Tested on the Rubicon Trail, the Heavy Duty Hex Tie Rod is an HD aluminum tie rod assembly for XJ (87-01), TJ (97-06), LJ (04-06), ZJ (93-98), MJ (87-92) Jeeps. Made from 1 3/8" US certified 7075-T7 aluminum. This solid heavy duty design is an ideal upgrade for Jeep enthusiasts who want to beef up their stock steering. Includes Moog tie rod ends pre-installed.
Moog tie rods feature several differences from the OE. One of the more obvious differences is the overall design itself. Whereas many OE tie rods are two-piece assemblies, Moog's tie rods are forged one-piece units. This one-piece design reduces the chance of early wear, increasing the durability of the part as a whole. To protect your tie rod, Moog uses a neoprene-sealed rubber dust boot. This dust boot is resistant to both extreme temperatures and abrasion. The design for this rubber boot includes a small valve to allow for the flushing of old grease and contaminants. In addition to all these other features, Moog crafts their tie rod end using hardened full-ball metal studs. These hardened studs can stand up to much more than the OE, making the tie rod that much more dependable.
