Jeep 1 Ton Steering Upgrade.
Available for all makes and models of Jeeps.

Looking to upgrade your stock Jeep steering? Is your lifted Jeep having alignment problems? With our Jeep 1 ton steering upgrade, you eliminate the hard to adjust "Y" stock steering, it allows for a longer drag link to help with your steering angles, and most importantly gives you heavy duty steering that will take a beating and hold up to the off-road abuse.

The rods are a beefy 1.25" diameter DOM, with an almost .25" wall; threads are direct tapped into the tube. This means (unlike a threaded insert) the TRE has full thread engagement into the tube for the length of its threads. On this system the passenger side TRE dust boot is replaced with a polyurethane spacer, which pulls the body of the TRE against this knuckle. This eliminates the tie rod roll that an inverted T setup sometimes has.

While we have had great luck not running a steering stabilizer, if you really have to have one feel free to order this bracket kit from summit racing. This kit will still allow you to easily align our steering setup.

We recommend having this kit installed by a professional 4x4 shop in your area as drilling and reaming needs to be done to knuckles and pitman arm to fit the 1 ton tie rod ends. Installation should take about 2 hours.

Please read the installation instrucions below BEFORE BUYING THIS PRODUCT. This will ensure that you realize what is involved with this install, and the limitations of this setup. Any aftermarket diff guards/covers may need to be modified or replaced depending on their standoff compared to the stock cover. Most half guards (Like the Warn Diff cover) can easily be modified to fit.

  • It is heavy duty and has great instructions for the price I think it should be painted or powder coated when the customer gets it. It is very nice.

  • I bought this kit to run on a Cherokee with a 6.5 long arm lift with 35's. I read the reviews and the descriptions before buying it. And one thing that stood out was a steering stabilizer wasn't needed. I didn't believe it, but the kit installed easy and I'm at almost 5,000 miles with no stabilizer. I also received a call about a month after purchase. I didn't expect it, was asked how the kit was. How the install was and overall thoughts. I've never had anything like that when buying parts for my jeep. All part numbers for recommended tools was right. I love this kit.

  • Had bought this kit to upgrade my 01 xj with 4.5" of lift, my stock steering was falling apart, with this JCR UTK kit, it's 10x beafier and tighter. I absolutely love this kit, jcr had done it very well in this kit.

  • Great setup, completely solved my death wabble.

  • Decent kit. The price is honestly a little steep due to the kit only contains bar stock that's drilled and threaded with generic tie rod ends. This was installed on an XJ with 4.5" of lift and 33" tires. The steering came out okay, although my stock steering seemed more responsive which is a little disappointing. Adding the stabilizer improves things, however the Rancho bracket JCR suggests cannot be used in my setup because it rubs the trackbar when steering is turned left. Three stars for the ease of install, however the results are moderate and most of the cost seems to be more towards marketing rather than labor/parts to make it. Will have to see how it holds up over time.
