My rear steer is on the OEM arms, its hangs low so the tie rod is a chunk of 2" 1/4" wall sleeved with a slice of .120 wall. It works and has taken a some good hits but I know sooner or later it will bend.
Keep it up high and the axle will keep it protected.

If you are starting with a bare housing why not go with a Ford HP44? 65" wide, available high steer, multiple bolt patterns to choose from (5x5.5, 6x5.5, 8x6.5), stronger inner Cs, and lockout hubs. You can get them for around $150-200 as well.

x2 You don't have to deal with unit bearings, and junkyard parts are readily available. I feel like that is a much better building platform but i think he said he wants to keep the rear tj 44 he just built. But honestly a 63 or 64 inch rear with spacers would match a 65 inch front very well. **** you can't hardly see it on Ronnie's zj with an 8.8 rear with 1.5 inch spacers and his J10 44 (64 wms to wms)... you have to look.

Also some people prefer the rear to be a little narower for trail use.

no doors, no top, no problems

Agreed. A reasonably sized for application quality unit bearing is a lot less hassle than locking hubs and old school tapered bearings.

Pulled up to kickball last night and saw this....





Nothing crazy but you don't see too many AEV-built JK Brutes. It ended up being the owner of the league, who also ref'd our game. I could be wrong but it didn't look like it gets wheeled.

That's the first thing I noticed about that rig: it was ******-parked.

If it's worth doing, then it's worth overdoing.
