Custom/universal Tie Rod Ends

I saw a Superduty at the Jamboree that had a crazy looking TRE on the drag link down on the knuckle that appeared to go all the way through the knuckle and then through another TRE that was on the tie rod then a castle nut. I have been on the hunt for something similar to that. if anyone has any ideas where i could find one that would be awesome.

some people do the same thing with heims but I dont want to run Heims in the steering.

Yeah those look just like the ones on that stock 250. If the 450 is back in the shop tonight I will take a look and take a couple of pictures for you.

well its defiantly a stock part but it is not going to work, that TRE is like a foot long. id have to use the entire tie rod and im not even sure its the right width. so i guess that is out of the question.

it was raining i didnt look long but just enough to know its not going to work
