Why did jeep use the Y steering linkage instead of tie rod go from knuckle to knuckle

Just wondering, why did they switch to this from knuckle to knuckle on YJ? Seems that would make more sense because it wouldn't change toe in depends on load weight.

Now I need to go through the painful process of cussing while kicking and jumping on the pipe wrench, because death wobble just came back worse than ever after the hard top is off. Would really suck to have to go through this twice a year.
