The paint is definitely easier to touch up as stated. The powder coat is what we will now offer standard on all Steering kits. We will only coat in our signature dark silver/grey. We can also ship the kits bare steel if specified so you can paint/coat in whatever color you want.

Picked up my steering yesterday. a couple small shipping dings in the powder coating, but nothing big. Its just going to get dinged up on rocks anyways! For those who have installed it, do you reccomend a reamer, or can a good quality 5/8's drill Bit be used?

Be sure to checkout the vendor section later this evening for a product announcement of our OTA track bar setup. It can be purchased by itself, or with the crossover steering for a complete steering system.

Details soon!

Deffinetally reccomend at least 4" backspacing on a 15" rim. This is 3.5 at full lock on a 15x8 with a 33x12.5 tire.

We have nearly 500 of these kits out there. This has by far been our biggest hit and we are still cranking out dozens of them every week. Don't be left on the trail with a stock tie rod looking like a pretzel.

How has the steering been treating you? I'm at 6.5" with durango box and Im considering the cavfab utk style steering where the draglink bolts to the top side of the pitman arm. Any feedback would be great!

Im considering this kit over my Currie setup. I'm at 6.5". IRO double sheer trackbar. I'll have to mount thus UTK and witht he draglink mounted to the top of the pitman arm to keep draglink/trackbar angles the same. Will my heim on my pitman arm bind up at full passenger side droop? Also running long arms. Any help is appreciated before I order and drill my knuckles!

I love my system! Its nice and tight gives good feed back when steering and I never loss turning radius, which is a huge plus for me!

Track bar bracket brace.

Speaking of which, is that an RE setup? I don't remember seeing a brace for the TB?

Most likely RE track bar, track bar bracket and brace.
