Yes, it uses the factory tie rod ends.

Go wheeling, good idea. Run into *****...Bad idea, don't forget you still have stock rod ends.

And I read earlier that you went and got a v8 Zj drag link, and I just have to ask why, because I read they were the same for the zj's and xj's for any package. The difference is only that the v8 Zj tie-rod is thicker/solid and has a bigger rod end.

I didn't go with it, I couldn't find on in the jy today. I have been told the zj drag link is thicker than the xj one.

I finally got the front driveshaft back on...took 5 hours to get the exhaust mostly out of the way. It still hits the driveshaft when flexed but I am ok with that.

When you going down to jeep beach?

you can register your jeep there if you want to go on the courses, or you could just pay $5 to get in as a spectator

So i got an all metal radiator and installed it with the help this acquaintance that is a mechanic... He had me fill it with hose water and coolant.

You need to flush the whole coolant system out and then put in the proper mix of antifreeze and water.

It's not necessarily dirty because of hose water. Usually, you will pic up crud that's built up in the engine block for a bit until you flush it and drive it a few times.

Did a little wheeling last night and freaking bent the IRO double sheer track bar at the TRE. This is the same trail I have done easily a dozen times before so I don't know how it bent I guess I need to take it easier on the way to the grocery store next time.
