Depending on my installed parts from now until TDS, I might try Tank Trap. Just need a tummy tuck

Turned out the pinion gear is in great shape, so we just need to get longer bolts and put everything back together

Very nice, why 7/8 instead of 1.25? I would think because the jeep is not in tons but I'm not sure. I was told 1.25 heims for a wrangler on 37"s and 7/8 or 1 ton tre's for steering.

Cost and yes that it's not on tons. My dad runs 3/4 rod ends and they hold up to 37s no problem. So I figure 7/8s would be just fine. I definitely thought of 1.25s though

Write a review with them on the jeep, it's one of the mods I'm considering

What size misalignment spacers are you running? Are you going to use the stock brackets for your arms? Are these going on the front or the rear? Those rod ends look beefy.

They're 3/4 to 5/8 wide spacers so they fit into the stock bracket with a little drilling. They're going on the front lowers and if they work out, i'll be making more for the other arms
