Stock JK Tie Rod diameter?

Does anyone know off hand what the outside diameter of the stock tie rod is for a 2008 JKUR? I've looked around on google and forum search and i'm only finding OD for aftermarket tie rods. I'm having a custom made 7075 t6 aluminum tie rod made for our JK and it's 1.5" diameter. Just trying to figure out if the steering stabilizer clamp I have will fit on this new tie rod. I replaced the steering stabilizer last year and the dealership gave me a new heavy duty tie rod clamp for the stabilizer and a new larger OE stabilizer as they redesigned them all vs what I had on there from the factory.

If anyone could post up the size of the OEM tie rod outside diameter I would appreciate it. My Jeep is not with me so i cannot measure it and I need to figure out if I need to order a new tie rod clamp for the stabilizer today for the new 1.5" tie rod.

Thanks

Eric

looks like it's 1 3/8" for anyone that cares or needs this info.

yes you will need a new bracket as others have showed. I had made a 1-1/2 od by 1/4 wall tie rod and bent it to **** on my first trip out... Hopefully your aluminum one is solid that may help
