Installed a new Currie tie rod to replace the old Currie tie rod that had been bent/straightened/bent again. Just goes to show you even a solid 1.25" diameter solid hardened steel tie rod can be bent when the going gets really tough.

For those still running the lightweight OE hollow tube 3/4" tie rod on your TJ, the above should give you food for thought.

When you have a choice, buy American.

IF BL/MML, no, you should be alright without that. I am.

If you don't have the BL/MML, stick the spacers in - you'll need something.

Installed and calibrated a Superlift Truspeed Speedometer Calibrator. It took some trial and error to get it right. The instructions were wrong and the customer service guy at Superlift was a MORON. Rubicon's are different from other TJ's and the wiring harness is somewhat different. Once you get through the install and the calibrator is working properly it's a good system for unlimited adjustments for tire and gear changes.
Anyway my speedo after a tire change from 31's to 35's and a gear change from 4.10's to 5.13's is right on the money.

Installed Rock-trac transfer case, and Jeep-Medic Transfer Case and Engine Skids. Then took it out and figured out that I had my air lines for the lockers run in a bad location and when flexed burnt a hole in one. Time to redo those.
