Full Metal Jacket 1 Ton Tie Rod End | 7/8"-18 LH Threads
The Mountain Goat Series™ "Full Metal Jacket" 1 ton tie rod end is a direct fit to the taper of both the tie rod and the drag link connections on the Jeep® JK
Wrangler. These are the tie rod ends that we use on our Part# JK-TR-1375 Extreme Duty Tie Rod
and our Part#
JK-HSDL-1375 Extreme Duty High Steer Drag Link for the Jeep® JK Wrangler.
Our 1 ton tie rod ends are built to take a serious beating! They feature a forged and heat treated SAE1045 housing, a forged and heat treated SAE4135 chrome moly ball stud that is Manganese Phosphate coated, a G3506 high carbon steel internal spring, a tear resistant heavy duty neoprene boot, and a black e-coated finish provides a trick look and excellent corrosion protection.
Our 1 ton tie rod end features complete metal-on-metal construction that offers extremely high wear resistance. There are no nylon liners to blow out like the factory tie rod ends have, and unlike the factory tie rod ends, our tie rod end features a grease fitting so it can be properly serviced.
The SAE4135 chrome moly ball stud features grease grooves that allow for complete lubrication at all times. The G3506 high carbon steel internal spring maintains pressure which keeps the joint tight as it wears. The forged and heat treated SAE1045 housing features 7/8"-18 left hand threads that do not neck down at the base like a factory style GM 1 ton tie rod end does. This eliminates any stress risers and makes our forged housing VERY strong.
All necessary hardware for installation is included. You will receive a 1 ton tie rod end with 7/8"-18 left hand threads, a 7/8"-18 left hand jam nut, a grease fitting, a castle nut, and a cotter pin.
