7/8" x 18TPI RH Tube Adapter 1" ID HEX

7/8" x 18TPI RH Tube Adapter 1" ID HEX

This is a Hex Head Tie Rod End weld bung/tube adapter. In a TRE adjustability is the key to easy adjustment so we provide this style with all our steering kits. Here we offer them individually if you are making your own Drag Link or Tie Rod.

They are more expensive to make than our standard weld bungs but make setting up your steering that much easier.

*Tips to help prevent any seized or warped threads.
  • Correctly adjust welder settings. (Too much heat can warp the threads)
  • Not welding the tube adapter with the rod end threaded inside. (Getting the rod end too hot can damage the liner)
  • Be careful to not keep too much heat on the tube adapter when welding inside of D.O.M.

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 1 ton Upgrade
By Jeff Vande Guchte in MI on 6.2.2019
I got a pair of them, 1 LH and 1 RH for a 1 ton over the knuckle set-up for my YJ D44 front. They fit in the tube great with plenty of material left for welding and strength. They have over an inch outside the tube so they are easy to grab onto with a wrench for tightening or loosening. These are my new go to for 1 ton steering.

By Steven Stock in AZ on 8.26.2018
I used this with welded tubing, not the DOM sold by RuffStuff because it is what I had. I do not recommend this as the fit is not great and this makes it harder to align when welding. I had to start with tubing which was looser, tack the adapter in place and then hammer it straight before welding it up. Do yourself a favor and buy the DOM. The seam inside welded tubing makes working with the welded stuff a real pain. The adapter welded easily and I had no problem getting good weld penetration.

By Hip2besquare in MD on 3.29.2017
This tube adapter along with the DOM tubing Ruff Stuff sells was exactly what I needed. The adapter fit perfectly inside the tube, no slop so I was not worried it being straight. I was a little worried about overheating the threads during welding, but everything turned out fine.
