    Yup, it's definately stronger than stock. Go get one off a ZJ with a V8, put new ends on it and bolt it in. Make sure it is a V8 ZJ tho, the 4.0l ones are the same as stock XJ/TJ.

    Good point. The V8 is much stronger. Is the WJ and ZJ the same?

    No, XJs, TJs, and ZJs with the 4.0l all had the same steering. ZJs with the V8 had a heavier duty tie-rod that will bolt right into the lighter duty setup.

    WJs had a completely different steering design. It's a great upgrade but requires some fab work on the front axle, trac-bar mount, sway bar mounts, and WJ knuckles. It can also be kinda expensive, although I think it can be done cheaper than I stated above. I'm working on a better write-up with a complete parts list and hopefully cheaper price tag.

    XJ/TJ/ZJ inverted Y steering looks like this:


    WJ steering looks something like this:

    Thank you for the pics. That helped. I was confused. I will be going with the ZJ V8 tie rod swap for now since I can just bolt it in and not have to fab something up for now.

    I agree. What up John? That video is awesome. Well except the part it missed but still worthy of posting.
