    Not yet added to the website but new to our line up!

    BULL tie rods.

    A nice balance of strength versus weight,

    1 5/16" x 5/16" wall tubing. drilled and tapped for the 2010L/R ends.

    Dana 60 and Dana 44/Corp. 10 bolt available. We will also do custom lengths, just PM, email or call for details.

    $75.00

    We can also do jamb nuts for you and will be adding ends to these very soon. As soon as we can negotiate a price that you guys deserve!

    I'll post a pic if you really want one but ya know, it looks just like a piece of tubing!:haha:

    Drag links I'd like to do on a custom basis, built per dimension.

    just a suggestion, but how about machining a couple of flat surfaces into the end of the rods so a wrench can be put on the tube itself? Could be an extra $ option if nothing else. They do come in handy.

    Hard to say when I'll have a price nailed down. Kinda wanted to wait till it was a done deal to put them on the website so I'm pushing to get it all put together. Big corporate deal so things move slow on their end.

    Drey, you already have these!

    Wrench flats we discussed. Rather do them out than in and finding a clean way to do it is the challenge.

    Rather than taking material away and weakening the tube for wrench flats, machine a hex shaft to slide over and weld in place.

    Out not in!:haha: :haha:

    ahhhh, i see now. :thumb: Not sure how much of a concern removing that material is to be honest. Lots of links and steering rods set up that way. If you do use something that is welded on to the outside of the tube... it'd be good if it wasn't toooo much larger than the diameter of the rod... I mean, a big crescent would work, but if you didn't have that, most people don't carry a 1.5"-2" open-end wrench on the trail...

    Very true and good point. Although a 2" open end wrench is always good to have behind the seat, trail or highway!:haha:

    Still waiting! Everybody is on vacation. Drag link depends largely on straight or bent.
