Went to install the Ruff Stuff tie-rod kit last night. It was incredibly simple to setup and align but I ran into one massive issue.
The TREs dont seat properly.
One stressful night, a phone call to Ruff Stuff, and some intense google searching later...I'm a slightly more educated JK owner.
It turns out the supplier of these offset TREs has pretty lacks tolerances. Some fit no problem and some are just a hair off. Ruff Stuff mentioned that if I needed to ream the knuckle I wouldn't have gotten the castle nut that far down on the TRE, so I'm good in that respect.
Very helpful post I found: http://www.jkowners.com/forum/showth...t=82513&page=2
A local club member also clued me into these spacers offered by JCR: http://www.jcroffroad.com/mm5/mercha...ct_Code=PLYBSH
And as for the steering stabilizer options for the Ruff Stuff 1.5" DOM here we go:
This clamp from Poly Perf should work perfectly. I just need to figure out if I need 1/2" or 5/8" mounting holes.
