Rubicon Express RE2601 Heavy Duty Tie Rod with Forged Ends for 07-18 Jeep Wrangler JK

Quadratec Part #: 56116.6005
Rubicon Express Part #: RE2601

Having the right tools for the job is rule number one when undertaking just about any project. You wouldn't try to crush a bunch of huge stones with a 4oz tack hammer, right? You could, and it may work. But most likely you'd break the hammer while trying. Same thing with tie rods. Heading off-road on larger tires and a factory tie rod might get you through the day, but chances are that stock tie rod will bend under the extra stress or worse - snap against an obstacle. So that's why you need a Rubicon Express Heavy Duty Tie Rod. Not only is the bar itself larger and stronger to handle off-pavement issues, but the entire thing is engineered to deal with those larger wheels and tires. Plus its offset forged end design allows clearance for larger axle housings as well as OE backspaced wheels. This Heavy Duty Tie Rod is constructed of 4140 chromoly that measures 1-5/8" around and 5/16" thick to provide the ultimate in durability, and then is finished with a protective silver coating to shoo away moisture and debris. They also made sure it will work with all major Wrangler JK axles; Dana 30/44/60, and it even includes a billet aluminum steering stabilizer mount. And the best part from all this - the bar simply bolts in place of the factory version with supplied hardware. Please note: A front-end alignment is strongly recommended following installation.


Superior Strength: Thanks to its 1-5/8" .313-wall 4140 chromoly steel construction, the Rubicon Express Tie Rod with Forged Ends will sharply resist against twisting and warping that usually claims other inferior bars.

Hassle-free Installation: Despite all its rugged strength, this bar is pushover for installation - simply and easily bolting up in place of the factory bar with supplied hardware. A front-end alignment is strongly recommended after installation.

Plays Well With Others: Ingeniously designed to work alongside all major Wrangler JK axles (Dana 30/44/60) as its offset forged end allows clearance for larger axle housings as well as OE backspaced wheels.

Lifetime Warranty: Rubicon Express covers this Heavy Duty Tie Rod with Forged Ends under a lifetime warranty against workmanship and material defects for the lifetime of the product.
