The material for the rod end will be 4130 chromoly tho.

The stud will slide into the tube and this will be welded to the tube. Then the other end will be drilled and taped for an ES2010L rod end.
Steering will bend when you bang it on rocks, try to spend a bit of time getting the tierod as high as you can, well worth the effort

No can do. Where I have the tierod is about as high as I can get it with out redoing ALOT. If I was to do high steer, I would have to raise the frame another 3 to 4" on the passenger side. when the axle is full bump on the pass and full droop on the driver. My tie rod line would be above the frame on the passenger. The way I have everything set up where the tie rod is now Is where it is staying. If I did the artec arms with the double sheer. I could only raise the tie rod 1-2" and the amount of work to do that is not worth it. I would have to redo all the trac bar mounts on the axle and frame. The hydro assist mount. Plus all the money that involves its just not work that little benefit. The problem I have is that week cast rod end. Its so long that it bends. This will fix that issue. Yes my tierod might not be the highest. But it gets the job done.

Also it will take alot to bend half inch wall chromly tube.

And dont even say full hydro. That is not happening ever. Im talking lots of custom parts to me made to get that to work with my engine.

Nothing wrong with hydro assist, work well on my Jeep and the steering has stayed together without to much bending in lots of big boulders. If this works for ya great, can you move the draglink to the steering arm at all? Or does that require a different length trackbar, brackets and all that jazz?

Requires lengthening and brackets. And "jazz". I am kinda stuck with this until I feel like dropping a grand on the steering and lots of labor. I am sure I will one day go to high steer, but that day is a while away. For now I will just have two tire rods made and keep one in the truck.

I cant beat the price of what these new rods will cost me to do this.

Busy working away. I feel like I should be Santa's little helper elf.

Fuel Cell for two of my IndyORV buddies. Same size an RCI cell. But has a dropped center for the factory TJ pump to reach the bottom of the tank. Also will be made out of 0.100" AL. Because the one guy has cracked 2 RCI tanks already.





Little video of it going together.

Funny you ask. On the two I am building we were talked this after noon about adding some, and It looks like we are going to add two baffle plates. Which the RCI's do not have.

Probably a wise choice. Any interest in building something like the GenRight LJ Safari tank? I have a hard time spending $1200 on some welded together aluminum sheet. I know that trivializes it a bit but, the price of gas tanks just seem way too steep.
