    Just swapped out the tie rod on my 99 TJ replaced it with one from 98 Grand Cherokee with a V8. This V8 tie rod is solid not hollow tubing like factory TJ units. Also runs a larger tie rod end at the knuckle. This is a bolt in swap with parts that can be replaced at any parts store.

    The moog part #'s you will need are:

    DS1312 Left hand tie rod
    ES2079S Adjusting sleeve
    ES3096L Tie rod end

    Make sure you specify left hand hand tie rod. For some reason the parts books label a Grand Cherokees drag link as a right hand tie rod.

    This should work for all 97-04. I know it fits a 99. Good luck.
