01 f350 tie rod upgrade

I DD an 01 f350 diesel. I don't think I'm particularly abusive. I don't "wheel" it, but it does get put in 4wd regularly and have to get through some mud and/or ruts, and spends time on blast rock logging roads. I'm aware that it's not a race car, and don't drive it like it's one. Its leveled, on 255/85R16 toyo m55s. The raccoon population in my area is pretty high, but as far as I know, they are not responsible for my issues.
Today when we got home, driving my wife's car, I noticed that my tie rod is, for the third time, looking pretty sad. No scarring or anything on the bottom like I cranked a rock, but it has a solid 3/4" bend in it.

Is there a good aftermarket tie rod that's stronger than factory replacements? Should I just sleeve the next new one? Other solutions?

Well, due to overwhelming response and options, I'm gonna hammer a sleeve over it.
