    Thumbs up Ironman4x4Fab Goodies

    I noticed when I added the Bilstein 33-151663 6" Lift Rear Shock for Jeep XJ it was sitting pretty low.

    Man, I've loved and longed for that steering brace since he first released it. Nice additions!

    Sent via messenger pigeon. I talk, he types.

    During one of my conversations with Ironman Andy he mentioned a tie rod that used Dodge truck tie rod ends. That they were much stronger than the one's normally used for the Cherokee.

    Years later I asked him about this and he made a tie rod up for me.

    You can see here that the Rough Country Heavy Duty tie rod is about the same diameter rod, but the Ironman4x4fab.com tie rod is longer.
