Price: $180.00
Pros: Stronger 1" solid tie rod, is strong and hasn't bent yet.
Cons: Cheap, drag link is same as stock.
Recommended? No

Comments: The tie rod ends were completely rusted in 3 months, the bolts on the adjustment sleeve on the tie rod stripped out on me after 6 months and it almost killed me. After 7 months both ends of the drag link were completely shot and gave me horrible steering slop. This is pretty much just a ZJ steering upgrade. I do pretty tough wheeling but I don't abuse my stuff, this steering really let me down, plus it looks like crap because it has natural bends in it. My recommendation is save the extra 50-100 bucks and buy the good stuff.

P.S. It's about a month later now and now I have managed to strip out the drag link adjustment sleeve bolts and also, an entire tie rod end. The hardware with this steering, including the tie rod ends are absolute crap. I highly DO NOT RECOMMEND.

Price: $175.00
Pros: Stronger Tie Rod over stock. You can see the difference. Cheep and afordable. Easy to install. Took about 2 hours along with doing a new 5th shock.
Cons: Drag Link and Tie Rod seemed as if they were from the junk yard and had been reconditioned. (The links had some small specks of rust on them. Could have just been sitting in a humid where house for a while.) All the TRE's looked brand new but had after market type boots on them but the one on the passenger side knuckle. The adjuster sleeve on the Tie Rod seems like it’s to close to the wheel and looks as if it were to be hit hard enough it would buckle. May need a spare just in case. Cheep Castle Nuts come with it. So you will want to go to the store and get better ones.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I found that all my TRE's had blown boots and the stock system was covered in rust so I decided to upgrade. With having done my rear axle and regearing and going to a Clayton Lift my funds were kind of gone so a Currie was out of the question and seeing some of the reviews from the others I keep looking. This seems to be about the same as doing the ZJ upgrade and it was kind of cheep from Rompalicious (175.00) plus free shipping. So I ran with it. Did the first road test and it seems to be just fine. Trail test will be shortly. All in all it seems ok.
