And then look like this when you put the tires back on the ground?

What tierod is that Blaine? I am running the JKS after my stock one decided it wanted to pull a stump out of the ground that I was stuck on..... I would be surprised if the JKS tie rod would do that

Didn't Blaine say a few months ago he was making a limited run of tie-rods that would bend and then return to original straight shape? I thought he even took orders from some people on here. I assume that is what this is.

but... try smacking that tie rod with the entire weight of the vehicle on a rock, and then lets see it go back to its original shape

Look at how clean the underside of that Jeep is. It's disgusting how bad living in the rust belt is.

You should know better. Go to our website, look at the video of Gerald dropping the whole front of his rig on the tie rod. He does that at least 5 times per run and his tie rod that's been on there almost a year, is made the same way.

I did say that and this is the first one. Heat treated 4340 to about 56-58 HRC.

A lot of spring, huge amounts of strength and nearly indestructible.
