I guess my question is...since I want to upgrade to 33 " skinny tires someday is this something I should seriously consider right now? (Replacing crosslink?)
Do you mean the steering bar that connects to the driver side knuckle? That's called the tie rod.
The bar that bolts to the steering box is the drag link.
It wouldn't hurt if you replaced it. A cheap upgrade is to use ZJ parts. You need three parts:
Driver side tie rod end. (Bolts to knuckle)
Passenger side tie rod. (Bolts to drag link)
Connecting sleeve. (The adjustment sleeve)
Somebody else can probably help with part #'s.
