Need help identifying/adjusting aftermarket tie rod

My new to me Jeep has an aftermarket steering setup. I'm trying to adjust the tie rod to center the steering wheel, but I can't get it to budge. I've soaked it in PB Blaster, but all it does is rotate on the joints, which I'm concerned about damaging if I put too much pressure on them. I can't tell if the nuts are welded to the main bar or if they should back off. Can anyone identify this setup and give me some insight on how to adjust it? Thanks.

Are you loosening in the correct direction? Left hand threads on one end. Otherwise you are doing fine with the PB blaster.

will help if you can use say a big pipe wrench on that Dom bar. Brace it. then with the correct size open end and brass hammer tap it the correct direction , nut should break free. It dont look rusted, might be just well set. Jamb nuts need to be tight. people tend to not enough or to much on them.

That dont work, heat the nut then do the above again.

Nice catch on the threading. I was able to break the drivers side loose with a little extra motivation from a BFH (and turning the right way). The passenger's side looks like standard threading and still wont budge. I'm post PB blaster and heat. I'm off to try some more aggressive methods and see if I can bust another nut!
