Your tie rods are some of the most important and easily damaged parts of your steering system. Basically, they tie your steering rack to your steering knuckle, and their motion is what moves the wheels, allowing you to steer. Because they are a single metal bar with ball joints, they can bend, and when a tie rod is bent, your alignment is going to be way off. If you take your truck off road, you are definitely going to need some upgraded tie rods, such as the Skyjacker Tie Rod Assembly. The Skyjacker Tie Rod Assembly is CAD designed and constructed out of 1.25 inch DOM tube with a thick .25 inch wall. Because Skyjacker has been building truck components suitable for off road use for over thirty years, they know exactly what kind of durability you need to keep your suspension and steering working properly. The Skyjacker Tie Rod Assembly is tough, very tough. What else would you expect form a company that produces the "bear of suspensions?"
