There cheap and extremely quick and easy to replace!
    put an old tie rod end in a baggy and in bottom of console or tool bag. If you bust one on trail you will be glad for the emergency spare.

    Since this is all new. I'd have to buy a new part to stash away. I'll look up the # in a parts list and see what costs come up for it. I don't ride hard. My Kingquad had original ends and bushings at 13,000km. If you were coming up behind on the trail. If I see you (I have a mirror now), I can see those who ride with their headlights on and should be a MUST. You'd find me pulling over to wave you on past me. I continue after and repeat as others encounter me even coming the other way I pull to the side for ample clearance which is a real must do in the SxS. The ATV had more room to pass.

    Tripp- before spending money on a spare you might just think about replacing the OEM with an upgrade and using the OEM as a spare I have included the auto ones with part number you can find at most auto parts stores. Rather than spending the bigger bucks for the Moog I figured any china knockoff of an automotive grade part will be fine for the level of stress we need. The pics give the parts number and the other views show where I hand files the tapered shaft straight. Leave a little flat at the top with a thin wrench (I made it 13 mm) and protect boot with a big washer when filing. These ends are a little longer so IIRC I had to cut barrel a little shorter and the tie rod a little (cut them both even so alignment will match).

    for clarity for any machinist types or purists who don't like a little filing time: there is a tapered drill bit you can get to drill out the spindle, but I was not sure if you could accurately control it in a hand drill and the effort to remove spindle and take it to drill press and reinstall would take more than the filing time. And that's not to mention that the cheapest I could find that bit was $90...and I am frugal lol.
    and btw- to save some filing time, use a Dremel or rotary grinder to rough shape the shaft and then clean it up with a file.
