    Highly recommend people do this if you've put your heims through the ringer. I had my originals heims on for about 4 years and they were finally shot after all the offroading I've done and constantly running 37s/40s. Below are photos of the new versus the old. I love that the new heims come greased and with a boot cover.

    Nice and beefy. I’ll be having to go this route too eventually. Bulletproofs tie rods aint hitting on shit.

    Don’t your ends have boots to cover the ball joint? I talked to David today prior to ordering some for my 08 tundra and he assures me they come with boots installed and permanently lubed. So...I’m confused by the pics you posted.

    The earlier version didn't come with the boot.
