CavFab Jeep JK HD Tie Rod System

The Factory Tie Rod on the JK is simply not up to the task of holding up to larger tires. The tie rod sees a majority of the stress when turning large tires offroad..causing it to be susceptible to buckling or bending. Also, being that the tie rod sits directly in front of the front axle, and is one of the lowest points on the Jeep, it can frequently come in contact with rocks. Finally, the factory tie rod ends on the JK will wear pre-maturely leading to poor steering and even Death Wobble. Our HD Tie Rod System replaces the entire tie rod with a heavy duty system designed and manufactured here in house. We use 1.5" x .25" wall DOM tubing which is exponentially stronger than the factory material used. Our HD Tie Rod System is able to take direct contact with rocks (or other obstacles) offroad without fear of bending. We offer 2 different rod end options for you to choose from. First is our 1 Ton Tie Rod Ends.. These are much larger than the factory tie rod ends, and are directly greasable (via a zerk fitting). These will provide the most quiet and factory like steering characteristics. Secondly we offer a Chromoly heim joint rod end option. The heim joint rod end option is equally as strong and also provides great handling characteristics..however if you choose the Heim joint option, be advised that you will need to frequently lubricate the heim joints as they are not sealed like the tie rod ends are. Either rod end option is perfect for anything from a daily driver, weekend wheeler, or hardcore wheeler. As always this product is backed by the CavFab NO BS Warranty.

  • Fits all 07 - 18 Jeep Wrangler JK and JKU
  • 1.5" x  .25" Wall DOM 
  • Designed, Engineered, Tested, and Built here in the USA
  • Powder Coated Satin Black at no Additional Cost (Raw steel available upon request)
  • Includes all required hardware needed for installation
*We recommend this kit be installed with aftermarket wheels, the factory 17" JK wheels to not have a sufficient backspacing to allow for the larger rod ends to clear. A wheel with 4.75" Backspacing or Numerically less. If you run factory wheels with a 1" or larger wheel spacer this will suffice also** If you have any questions about fitment with a particular wheel, feel free to contact us for assistance.

**Installation of this product is quite straight forward. If you choose the 1 ton tie rod ends, you will need to re-taper the holes in your knuckles to accept the larger rod ends, this is a simple process and can be done at home easily (we sell the required taper bit if needed). If you choose the Chromoly Heim Joint option, you will drill out the knuckles holes (to 3/4" to accept the new hardware included with the heim joints). Again, this is a simple process and can be done at home in your garage / driveway**
