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.

  • 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.

  • We installed this kit on my 1992 Jeep YJ with a 4" lift and 33" tires. It was an easy installation paying close attention to reaming the knuckles and getting the depths right. This was the 3rd kit that I had purchased for this Jeep, I wont mention the other brands but they did not bolt up good and lost about 50% of the steering because they would hit the differential which is obviously unacceptable. This kit is extremely heavy duty and with the added dual stabilizer you just cant get better steering. If you want to save a ton of time trying to make other products work and end up with steering that is durable and most of all safe..........Here it is!.

  • Installed this kit on my 96 XJ with 5" of lift on 33's. Picked up a cheap reamer for $30 I spent about 3 hours on the actual install but I took it slow and did allot of checking the depth of my reaming. Steering is tight and responsive, no dead spot, very little bump-steer. I added a dual stabilizer kit to it and I can now go hands free through holes and bumps and continue going straight. Great kit easy to install and performs phenomenally!.
