tie rods vrs crossover?

its time for new tie rods i have the dana 50 ttb in my 94 f250 diesel i was wondering if it would be a stupid idea to go to a crossover steering set up. im thinking with it pivoting in the center would there be any binding issues??? also im wondering how the wear and tear on this set up is as i will be doing a fare about of off road and the truck is heavy and is also my DD.. i hope to be going to at the very least a 35 inch tire i also have a lift in the truck and it just looks like a way better set up to go with the lift as i do not have a drop pitman arm now with the price of all new tie rods being about 200 for the cheap ones i was wondering if this would be the better option ?

thanks for any and all input

think with crossover on ttb would cause exsesive tire wear
due to the fact that as suspension travels
track width changes
could also bind as steering arms also change angle
the inverted y setup kind of compensates
the way it pivots in the middle
hope this makes sense to you
