Could everyone who has a 47-53 please confirm for me that their tie rod ends are either male or female. I just got a set and they are female ended. They aren’t even close on thread size ether. All the trucks I’ve ever had are all male ended. And I’m a little mad right now and want to make sure my information is correct before I lose my blank on someone.

Most of the male tie rod ends thread into a sleeve, which your new one looks to incorporate. The sleeve could be tossed and the female end screwed on to the tie rod. But if the thread size is wrong, I'd say you got the wrong ones. I'll check my truck when I get home.
