**NEW** JK Wrangler HD Tie Rod - Fits Stock Wheels!

At Metalcloak we are continuously looking at all our products and discovering ways we can improve them - sometimes the improvements are small... a fitment here, a nudge there... but sometimes they are momentous...

Our JK Wrangler Tie Rod is one such case. After discovering weaknesses in our first design, we corrected the problems and created a much better product. But we were not totally satisfied.

We asked ourselves the question... what more could we do?

Introducing the Game-Changing HD JK Wrangler Tie Rod...



But what is different? Everything.

First the material... after extensive testing of different materials, we focused on building our Tie Rod out of 1 3/8" DOM (3/8" Wall). This proved to have the greatest resistance to bending and the best return to form when impacting a solid object.



Next, the rod ends... Typical 1-Ton Rod Ends are easy to source, but the challenge the presented was limiting what size wheels or what backspacing you had to have to run them. Our specially designed and manufactured "Dog-Legged" 1-Ton Rod Ends are offset so they fit on Stock Wheels!



In addition, besides the sealed boot, and the JK-Specific bolt taper, there is a special Anti-Flop feature that limits front to back motion...



Together these elements create another Game-Changing product from Metalcloak that we hope meets your needs and exceeds your expectations.

This product is also part of our new full steering kit featuring an updated Drag Link and the OME Steering Stabilizer.

What maintenance is needed for the Tie Rod and Drag Link? I've had mine for almost 2 years/15k miles, and I'm getting a clunking noise when I hit potholes/go over speed bumps, and an odd rubbery rubbing noise when one side or the other elevates. I'm able to twist them a few degrees forward and back with my hand, but the steering feels solid still. They have zerk fittings, what type of grease is used? Thank you. I tried to contact your website, but your Captcha isn't operating correctly.

Thank you for asking. We recommend a high pressure moly grease. The ends should only need 1-2 pumps every 5-8k miles. From what you are describing it actually should like the track bar bolt may have backed off a bit. Try loosening it and torquing it to 125ftlbs. This may fix your issue.
