I put FabTech HD tie rods on my truck back in 2010, have competitively sled pulled since 2012, and never had an issue with them. I've put well over 100k miles on them since install, and I've put almost 130k on the truck since I bought it.
I haven't really touched the front end of my truck since late spring/early summer 2012. Cognito upper control arms, Moog pitman and idler arms, Kryponite Super idler pivot, Cognito pitman & idler support kit, and a DMAXstore idler frame brace installed then to go along with the FabTech tie rods. Drop the front end all the way down with the torsion bar bolts in my cup holder. My truck pulls great, front end doesn't flutter or shake, and goes the direction I point it to go.
