Welcome aboard,the best prowler site,great members,with a lot of good info.I have heard of some guys putting a sleeve over them,and I think wicked bilt also makes a set,they also make heavy duty rack and pinion steering for the prowler.

I think I'll make tubes up myself, and order heavy duty ball joints. Has anyone experienced failures with the stock tie rods, and what conditions caused the failure? I keep adding spare parts I'm gonna need a bigger trailer!

I would say hitting objects,would bend or break the tie rods.

remember that might be the safety link ... cheep tie rods V/S torn up suspensions and or steering box failures ect ect

when ya beef up on one part U usually move to the next weak link for breakage.

name is Gary or hey you if ya forget

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there
'01 Dodge / Cummins / Dually, a ton of stuff added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us
