Nothing says street legal like real tie rod ends. I can't say I ever saw a Johnny Joint used on a steering linkage, but people do some strange things.

I prefer the inverted T steering setups with GM style TRE's for trucks that run a steering box and that see highways. I have never seen one completely fail, and many have outlasted the Ford knuckles when used in the high steer position.

If there is a lot of inclination on the drag link, no matter what type of end you run, make sure to have the end at the steering box come in at a neutral angle.
