utility last year? If I were him I'd be too embarassed to ever show that thing in public, let alone try to sell it on eBay.

someone needs to buy it and throw it away before someone gets killed with it.

what a peice of garbage - maybe he should relabel it as:
'a pre-pretzeled tie-rod' the bad thing is some moron out there
will actually buy it...and then go around saying jeeps are crap
after he bends it on the trail (much to the amusement of his fellow
trail riders).

for all of those like me too lazy to click on a link, this the the steering link in question.

i wouldnt be worried bout it bending on the trail, id be worried bout a loud snap when you trying to avoid slamming into the fool that just swerved infront of you on the interstate. ever try to drive a car when the steering wheel doesnt work?
