The sleeves are highly recommended for any thing you do with these trucks. I've seen the stock tie rods get bent from smacking a curb hard the wrong way, pulling a trailer out of a muddy field, hitting a parking block on a bad angle. You name it. It is a good piece of mind to make sure you always are able to drive away or back home after unexpected happening (or deliberate as in 4X4 launch or truck pull). I have some 2X4 trucks running around with them for the extra insurance they provide.
