Thanks for the Sticky Randii, and the tally thread. In order to get things going I'd like to try to get at least 10 people willing to put down a deposit. The deposit amount would be $75 per set, or a little under 30%. If we can get these kind of numbers together it should allow me to do a production run, including all of the preordered TieRods and a few extra sets as well.

Thanks Everyone
Dallas



fwiw...............i 100% agree with this. the TRE's are the right solution.

These are really nice and a serious improvement over stock. If I still had the need, I'd be signed up for a set. I swapped way too many broken ones on the trail.

Hey Dallas,

Will these allow more down travel than stock? As I'm sure you know, our rigs are limited by how much down travel we allow in the IFS due to the tie rods boots getting pinched.

Actually, minus shocks, travel is first limited by the upper ball joint, followed by the outer CV joint. Tie-rods are not an issue.

What's up Matt, long time no talk.

Per this post:

http://www.4x4wire.com/forums/showf...&o=&fpart=1&vc=1

Sorry, I don't know how to how to turn the above into a nice neat link. Anyway, I've got one of Joe's diff drops sitting in my garage waiting for the weather to heat up, so the cv's are not an issue. Looking at my rig as it stands right now (Calmini control arms with 3" torsion bar lift, no ball joint flip), when it's reached it's current max amount of down travel, the tierods boots are very close to being crushed. My plan was to flip the ball joints and, if that works out ok, maybe add spacers to increase my down travel a bit more. Per the above link, if Dallas' "Stinky Rods" allowed more down travel without me needing to change the boots all the time, I would be that much more justified in spending the $$$ (an added benefit in addition the the increased strength). As also mentioned in the other thread, the ball joints would the other obvious issue. I would still like to see someone come up with a wedge shaped ball joint spacer to decrease that sharp angle.

Sorry mods, don't mean to hijack this thread into something that has already been gone over in a past thread.

what you are asking for is a TRE that has a higher angle of Mis-alignment than the stock isuzu TRE. i am sure that a comparative between the max angles achived on the Spicer rod end Dallas is using and the OEM isuzu TRE could be done, but............

this is a moot point i think. Tie Rods set the toe in and are therefore a fixed length. what you are suggesting is that with your modifications you are getting to the max working limit of the TRE which is inturn as you are calling it "limiting" something.

if the boots are ripping, just swap to a shell type Poly boot instead of the stock rubber boot.

my point is that you are asking this product to do something that is beside the point. This is all about eliminating a weak spot that is a very common break on the IFS.

honestly this is a very good solution.

Gee, I wonder why Dan broke so many tie-rods... Let's see... This is what Dan did just a short while before lunch (which was when he welded it back together):

Can't ya keep those damn tires on the ground man? Well, I guess that's why you went to the solid axle, huh? <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

This photographic flashback brought to you by Moab 'Zu Zoo. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Anyway, back on topic... Since I now actually have a vehicle to use these on, I will weasel the money out of the checking account and send you a deposit Dallas. Need to give it a few weeks tho, so don't put me on the list just yet...

-Chris
P.S. Dallas, you should get someone who's quick with flash to program the above pictures into an ad you can run on your site, if Dan would allow it.... JasonB comes to mind but I haven't seen him on here in awhile -- next one to jump to my mind is Smiley cause he sent me a flash he did, quite nice -- and you know Smiley has a way with words... <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />
