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.
Q johnathan Velasco • 12/31/2020, 2:37:55 PM I have a 94 stock steering no lift will it fit with no problem or do I require a lift to make it fit??

Q Ken Amen • 02/26/2021, 0:58:00 AM This says it will fit all Jeeps is that including an '89 Jeep YJ bolt in? Any other modifications required?

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

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.
