opinions on best tie rod upgrade for the dough

Yes, I finally bent my stock tie rod and now I am wondering what are your best opinions on what to do. I have an 05 LJ, 3" lift, 33's.

I have the currie setup laying in my garage waiting to be put on. I cant say much for feedback now, but if its as good as it looks, i'll be very satisfied. Everyone that runs one seems to love it.

Uh.... did you not look 5 threads down before you posted this thread?

Get the Rusty's if you want the best bang for the buck. $99 shipped with both TREs.

I don't see anyone in that thread that has even seen the Rusty's tie rod, much less run one. How can you say it is the best bang for the buck? Cheapest, I suppose.

The Currie stuff is mighty sweet. Check out the alumiflex also tie rod and the RE version as well.

Threads are the same exact topic. No reason for this one to be here.

With 3" lift do I really need to replace the whole steering system? I've understand that replacing the tierod only will move the weakpoint to the draglink. Will that be an issue later. BTW I don't do serious rockcrawling, mostly trails.

I went with the Currie full replacement kit. I also plan to get a (slightly beefier) ZJ tie-rod at some point to replace my bent stocker, and keep that full setup as a trail spare.

I looked at the Rusty's tie rod and the only problem I saw with it was that it is tapered at the ends where the TRE's mount. So you might run the risk of breaking it at the taper. I have the Off-road Only U-turn steering and think it's fine. That being said, I broke my stock tie rod at the end joint on my first off-road excursion. That's why I stayed away from the Rusty's. Don't want that to happen again.
