It's easy to win when you are competing against John and Brian.

Putting the shovel on the front of our 60 has helped keep our tie rod straight and in one piece. I highly recommend it.

I've considered doing that. Did you buy a pre made one or build your own?

The bent tie rod has cost me a ram, and if I keep at it, I'm sure it will cost me another.

Built it. If I remember right, it's 1.75x0.120 DOM and 10ga for the skin.

Maybe eventually, but I don't want to rebuild it all just yet. Just want to protect my steering better or make it stronger so it wouldn't bend. Last time Ibent it bad, I also bent my ram.
