Tie Rod/Steering Replacement Options

OK, I bent my stock tie rod, and it definatly needs to be replaced. And I probably should upgrade my stock Steering Stabilizer since I am running 33s. What setups are out there and what experiences has everyone had. Originally I was simply going to replace the Tie Rod with a RE one... But then I noticed that Currie has the whole system, but is quite a bit more.. Any suggestions??

that currie tie rod set looks really nice, big daddy also makes good looking tie rods but the only way they come is using the OE ends, but they say the tie rod is 4x stronger than stock, steering stabalizers OME or Rancho

there are several options...I know 2 people that run the alumiflex and are happy with it.
I run a custom one with heim joints and very large DOM tubing. Poison spyder has
a nice setup, and teraflex makes a High-Steer that is nice. the difference between the
currie and some others is that the currie includes the drag link...most of them use stock tie-rod ends though. I have seen 1 jeeper go through 3 currie tie rods so that is the experience
that I have seen - he is running 35s on very tough trails. Check and see what they have
at 4x4 group buy too.

I snapped my draglink a bit back and replaced it with the Currie. Their tie rods are the same size...and it's much much beefier than stock. Plus, Currie's great to work with, no problems and I've ordered three diff times with them so far.

I ordered the Currie Setup for my jeep yesterday morning from 4x4groupbuy.com I bent my original on a tree stump.

From my reaserch this seems to be the easiest upgrade for the money. I guess the next step would be to go with sometype of hi steer setup.

I'm gonna order the Currie system. Far as I know Old Man Emu, Doestch Tech, and Rancho make steering stabilizers.

I'm going with the DPGOFFROAD tie rod. It uses 3/4 ton Dodge TRE's and is extremely beefy.

If you want a cheap alternative you could run a tie rod from a V8 ZJ. They are quite a bit beefier than the stock TJs.
