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.

  • I really like JCR products. This kit is beefy and I was super excited when I installed it. Installation was a breeze with the correct tools. This is an update and final honest opinion on this kit. A little over a year running this, with only a couple off road trips run and mostly daily driving, the tie rod ends are completely shot. I have noticed the steering has been getting worse, it actually feels a lot worse than the stock steering setup I was originally running with 33s. I had upgraded my front axles and had to drop the tie rod to gain access to the carrier and noticed the tie rod end had a ridiculous amount of play. Really disappointed. New replacements are half the price of a new kit and I am not about to spend that money to have them only wear out with light use and a short period of time. Upgrading and then having to upgrade again due to cheap parts used is no good.

  • I run this kit on my tj with a 5.5" longarm kit and 35s. Its a very nice beefy kit and acts like a plow for rocks but after running the kit for about 3000 miles I get nasty death wobble around 40-50 mph. I got the tires rebalanced, a new alignment and even replaced all my front heim joints with johnny joints and still no luck fixing it. However once I put the steering stabilizer back on it went away, Also I notices the drag link has some play in it while turning even though its properly tourqued.

  • 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.
