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.

Great Product - TRE's hard to find
(Denver) | August 28th, 2019
I like the steering setup. I have no "dead spots" in the steering and there's no need for a stabilizer. I greatly prefer this setup to something with heim joints for safety reasons. I've lost a little bit of right hand steering due to clearance on the track bar bolt, but that has not been an issue. I did have a tie rod boot rip (not sure how) and I've been unable to find a replacement boot. Moog parts which correspond to JCR's part numbers in the instructions are not identical products and will require me to completely pull apart the steering, reinstall, and reallign. Moog parts appear to be of higher quality and are cheaper than buying the entire replacement set from JCR. Otherwise, I'm very happy with the setup.

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 rrcx4
