"I think I will go with the WJ Tie Rod swap for now."
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?
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.
