    Description

    Bigger tires can help out a lot when you're tackling tough trails, but not if they lead to a broken tie rod. With the Rugged Ridge Jeep Heavy-Duty Steering Kit you get a bolt-on solution to this difficult problem.

    This tough system features tubes that are made from 1.25" ID SAE 1018 steel. It is cold rolled, pierced, and drawn through dies for a wall thickness of .25". So you get true DOM tubing that has no seams or welds that can fail under stress. Add on the heavy-duty .875" rod ends that have standard tapered ends to fit your stock steering knuckles, and you have one great steering kit.

    If your Jeep is lifted, the Rugged Ridge Jeep Heavy-Duty Steering Kit is a must-have addition. The tough system delivers that extra strength that you need to tackle all of your off-road adventures. Plus, it's backed by a 3-year warranty.

    Just what the doctor ordered to fix that terrible factory design. After installation of this the steering stabilizer was no longer required. Now it drives like you expect a sweet jeep to drive.

    After searching every 4x4 site on the net these seemed to be the strongest and cheapest. Installation was easy and the instructions were simple. Been out once so far and they held up great!

    Install went great, I suggest a air hammer and pickle fork to make things go 100 times easier! Everything is great now all bolted up to my 98 grand Cherokee. I installed delrin bushings into the tie rod ends so it would snug up on the knuckles. Which fixes the sometimes encountered dead spot in the steering with this steering set-up! And auto-anything has it the cheapest, I've looked everywhere and they are the place to get it. Had it in three days after payment, what more can u ask from a company?

    Well worth the buy!!! A behemoth of a tie rod!!! The only thing I will recommend is to get ready to buy some new rims with backspacing. I have Rancho shocks, 2in. Lift Springs and stock rims at the time and after the new tie rods they rubbed my tires and I couldn't turn left. Just get ready to swap out your rims if you haven't already. But it's a definite must-have!!!!

    First let me say my experience isn't the average and it was my first time installing any kind of tie rods or drag links. Overall the kit is very nice. It is a major upgrade over stock for just the price of replacement tierod ends. I had some problems with installation but it was due to modifications on my Jeep. I have a 4" lift and a drop pitman arm. Everything was perfect beofre with the stock setup but as soon as I put this kit on I had some problems. The drag link was too low with my drop pitman arm and the lock nuts would rub on the tie rod and loosen themselves up. I had to order a stock pitman arm to put back on which isn't good because of the added bumpsteer. The instructions also reccomend a dropped pitman arm with a lift over 2". But they knew of the problems with the links rubbing together. It made me a little angry. I wouldn't hesitate to buy this product again though. The look and the beffy tie rods make it worth it.

    Great Kit, easy to install, easy to adjust the alignment also. I really liked the extra jam nuts provided in the kit. I use to run a similar setup on my XJ with only one jam nut per tierod and I was always having to readjust the alignment.

    Straight forward install, only problem was some clearance issues with an aftermarket JKS trac-bar. This may have been a non-issue with a drop pitman or the stock bar, but had to remove the spacer (grind it) off of the lower bar mount to move the trac-bar back away from the drag link to allow full lock turning to the right. Also had to be careful as to the placement of the lock nuts on the drag link lower end, they look like they may hit the tie rod if the flats are not lined up, but again, this would only be at full lock of the steering and maybe not an issue with a dropped pitman arm.
