Default Superduty 60 axle tie rod set up

So I'm putting a superduty dana 60 in my WJ and I'm wondering on the lower tie rods will i need to run offset one ton rods? I see if i run the factory cover I can get by running straight tie rods but I'm going to be running a Solid diff cover. With straight tie rods with the after market cover will the steering bar come in contact with the cover? Anyone experience this?

I'm running the Solid cover on my Super Duty 60 and I believe I may have put a small bend in my tie rod to account for the cover. I'll check when I get home.

Which SD axle? Pre 05 or after

05+ will have issues with the cover. Ballistic makes a nice cover for these axles specific.

I feel if your running straight across the tie rod holes in the knuckle, you will have clearance issues. The factory tie bows out slightly and dips below the center line of the cover.
