I am looking at this too. I decided to simple sleve my stock tie rod with pipe, cheap and dang effective. I ran Carnage Canyon today, my tie rod took a couple of good shots, but no mishaps. So the pipe sleve mod also goes on when I do my skids here soon.
Running Chinaman's Gultch tomorrow, should be cool.....
I figure the pipe sleve should last me until I figure out who's HD Steering I am gonna go with. I looked extensively last night at a guy that had the Currie setup, even though their cust svc. may suck, that was one really super nice steering setup. Beefy as it gets I would say, the stock Rubi steering looked really whimpy by comparisons.

If you go with something other than the flex tie rod, make sure you upgrade your tie rod ends at the same time to something stronger. Otherwise you will transfer the break point to something much hard to trail fix.
