It broke because I was being dumb. I was climbing a steep hill full of gravel and the truck did not want to climb any higher and I tried forcing it. It started to wheel hop and then snap! No more tie rod. :nono:

I would like to upgrade to the cognito stuff but I cant really afford to do that right now.

I broke down a couple miles from a friends house and he was nice enough to let me take it there until I can go and fix it. Then he did what only a real friend what do. He let me barrow his SS camaro until I get my truck fixed. :devil:
