Has anyone built their own HD outer/inner tie rods

Hey everyone! Idk if anyone has started a thread on building/designing their own custom/diy HD tie rod assembly but I thought I would start one anyway. It seems like there’s only one option out there and it’s the ReadyLift Off Road Steering Kit. All-Pro used to make a HD steering kit but I think they discontinued it. I’m sure you can build out these sets so if anyone has done so let me know!

CAMBURG makes the sreering Heim Cleves kits for Toyota Tacoma 4Runner and Fj, which is the most important part of the kit, and it might fit your Fj as well depending what model year you have.
But first you need to know whit size your inner tie rod “THREAD” is which is mounted to the RAM and the rest of it is off the shelf products.

Marlin Crawler has the Marlink I have 5th get T4R. And they are beefier same as the 150 line. You need to be carful since they are a fuse to break before the rack

I looked into it and was stopped by the taper of the outer tie rod end into the spindle.

Re: Has anyone built their own HD outer/inner tie rods

Like others have said - there is built in weakness in these vehicles to protect more expensive/critical parts.
The cost of developing aftermarket parts and the risk of breaking things like the rack - wouldn't it be cheaper/easier/more sensible to have a spare OE tie rod end in your spares kit?
How many have you broken?
