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?
A 09/09/2020, 1:19:05 PM It will work with stock height vehicles in the UTK setup.

Doesn't last too long, customer service not much help
(CA) | April 14th, 2021
I put this kit on my jeep about 3 years back, and since then I've had constant issues with it. Handling is a bit worse than stock, components come without paint etc., and everything wears out quick. When I've reached out to customer service they've given vague answers like "throw a couple poly bushings in, should take care of it." I'm not really getting specific help with my issues, and if other JCR components are needed to make this steering work right, that should be indicated up front or included in the kit.

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 will still support JCR's other products but will stay away from their steering products.
