Lifting a vehicle takes more than just slapping on a set of taller springs, and big tires change more on your Jeep than just its appearance. Other systems, particularly steering, are affected and if changes aren't made the vehicle's handling and dependability can be adversely affected. Don't put up with an evil handling vehicle or find yourself out on the trail with broken steering parts. These parts are specifically designed and thoroughly tested by Rugged Ridge to make sure your lifted, big tired Jeep handles and can take the abuse when you're out wheeling.
Rugged Ridge starts by beefing up the parts. The tubes are 1 1/4" ID SAE 1018 steel that is cold rolled, pierced and drawn through dies for a wall thickness of 1/4", with no seams or welds to fail. The 7/8" rod ends feature standard tapered ends to fit stock knuckle applications, so you get 1-ton strength without having to make any modifications to the steering knuckles.
The complete heavy-duty tie rod and drag link kit includes 4 tie rod ends. It's been designed as an upgrade for the stock small tube and cast steering linkage when used with larger aftermarket wheels and tires and a suspension lift, and backed by a 5-year limited warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.
Rugged Ridge® is a division of Omix-Ada, the leader in Jeep replacement parts. Based in Suwanee, Georgia, Rugged Ridge was begun almost two decades ago when the enthusiasts at Omix-Ada decided that even a vehicle as tough as a Jeep could be improved upon. Since then, Rugged Ridge has created over 500 accessories to improve your Jeep’s performance, utility and appearance. Unlike parts made for ordinary vehicles, Rugged Ridge knows that every part made for a Jeep must uphold the Jeep tradition of strength and capability, so every part is designed, tested, manufactured and tested again to make sure it’s perfected. Then and only then can it be installed on your Jeep.
