Q JAMES MCGINN • 04/19/2020, 2:40:24 PM How do I know i need the steering box brace/spacer if I have a 3" lift and use 30×9.5×15 tires? Can one tell if the stock brace/spacer is broken?
A 04/20/2020, 2:14:51 PM You would have to pull the factory spacer to see if it's broken, but if you go that far you may as well replace it.
Q stu • 06/14/2020, 10:09:51 PM Is this bracket compatible with Durango steering boxes? Thanks
A 06/16/2020, 9:57:53 AM Yes, but you may need to add a couple washers between the inner brace and box. You can test fit the brace on the bench to see how many (if any) you will need. Make sure you have proper thread engagement after adding any washers.
Q Remy Chilcote • 02/22/2021, 1:54:49 AM Do you use longer bolts than stock for this product? (7/16-14UNC x 3.75")
A 03/01/2021, 2:57:04 PM This kit is designed for factory length (3.75") bolts. We ship 4" length with the full UNF system.
Q Remy Chilcote • 02/23/2021, 12:04:23 PM What is the length of the hardware used with this spacer?
A 03/01/2021, 2:42:00 PM 7/16-14 x 3.75" grade 8
Q Zach • 01/08/2022, 0:32:12 AM Does this spacer come with mounting bolts? It is unclear in the description, reviews, q and a.
A 01/12/2022, 10:14:10 AM Sorry for the confusion, the spacer includes new hardware for the steering box and the additional back mounting hole.
Q Max • 07/14/2022, 2:41:07 AM Can this be installed without cutting? I have a stock height, stock suspension XJ and I want to retain the factory bumpers. Is it worth opting for the full Unibody Tie-In Kit for $100 more? Even if I am staying at stock height and stock bumpers? Thanks!
A 07/18/2022, 9:58:46 AM We'd recommend just the spacer if you are staying stock. No cutting required!
Q Justin Sample • 12/11/2022, 3:11:15 AM Would this work for a RHD XJ?
A 12/13/2022, 3:27:42 PM It will not.
Q Greg Smith • 01/23/2023, 1:27:25 PM Will this work on a RHD one if it is flipped over?
A 01/30/2023, 4:19:30 PM It will not.

Dan (MN.) | July 22nd, 2019
The part is heavy duty, but the spacers were not centered on the holes on the plate. Made it a pain to install. I had to take it back off and drill out the holes a bit to make everything line up. That made it take about twice as long to install.
Note From JcrOffroad: Sorry about the trouble, it must have been a bad part that didn't get caught in inspection. We would be more than happy to send you a new one if you could conatct customer service at 269-353-1184.
