YETI XD™ 2½-ton Tie Rod

 by Steer Smarts Part number: 78065001

 

STEER SMARTS™ is proud to present our most EXTREME steering linkage “The YETI XD™ Series” linkage for your Jeep JK Wrangler. We applied our 85 years of steering “lessons learned” to develop the strongest most durable linkage ever built for the Wrangler. 

The YETI XD Tie Rod is a direct bolt-on for any JK Wrangler The YETI XD Installs just minutes and there is no need to modify or alter Jeep.

 

Features

YETI XD TIE ROD ASSEMBLY:
  • Easy bolt-on installation.
  • Engineered for proper clearance to other chassis components to eliminate interferences.
  • MADE IN THE USA
BALL JOINTS:
  • 30mm 2 1/2 Ton ball joints designed specifically for the JK.
  • Cold headed medium carbon alloy steel ball studs provide incredible impact toughness for extreme duty usage.
  • Induction heat treated ball studs provide ultimate fatigue strength and superior off-road durability.
  • Steel on steel bearings provide exceptional ball joint wear resistance and robustness.
  • High quality seals ensure long ball joint life. Our superior seals have been rigorously tested to minimize leakage between grease service intervals which greatly improves our ball joint reliability over our competition.
  • Fully greaseable.
TIE ROD ENDS:
  • Powder coat over E-coat for a long lasting appearance under harsh conditions.
  • External threads are e-coated for durability and long term serviceability.
  • Forged from medium carbon high harden-ability steel and heat treated for greater buckling, impact, and fatigue strength.
  • Forged from medium carbon high hardenability steel and heat treated for even greater buckling, impact, and fatigue strength.
  • Large 1 ¼ inch rolled threads at tie rod adjuster and draglink ends provide significantly increased strength over the original equipment threads.
  • Unique “Reverse Pin” technology prevents our linkage from flopping or rocking. This technology is built into the socket unlike the weak external supports on some competitor linkages.

ADJUSTER TUBE: 

  • Tie Rod adjuster is manufactured from large diameter ¼ inch thick wall high strength 4130 Chromoly steel tubing for maximum buckling strength.
  • Adjuster clamps assure proper clamp force using conventional tools without the possible risk of loosening like large jam nuts.
  • Designed with right hand and left hand threads for quick and easy adjustment when installed on the vehicle.
  • Internal threads and tube are also e-coated for long term serviceability.

* Tie Rod fits all left hand drive JK Wrangler models 2007 to 2017 including Rubicon and requires a 1 5/8" diameter damper bracket that is not included. Check out the YETI XD Damper Bracket.

Note: A minimum of 17”wheels is recommended.

    This Tie Rod Assembly is WAY BETTER than the factory unit. The front end rattle and shake disappeared after I took the weak MOPAR tie rod assembly off and installed this! A fantastic upgrade for your Jeep!

    The Yeti tie rod & stabilizer relocation are the best you can get. Don't waste your money on OE or other aftermarket parts that don't even come close to the Steersmarts quality & strength. There's nothing else as well engineered. Most likely the last tie rod you'll buy for your JK!
