04 raptor 660 needs longer tie rods?

So I just bought a 2004 raptor 660 that was really clean and needed nothing other than two of the toe rod ends were loose. It appears to have a +4 rear axle with 2” wide spacers in the print. I found out that it had the upgraded 12mm thread tie rods so I got some moose ends for it. Today I went to put them on and noticed that when everything is aligned the tie rod ends are only in a few threads. I think it might also have wider a arms as well on it. The outside of the front and rear tires are even with each other, it doesn’t have factory wheels and I don’t know if the offset is different from factory or not. What is the factory width to the outside of the front tires are supposed to be? Who makes a 1in wider tie rod? Thanks

And are your rods male or female threads?
