Great, I was going to piece together a v8 ZJ rod through my discount hookup at Advance Auto, but ive been eyeballing that IRO tie rod for a few days haha. The side by side comparision pick of it and a stock tie rod cut in half is pretty impressive haha.

Exactly what i was going to do, the reason i went with IRO is the beef factor. I wasn't a fan of the bend in the zj even though it doesn't effect it.

Lol Im the same way, the bend bothers me too.

Realistically if Jeep would have at LEAST gave the XJ a tie rod stronger than a no.2 pencil, we wouldnt be having this conversation lol

Got stiffeners and tie rod with new tres on today. Jeep steers soooo much better, feels sturdier. The stiffeners did stiffen the body roll around corners up a good bit. I wont know how much of a difference they make until i wheel next saturday. Bumper should be in tomorrow the time is not known though, so it might not be done.

The rears were easy, start up front and work back using a c-clamp to keep them tight. The main s weren't hard either using a floor jack to hold it up tight and c-clamp to keep it flush working front to rear also.
