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 1 1/2 Ton ball joints designed specifically for the JL.
  • 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 provides 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 hardenability 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:

  • Easy bolt-on installation.
  • Engineered for proper clearance to other chassis components to eliminate interferences.
  • Tie Rod adjuster is manufactured from large 1-3/4" diameter solid high strength 7075 Aluminum for maximum strength.
  • Pro-Series 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.
  • Hard coated for long term serviceability and durability.

TORQUE SPECS:

  • Clamps need to be torqued to 80-85 ft lbs, and should be oriented so that they do not interfere with anything else (generally facing forward or down). Clamp torque need to be checked at 500 miles, and then again at 2000 miles. After that, every oil change the torque specs should be checked as well as after any hard wheeling/off-roading. 

    * Tie Rod fits all left-hand drive JL Wrangler JT Gladiator models 2018+ including Rubicon and requires a 1 3/4" diameter damper bracket that is not included. Check out the YETI XD Damper Bracket.

    Note: A minimum of 17” wheels is recommended.
