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.

Q charles • 04/16/2020, 2:44:18 PM will this kit work with a 5.5in lift?
A 04/16/2020, 5:17:11 PM Yes, but we recommend over the knuckle for that much lift.
Q matt • 05/15/2020, 4:05:06 PM Does you utk kit require you to run wheels with backspacing or can i use stock wheels
A 05/19/2020, 2:30:30 PM 15" stock backspace wheels may hit the tie rod ends.
Q Josh s. • 08/23/2020, 11:01:04 PM I have a 4.5 lift kit, and it says this will fit up to 4” will it still work with a added drop down pitman arm?
A 09/09/2020, 2:07:14 PM It will work, but angles start to get pretty steep of your trackbar and drag link. Drop brackets can help.
Q Scott • 09/09/2020, 0:55:27 AM Whats minimal lift height needed with the utk setup?

$800 to get it in Canada and didn't last
(Alberta) | August 19th, 2020
Kit comes with beefy rods but TREs were disappointing in their longetivity. Got 2500km out of them before they got play. Greasing didn't seem to help their durability either. Some decent Tres and they'd have a winning kit.

Kit is decent quality, nothing more than any other steering kit available! EXTREMELY over priced! Instructions left a few head scratching moments, had to call tech support for clarification about the bushing on the passenger side......then the tech I spoke with really didn't have any idea and made the comment that he wasn't really sure and was looking at the same thing I was with the instructions. After looking at another brand kit, got it figured out! Would I purchase this kit again?? NO, nor will recommend it. There is other options available that are the same quality for much less!!!!

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.

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. Would buy for another build in a heartbeat. Thanks JCR for a great product.

"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! "

Best thought out 1-ton UTK Kit
(Redlands, CA) | October 18th, 2021
Great product, the use of 1.25" DOM tubing is probably what makes this kit better than all the others. Using straight-tubing allows for a much easier time setting toe. If you use 1.5" tubing it isnt going to clear the stock-trackbar hardware or an aftermarket diff-cover, hence the great choice in 1.25". The TRE's are the typical Moog parts, which will always be easy to source. Drilling out the knuckles and pitman arm can be a choir, easy with them removed and in a vise though. But I would rather have TRE's than heims when it involves a street-driven vehicle. I would have given this product a 5, but the QC leaves much to be desired. I never received the zerk fittings, cotter-pins or poly-bushing. And the real kicker was the castle-nuts, I got 3 out of 4. I had to go to the local junkyard because no part store carried one that would fit and Moog doesnt sell hardware.
