F350 to Jeep steering problems

Im trying to figure the steering setup to swap a D60 from a 2010 F350 into a 04 TJ. The plan was to use 1.5"ID DOM and weld in the correct inserts to use the factory ford TRE at the axle end and the stock Jeep TRE at the pitman arm. However I cant find a 22x1.5mm threaded insert anywhere. Does anyone know of where I can get one or how to get around it?

TIA

Use GM 3/4 TRE. they are 7 degree taper with 7/8 threads. bungs are easy to find and I believe ford uses the same 7 degree taper.

Then simply buy a reamer and ream your pitman to the matching taper. That's what I did when I went tons.

Also I wouldn't even think of using a stock Jeep TRE with this swap. They are way to small.

I think the part number for the TRE's are ES2010L ES2010R. Or if you need the longer shanked ones It's ES2027 or ES2034 IIRC.
