Details

NOTE: THIS SYSTEM IS NOT A BOLT-ON CONVERSION AND INSTALLATION REQUIRES PROFESSIONAL MECHANICAL AND FABRICATION SKILLS. WELDING AND MACHINING IS REQUIRED.

With Jeeps getting larger, tires getting bigger, and rocks getting more extreme, the factory steering system just doesn't cut it anymore. Rusty's now offers a heavy-duty over-the-knuckle steering system that raises the tie rod over 3-1/2" and replaces all of the thin factory linkage with heavy-duty components designed to survive extreme trail use. However, raising the steering over the knuckles is not as simple as just bolting everything on top! There are many other things to consider in order to get the job done right, and Rusty's OTK system addresses them all with one complete package.

The Rusty's OTK Steering Kit consists of a tie rod, drag link, adjustable track bar, track bar frame mount, a weld-on track bar axle mount, stabilizer mount, and all the hardware. That's right, all of these components are required in order to get the job done safely and properly!

Whenever possible the tie rod, drag link and track bar are constructed of 1.5" x 0.250-wall DOM tubing; some applications may need to be built from 1.25" x 0.250-wall tubing for clearance issues. We use the highest-quality 3/4" rod ends with 5/8" diameter mounting holes. The rod ends that we use are stronger than tie-rod ends and should last as long as tie-rod ends, even on daily driven vehicles. Score, BITD, SCCA, and just about every type of race vehicle use rod ends at all steering pivot points. Only Grade 8 hardware is included along with machined misalignment spacers and safety washers that prevent rod end failure from over-articulation. All bolt-on parts have a durable black powder coated finish, while weld-on parts are raw steel.

Note that 15" stock wheels and 15" aftermarket wheels with factory backspacing will not work with this system! All 15" wheels must have a maximum 4.5" backspacing; anything deeper will interfere with the steering. We recommend a 15x8 wheel with no more than 4.5" backspacing. All 16" and larger aftermarket wheels will not interfere.

For vehicles with custom axles, please call with specific measurements.
